Recommended for: those who are brave and interested

Unlike any book I've read. Pavic begins with an interesting and straight-forward account of a son seeking his father. Then he splits his book into several narratives, weaving among them as he chooses.

The most amazing aspect of this book is that it's structured like a crossword puzzle. You can read the book cover-to-cover in the usual way, or you can skip ahead and read the chapters that all pertain to one narrative. Great prose and good story. I ended up finishing this book after the class I read it in had ended; it was too good to give up on.
