I so wanted to like this book, but I had to give up on it due to boredom. I had the same problem with Bezmogis' previous book, a series of linked stories. There is a dryness to this author's writing that is astounding. What could be more fascinating than immigrant stories? Instead Bezmogis presents a dry, sordid world of discomfort - probably true as far as it goes- but it doesn't go far enough. At least in the part I read.
