To say that I wasn't blown out of the water by this book is an understatement. A 'novel in stories' is how I've heard it described. I think that if I had kept that in mind while reading the book, it would have gelled a little more for me. While I was reading it, it felt a little disjointed - like it lacked structure. But then I reached the end and couldn't stop thinking about the stories and the characters - which is after all, what a good book should do. I ended up reflecting on life, aging, and many other things after reading this novel. And worse yet, I find myself bringing parts of it up with friends who've also read it. Putting my initial frustration aside, this is a bood well worth reading.
