it was amazing
bookshelves: favs

Clearly part of me felt a closeness to this book simply because it took place in my homeland - in fact, the title was the entire reason I chose to pick the book up in the first place. However, even given my major bias, Richard Ford did an incredible job crafting together a very complex, heart-breaking story. He told a very dark story while still managing not to make it too depressing or heavy.

I'm sure that this is probably a book that will speak to certain people while others will absolutely hate it but fortunately I belong to the first group of readers. I absolutely adored this novel and will definitely be checking out more Richard Ford.
