it was ok
Read in July, 2011

fine, but just ok. The writing was good, but felt strangely distanced from the characters and the book didn't hold together. It felt like a first book by someone who can write, but just hasn't written fiction yet or who maybe has written short stories but never a novel. i did like the inclusion of a japanese chicken sexer, which is always an interesting and fascinating bit of biology (that it's so hard to tell the sex of a chicken pre-appearance of an egg) and history (that one school in japan produced the world's chicken sexers). would have been good to have more about the chicken sexer and less plotless subsistence.
