Oct 12, 11

Read from October 10 to 12, 2011

An odd but satisfying blend of ghost story, domestic comedy, sex farce and existential debate. I liked the fact that I was never quite sure what direction the narrator was going to take me in or what was going to happen next. Though not traditionally compelling it defiitely held my interest. I appreciated the many layers the book has--more of which I'm sure become apparent on repeated readings. It's so economically crafted and skillfully executed ever-balancing the real with the surreal, the supernatural with the naturalistic--alternatively sad and funny. An unusual literary gem.
