it was amazing
bookshelves: fiction
Read from January 16 to February 13, 2012

I realised early on that many of the references would mean much more to an American reader. Nevertheless, the focus on one family's development/ progress/ passage is enthralling. The slow evolution of the family's relationships establish glacial properties which enable the writer to get inside the heads of the characters. After reading such a mammoth novel it does make you look at your own family in a telescopic way.
