Read in June, 2011

This was a novel about what happens when you fall in love with someone who is about to have gender reassignment surgery. As you can imagine, lots of evaluation of "what is gender, anyway?" ensues... I liked how the book examined this issue, and the plot was structured such that the timing made this a very interesting "what would you do in this situation" dilemma. Basically, the woman fell in love with the man while he was still a man, and THEN the man had the reassignment surgery. So once you're in love with the person, how does that change once they become a woman? It was really interesting to think about and Bohjalian always writes well and compellingly about interesting topics, so it was a good (but not great) read.
