it was amazing

this is an amazing book that i can pick up and read a hundred times. the dual generations, the factual historical record, all of it is so vibrant and beautiful. the language of Colum McCann is spectacular, and every time i read it, i get so engulfed, i can't put it down. in fact, i may pick it up again tonight!!!

So yes, i picked it up again, and with my pen, underlined things i hadn't noticed before. this is such an amazing book with such language that i had to pull out the dictionary at some points.

colum mccann is gifted with the ability to transport you between generations, between the underground world and the world topside...

i can't say enough about this book. i was going to give it to a dear friend at work, but can't part with my copy! i will have to go get her a copy so she can discover for herself what i've been going on about for weeks now!

*sigh* can't wait to pick it up again!!!!
