This. . . . book. . . . dragged. . .O. . . M. . . G. I slogged through because, well, I do want to see how it all ends, but ended up looking forward more to the chapters from Granuaile and Owen.

Repetitive redundancies abound, as do pages and pages o

"1. A bit of a confession, some of which I've never actually told anyone or said out loud before, but which I now share with the internets.

In the interest of full disclosure, in high school I wasn't popular at all. If there were a popularity graph..." Read more of this review »

3.5 stars for the Owen and Granuaile chapters (nice break from Siodhachan Kevin og Suleaibhan Hearne's '80's fratboy musings).

Review to come later.
Lynne liked a quote
“Which is probably one of the reasons those of us who love contemporary fiction love it as we do. We’re alone with it. It arrives without references, without credentials we can trust. Givers of prizes (not to mention critics) do the best they can, but they may—they probably will—be scoffed at by their children’s children. We, the living readers, whether or not we’re members of juries, decide, all on our own, if we suspect ourselves to be in the presence of greatness. We’re compelled to let future generations make the more final decisions, which will, in all likelihood, seem to them so clear as to produce a sense of bafflement over what was valued by their ancestors; what was garlanded and paraded, what carried to the temple on the shoulders of the wise.”
Michael Cunningham
