It took me a long time to read this book. It should've been a slam dunk with its accessible prose and engaging narration in an efficient 300 pages. Bohjalian puts his cards on the table right away too. I knew this would be about a birth attended by a...more

Every American should be forced to live outside the United States for a year or two. Americans should be forced to see how ridiculous they appear to the rest of the world!
