it was amazing
Read in October, 2007

Amazing storytelling. What a gift for weaving such vivid images and emotions from mere words! The description of the pantry and of the Grandmother's cooking is an explosion of sensations. Also memorable is the Grandfather's feelings about the lawnmower. And the Grandmother's death is another stand-out part of this story. Who cares if the story is interesting (to me it was ok but not great), the writing is what makes this book a great read.

Nina I agree with Doug's assessment as I too was more impressed with the writing than the plot. Such memorable parts make this book a good read.
