More interesting as a formal experiment than anything else. I really enjoyed large chunks of this, but as I worked through the second half, I had the distinct feeling that I was ready to be done with it. The second and fourth stories are by far my favorite stories of the bunch. And I liked the way it suggested the connection of people through time, because it was less literal for the most part and more about connection through choices, struggles, oppression and experiences. It's tough to pull that off, since it's a fine line between earnest and saccharine, but I think it does.
