I really loved the writing in this book and found it very unusual in the way she moved her story forward. Exceedingly skillful writing combined with short chapters entitled with a theme or subject. It was unlike anything I have read before. Graceful presentation but I did not emtionally become involved in these characters. After finishing it and reading again about the author, it struck me that they seemed characters on a theatre stage, a little removed even though entirely explained. Translucent in a way, not fully engaging although they felt very real, just not jumping off of the page. I can't really explain it other than though it was incredibly sad and moving, I was not moved to tears as it did not grip me viscerally.
Loved the cover too- really a great achievement and I could not wait to read it every day I had a chance.
