it was amazing

This is one of the best-written novels I've read this year. Fitzgerald's words are so perfectly honed, each sentence beautifully balanced and full of vivid imagery. The plot is languid, like the Samoan setting's air, inhaling in the past as Robert Louis Stevenson dies and exhaling in the now as Lewis comes to terms with his family's tragic past. Both sensory and sensual, this is a gorgeous piece of writing with a powerful sense of place.
