I found this book to be an enjoyable read, but also very interesting from a craft perspective. Karen Thompson Walker is able to intimately acquaint you with her characters in just a few short paragraphs. Pulling off a large cast without making the narrative seem cluttered isn't easy, but each figure feels essential to the bigger picture.

The profound impact of fear upon human beings is at the core of this book, and watching how each character navigates this feeling in the past and present is fascinating. They rise and fall and rise again, showing their unique capacities for resilience.
