5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful tale told wonderfully!, 5 Sept. 2013
This review is from: TransAtlantic (Hardcover)
Simply the best of this year's exceptional Man Booker Long List of the 10 that I have read thus far. The style and communicativeness of McCann's Transatlantic is sumptuous and enchanting; and the story is magnificent and consuming. Told through the fascinating experiences and insightful perceptions of a line of, we soon learn, strong family members and significant figures, all who have excelled by and through crossings of the Atlantic during the past 100 years. Complexity and simplicity intertwine to both dare and surprise the reader of these linked tales, which make up this truly sublime novel. My absolute favourite line in the book is: `We have to admire the world for not ending on us.' - truly moving, truly sublime. I thoroughly recommend McCann's Transatlantic.
