I rate this novel 4.5 Stars.

This book is one of my most favourite reads in a long time. Glass did a tremendous job creating interesting characters and wove them expertly into a subtly strong novel. It is certainly a character driven work that uses different themes and memories to tie it together. I enjoyed that each section (there are three) was from a different character's point of view. I was surprised by whom Glass chose to use as the focus for part three, but it worked very well and did complete the arc of the story. This isn't a neat, sweet story. It is funny, sad and challenging (in parts) and you are hoping the best for each character. The connectivity that is created through main characters who prefer solitude it terrific.
