This is a rare book that I read virtually cover to cover in a single night, not because it was so riveting but mostly because it was a smooth read and I spent a long evening home alone. As a fan of Brain, Child, I was attracted to the book because of the author's role in the magazine. The quality of the writing was high, but the second time I picked it up to finish the last 30 pages, it occured to me that the book seemed like a writer's exercise. Can I make this assignment into a fully fledged book? There were a few points towards the end where I thought the author was searching for deeper meaning where there was none, grasping for a way to tie up the end. Like so many books, it started very strong and then just trailed off.
