Read from May 13 to 23, 2011

A very lovely read. The kind of book that develops a world and people you enjoy being with. The prose is beautifully and skillfully written. The setting is ethereal in ways. But I felt that the synopsis was misleading. I was waiting around for more most of the time. Will Mister Psyche have a breakdown or pivotal moment? Who shot the hole in Joejoe's window after all? I suspect that the whole book is just about life and how we just push through it the best we can and sometimes we don't get any answers. But that's life. I'd rather escape from that in my books. Again, masterfully written, but not where I thought it was going.
