really liked it
Read in September, 2007

Reminded me of Saramago's Blindness at first -- a great tragedy occurs, and lots of folks stumbling about trying to make sense of it. And a very similarly poetic style of writing. Once the concept clicks in, it becomes a very meditative, romantic portrait of death. The thoughts it can provoke linger on long after reading.
