I am continually disappointed by some of these award winning books (this is a Pulitzer Prize winner for fiction). I found the story too fractured and at times lost within the poetic descriptions of nature. If you attempt this read, you will meet George (a clockworker) as he is dying of cancer; as well as his father, Howard (a tinker) who has epilepsy during the early 1900's in New England.
