it was amazing

This wonderful complex and intelligent book illustrates the difference between a quick pleasant read and a truly masterly novel with complicated characters, rich detail, philosophical and esoteric observations, a compelling background and history, and the sort of progression that emanates from the characters rather than from an imposed plot. Examples of the asides include a wealth of detail on marine biology (the profession of Humphrey Clark, the main character) and feminie studies (the area engaged in by the other main character Ailsa).
