A great story, told from multiple perspectives, about two women and their lives and families, unfolding in layers to tell a more complex tale.
I don’t normally read much non-genre fiction, but have had a recent hankering for it, perhaps as a welcome break from research. This one caught my eye and I decided to start it today on my day off.
I always think reading a book in one sitting is the highest praise one can have, and having polished this off in a handful of hours, I can confirm that this is fab summer reading, very stylish and terribly absorbing. I’m always drawn to books with multiple view points, and while I can’t comment on the numerous comparisons people have made between this and The Great Gatsby, it has at least encouraged me to read the latter next, another admirable trait!
