4.0 out of 5 stars beautiful, moving and unique, 3 Sept. 2012
This review is from: There but for the (Paperback)
THis is a beautiful book. I would strongly advise anyone to read it for its explorations of childhood, relationships, bereavement, old age, the nature of history. I am usually a sucker for a killer plot line, especially a romantic one! I kept willing there to be one, then realised halfway through that the book is better than that, more subtle. There IS a plot and there ARE relationships between all the characters but they are... smaller, but somehow more complex, more like real-life, and they are described in such a stunning and moving way, that by the end you have all the plot you need. It made me cry in the bath.
