's review

liked it

I enjoyed this book, but it's difficult to rate book one of two. The photography was interesting and worked in well. Though it would be just as good a story without. Some of Jacob's thoughts about his grandfather (the "a seventy year old hurt" passage in particular) were very poignant. Writing was a bit uneven with Jacob in some places sounding like an old soul and in others sounding like a bratty teenager. The end was a little "and then ... And then ... And then" and could have been tightened up a bit. I am looking forward to reading Hollow City. 3.5/5
