I really enjoyed this book--so much so that I was quite sad to reach the ending. The plots are original and carefully formulated, as are the intertwining characters. The continuity is flawless, even if the book does jump about in time. The voice, one of innocence, experience, and sometimes a bit jaded, serves the writer well. I felt so sorry for Rosie coming of age in such a brash, unprepared manner. John Wayne brought about pity and wonder and a hint of childhood wistfulness in his eternal shoeless journey.

This book would be a good introduction to those interested in a.m. homes and her masterpiece "The Safety of Objects." It would also be a muted hint at J. G. Ballard's controversially unsettling yet engaging "Crash." Thus, it is a great introduction to literature that takes risks.
