My first Picano read - a fantastic epic.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Like People In History (Paperback)
Like People in History charts the life of two main characters from childhood to an inevitable end - spanning some 40 years or so.
The book has an epic feel and the story is told in incredible detail, without ever being over wordy. This gives the book a warm depth and texture.
While many books seem to suit particular atmospheres and occasions, Like People in History equally compliments an articficially heated afternoon in winter or a lazy day in the sun and never does it fail to engulf you in the richness of its interweaving tales.
The story is as emotionally touching as it is subtley humerous and however good the subject matter is you just cant help feeling that Picano's writing style would make you enjoy the book regardless. However, you are spoilt on both counts with Like People In History, as it seems you are with all Picano's books.
