Being familiar with this author, I knew the writing in this book would be excellent and I thought the story sounded wonderful. As it turns out, I didn't fully appreciate this book until a few weeks after I finished it. It is dense and somber and occasionally slow and I struggled to stay with it at times. Yet I haven't stopped thinking about it since I finished it and have picked it up several times to re-read certain sections of it, enjoying it much more the second time around. It really is an excellent story and I would recommend it to anyone who appreciates strong literary writing.
