Rare, spare and fascinating,
This review is from: The Buddha in the Attic (Kindle Edition)
A beautiful novel, each word is exquisite.
The unusual use of the collective voice is moving and allows the author to create many stories in what is a very short novel. You could read it one sitting.
I found the glimpses of parting from mothers, babies, grown children very touching.
Like the book, the characters seemed delicate, but were strong. The characters seem unquestioning, but through their voices the author makes her point very firmly.
