it was amazing
Read from January 15 to 22, 2011

Borrowed from a Library. Hope to own.

This book is beautiful beyond words. Painful, excruciating at times. But even there the words are beautiful.

Joy, infinite joy. Sadness, deep sadness. It will make you think. I can't review such a book.

(view spoiler)

I suspect more than a passing knowledge of The Iliad and The Odyssey would have been helpful as this, too, was a journey of a man returning home to his beloved.

Several bloggers (U Krakovianki and Anne) have recommended it and named a life-changing book and their favorite book; I may have to concur.
