This novella is told with a storytelling style that I've always been fascinated by: completely separate and individual storylines that occur surrounding the same central event or idea. I enjoy it most when they each carry equal weight end up woven together into a cohesive plot at the end, though, and that didn't quite happen here (there's one central storyline, and all of the others are short, less well developed vignettes ultimately in the service of that central storyline). So that's definitely a minus.

It's very well written and yet still completely readable, though, and the characters all have individual voices, which carries a lot of weight for me. Three stars, then.
