    Story
    (47)

    In this superb novel - an Oprah Book Club selection - a woman re-creates her life after divorce by opening up her house to strangers and her heart to the simple miracle of possibility.

    Iris says: "Open House"
    "Ugh"
    Overall

    Melodramatic woman bores her husband into leaving her, and then spends the rest of the book attempting to bore the reader stone dead.
    If you've ever had a friend who can't live without a crisis and can't stop whinging about them, that's the tone of this book.
    Caveat emptor!

    Story

    From the Booker Prize-winning author of The Remains of the Day and When We Were Orphans, comes an unforgettable edge-of-your-seat mystery that is at once heartbreakingly tender and morally courageous about what it means to be human.

    Christopher says: "Moving, haunting, but slow developing"
    "Food for thought"
    Overall

    This novel is well-written and well-read, and as other reviewers have pointed out, it makes you think.

    The only difficulty I had was that I found it difficult to suspend disbelief and accept this alternate world. This is possibly because it's in the "Contemporary" category rather than Science Fiction where I think it ultimately belongs, but more, I couldn't square the real science and controversy behind this subject with the alternate reality. One only has to look at the political dust-up over mere stem cell research to see how ultimately unrealistic this story is in this setting; in this time period.

    But that is my only criticism.

    It is a good, solid story.
