Beautifully written, with well put together character connections. I really enjoy the way Morrison creates such vivid parallels between the characters and the environment.

I understand that this was set in a different time, and is still in part socially relevant today, but I did not like any of the characters. I felt no sympathy for any of them, and I certainly wasn't rooting for any one character to rise up and succeed, or at lest get past this ugly point in life they were stuck in. Not that I am entirely convinced Morrison meant for them to be liked at all.
