Another great read from a master story teller. GV creates mind pictures that stay with you long after you finish the book , like a good film running through your head. These characters become very real and there are no contrivances here. A very pleasant way to relax and escape.
This book was a major disappointment and I wonder at the selection of it as a GG award winner. It was passed on to me by my book buddy who feels exactly as I do - not a book we would recommend to anyone. She wanted to see if I disliked it as much as she did. We are both avid readers and love good Canadian fiction and - this book does not fit in that category.
