Jennifer Meh? I've heard so many good things. Though, The Lacuna was lacking.

Jennifer I think it should have ended somewhere in the middle, and that more should have happened in that first half. There was a lot of reflection on the past and political commentary, to the point of being repetitive and anvil-like. I liked a grand total of one character. The prose is nice though, and it does a beautiful job of transporting you to the Congo. I just found it unsatisfying, probably because of the limitations of the narrators.

Jennifer Exactly how I felt about "The Lacuna"!
