it was amazing
bookshelves: fiction
Read in February, 2008

Had this one on the shelf for years and was slightly put off after having read the Songlines and finding it a bit drawn out and mystifying.This book however is totally different in every way.Although the subject matter may not be appealing at first the attention to detail and the emotions of the characters draw you in so completely I could not put it down.I'm not a fast reader by some standards but this was one of the only books I've read cover to cover in two sittings its that good(to me).As a debut novel its astounding and I don't think he ever came close again to this level of story telling.
