A subtle, compelling story
Moving, and somewhat haunting. The way the characters' lives connect and diverge over and over gives one that bittersweet sense that one gets at times of how far apart and yet how connected we all are, and how two people can see the same thing so differently. Leaves one "running to the store" to see what else the author has on offer.
Incredible Novel, Surprisingly Easy Read
The hype surrounding this book is so overwhelming I admit I was skeptical anything could live up to such fervor: it lived up to every last accolade and more. What is most surprising and delightful is how easy of a read it actually is, and not because it's at all simple but because Obreht is such a masterful writer; the only disappointment is turning the final page and realizing it's over. Fabulous characters, moving fiction... a truly remarkable novel.
The tigers wife
A great read that reminded me of everything is illuminated and the amazing adventures of kavalier and clay.
