I really wanted to like this book. Really, really wanted it. The author uses beautiful language, the writing has almost a lyrical quality to it, I just couldn't get into it. It was too disjointed for my taste.

Finally, a Caribbean novel I don't hate. It kept my interest the whole way through, but I didn't really detect a unique voice for each character. It was like the village itself was narrating, rather than individuals.
