I got more than I bargained for, I bought this book on a lark to be entertained and amused, which was achieved. But I also learned new things, I was reminded about the human condition in all it's grim reality, and was left with humor and hope. A totally an fulfilling read.
Not for children.
Great, really great book. Building tension, inner strain, could not read it fast enough. Now sorry it's done. Don't miss this one.
Excellent WWII book, 2 sisters, 2 paths. each story is perfectly balanced. each life has meaning. very well narrated, Simply excellent.
Yes, it's unusual; no, there is very little action; yes, it's very cerebral. I loved it, it reminded me of the magical thinking of childhood and I, too, love Ari. Thanks for a little bit more of her world.
This book is quiet in an "English" way, like Harold himself, but compelling and heartfelt. Speaks to the human spirit and leaves one with hope. Worth the credit.
The book is so well written you get lost in the language. I found the story wonderful, fun and tragic; engaging. How can you not like mirror twins, an OCD victim, ghosts and ancient cemeteries? It wreaks gothic!
