Read in July, 2012

There is much about this story that doesn't fit into the mold of how a story is supposed to be written. It has a great deal of telling and some head-hopping. However, if I wasn't a writer or an avid reader, I would never have noticed. It's really beautifully done. For the plot of this story is about ordinary people, living ordinary lives, and the consequences of their choices with each other. It's about falling flat on your face and somehow picking yourself back up again. The scene setting is masterfully described. I've never read a book with so little dialogue that made me feel more like I could see a place, could know what its characters were thinking. I find myself inspired to try harder with my own writing. The story does have some language and adult scenes in it, but they do not detract from the true powerful nature of the story. If you want a book to make you think, this is the book for you. A great read.
