it was amazing
Read in July, 2012

I loved this book. It is a great story with big religious and philosophical ideas fit into a never quite there relationship. Beha is a wonderful writer and he is young which means we have years of books to look forward to. Beha writes with soft and sensitive humour but with that trace of 21st century bemusement that some younger authors I have read reflect. That not quite connecting Woody Allen awkwardness while pursuing large ideas in small places is something that works for me. He also presents this story in a mysterious and suspensful way. This style reminds me a little of Paul Auster as does the Auster way Beha reveals his characters. Auster is one of my favorite novelists and one to which I compare most writers except the very greats like Margaret Atwood.
