4.0 out of 5 stars A moving portrait of a Czech family, 11 Jan. 2002
This review is from: No Saints or Angels (Hardcover)
No Saints or Angels is a portrait of Kristyna, a Czech dentist, and her relationship with Jana, her daughter, her ex husband, her father and her new lover. This may sound mundane, but the book is emotionally compelling and the story wholly believable. But the story takes second place to the description and development of the relationships between the characters.
Klima is superb at generating sympathy for the characters and has created 'people' who will live on in my memory. I want to know what happens next and how their lives work out - and this is pretty unusual for me. As always with Klima, the evocation of Prague is exquisite.
Klima has written some books that have disappointed before, such as 'Love and Garbage' and 'My Golden Trades', but this - in contrast - is truly excellent and I recommend it highly.
