it was amazing

This book is so hauntingly beautiful! The intensity of the prose reads like poetry – see the little excerpt here below, a line I kept reading and rereading. The characters are very real, their feelings and emotion so aptly described and evoked. I felt drawn by these people all along, and read this book in one sitting. This is the sort of book after which the characters remain in you, you seem to know them like other acquaintances. How fascinating would it be to have such a writer leading your writer workshop!


“He would not take comfort in the banality of the present,
but would instead continue striving,
with all of the energy and confidence he could muster,
for the as yet unseen magnificence of the future.” p. 26
