This amazing book blew the roof off the house, and made other pretenders look like amateurs.
Diaz has huge ambition, and he delivers with every page. Upon finishing this sprawling, inventive, tour de force, I was not once bit surprised to find that it had won the 2008 Pulitzer Prize.
Do not be put off by some of the absurd and ridiculous comments posing as review. Some people shouldn't write about things they don't understand.
Strap yourself in and get ready for a ride with a master behind the wheel.
Truly, this is offensive garbage.
If you like inane drivel, if you relish pointless inquiry into Swedish family lore, if you enjoy sadistic violence against women with no thematic point, if you applaud when the "bad guy" actually gushes his evil plan to the waiting hero (!) . . . then you might just like this book.
Pity those who give this book a positive review, they know not literature.
