bookshelves: novel
Read in August, 2010

First of all, five stars for sentences, for paragraphs. But the novel? Over a longer stretch, I start suspecting that some of the characters are strawmen for a Thomist beatdown. It feels didactic where most of the short stories don't. Maybe that's just my problem.
