really liked it
Read in January, 2012

Enjoyed the humor and goodwill of this unusual first-person narration, its subtle mockery of human and institutional greed, deception, ego, etc. while also showing empathy and compassion for these destructive tendencies, hinting at how we might overcome them, or at least tolerate and forgive. That, and some not so easy to forgive human rights horrors and attendant violence. Sigh... But there are characters you can't help but love here, some that you think are bad guys, but...?!

Read it for book group and look forward to discussing it.
