At first I thought this book was a little too post-modern for my tastes, but it ended up winning me over. Sampirisi is a talented writer and is able to capture a lot of emotion with minimal words/effort. The book really draws you in.

I found this to be a difficult book to get through and couldn't finish because the characters feelings get in the way of the plot, but I think I will try it out one more time. The subject matter is the kind that draws you into the book and holds you there.

very good
