Tara McDaniel, January 25, 2010 (view all comments by Tara McDaniel)
I had no interest in this book when I first saw it at the bookstore, and in fact picked it up and put it down, checked it out from the library later and couldn't read it and returned it, only to buy it again later on the advice of someone whose reading loves I shared. Turns out, I loved this book! It's a little bit weird, a little bit magical, a little bit slice of life. The narrative voice is incredible and I really liked what Egan did in terms of playing around with narrative conventions and frames. I was surprised and hooked all the way to the end. Really glad I decided to finally pick this one up for good.
