really liked it

This award-winning novel with its multiple layers of character interactions proves that modern authors using modern techniques can create entertaining literary fiction. I read this book over several days and stayed awake during a transpacific flight just to finish it. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because of the numbers of different characters whose interactions over generations I had trouble following.
