Read in September, 2007

I can honestly say that I did enjoy getting to know Fenno (the son-figure)...one of my favorite aspects of this book is that you get to know the narrators as they know themselves, AND you get to know them through the eyes of other insightful figures as well when it is 'their turn to narrate.'

Although I am not a writer and don't even play one on tv, I can imagine that trying to realistically develop characters is in and of itself a monumental task, let alone trying to do it via a somewhat unorthodox medium of multiple narrators/diverging voices. I thought that she did a wonderfully realistic job because it would be easy/unfortunate to either keep everyone superficial (the kind of character that is 'what ya see is what ya get' and isn't really true to life) or is just artificial because how they see themselves is too skewed from how others perceive them....
