's review

it was amazing
bookshelves: audio, kenya-reading

I'm not sure I've ever read a book so perfect in tone. A book that says so much by saying so little. I expected the melancholy, but not the humor. And, ultimately, I think it is the humor that wins out. This is a staid, stoic, (profound?) celebration of life. Losses and regrets included.

In terms of structure and artistry, a nearly perfect book.
