I was really interested in the themes that Gilbert was exploring, and there were several that ran together to form one sweeping novel. However, I felt the book was tedious. There was an awful lot of narration and at some points I really wasn't interested in what happened to the characters. I pushed through it because I rarely opt to not finish a book, but it was boring at times.
I was so moved by this elegantly told love story. The relationships are complex and each character's story is unique but completely accessible and relatable. From losing a loved one to finding stability among chaos, the story touches the most basic human experiences...love and loss and the beauty and fear behind both. The performers that brought each character to life were equally brilliant. Wonderful.
