Beautiful and terrible., 10 May 2012
To be honest, I did find the style unusual at first, but after the first couple of pages, I was immersed in the story. The noting of mundane events makes sense as you read more of the book, and maybe remember things mentioned in passing before...There are snapshots of life on the street, some funny, some poignant and some tragic, and if you think you can see what happens in the end... you can't. Read it and weep, the images in this book will stay with me for a while; beautiful and terrible, life is richer for having read this.
