Margaret In no way is this book a page turner -- after two months with it on my table, I still can't even tell you what the story is about. Yes, Obreht may have a gift for describing places and landscape details, but the nameless country, nameless city, and other big picture oversights assumed a familiarity that made all the pages and pages of inane detail feel incredibly pointless. I only got a third of the way through; I can't say I'm sorry I stopped reading.
