really liked it
Read from August 19 to 25, 2012

In just a couple hundred pages Miss Alther manages to convey the drama of dark and dismal events as well as the pathos of wasted and yearning lives. She talks honestly about the cultural tendencies that persist without rendering judgement. Oh sure she is clearly against murder in the middle of the night but you also learn by the end of the book that these people also reacted to changes in their world over which they seemed to have no control and many people in the world and undergoing changes in their lives that are just as profound and they are reacting in similarly irrational and violent ways. We really need for Christ to return! It is a tremendous book!
