I don't understand the raves for the this book. I read 123 pages then I read dozens of GoodReads reviews. They just confirmed what I'd been feeling all along --- this is a weird book. There's no plot and the stories are rather flimsily connected by the main characters' relationship to the man locked in the guest room. Maybe that's the point... the story isn't about the man, but it's about the people who knew the man. So, I decided that I don't care about their stories and I've stopped reading the book.
