it was amazing
bookshelves: 2010

I had my doubts a couple of chapters into this novel, wondering how Colum McCann would pull together what seemed to be a bunch of vaguely related short character stories. But as he masterfully gave voice to each new character, I was drawn in more and more, and began to see how they were all connected, and to appreciate McCann's brilliance. I can say without a doubt that he does manage to pull off a feat nearly as amazing as the tightrope walker who serves as the backdrop. This is definitely going to land on my favorite book list this year.
