really liked it

This was one of the best *stories* I have read in years. Delightful, intriguing, sorrowful, affirming, charmed. I cannot wait to read it again.

Don't read this book to experience the modern novel. Don't read it because you want to know what all the hype was about. Don't read it expecting to have encountered the next great piece of American fiction. This is not that book. This is a book to be savored over a bottle of wine, a book you want to inhabit your dreams, a book you read because, for a small moment, you want to believe that there is more in the world than the transitory stuff that were made of.
