Not sure why it took me so long to read this book- I had heard it was a good read many years ago. When it showed up on our Classic book list I finally got around to reading it and I really liked it. Very well written with engaging characters. I thought the structure (a string of vignettes from each of the 8 characters) might detract from the narrative- but I really appreciated it; it made a very unique novel. I did find the ending a little hard to swallow- but it was so well-written that I'm willing to let that go!
