This book is indeed in the minor key as it takes place inside the head of one woman over the course of one night, but that doesn't mean it's not grand in ambition and quite beautiful. The whole point is to delve deeply into one family, to see all their loves, fears, and worries. Its truly about people, and, if you find people interesting, then this book is for you. If you want pure plot or something like that, then maybe its not going to be for you. This is ALL character (and the narrator captures the emotional expression of the book quite well).
Really, this one is not meant to be large and epic but that does not mean it does not have heart and emotion and beauty. It's quiet symphony is a great accomplishment.
