Read full description of the books:
Ah, I am torn between a 4 and a 5 for this exquisitely beautiful novel. I fear it has only scored a 4 from me, because I have lost the ability to truly fall into the warm pool of luscious descriptive prose and linger there longer than I should. So at times, I found myself skim reading - which was a terrible crime in the face of such beautifully crafted literature. So I would go back, and read it again properly. And now I have gone back and changed my 4 to a 5.
This book really takes the reader on a stunning journey, almost with the feel of a fairy tale, with strange and mystical characters whom you feel deeply connected, as if you know their own joys and sorrows. I could feel their breath catch, their pulse race, and sometimes, their heart's break - at different times throughout novel. I would have to describe Niall Williams as an Irish Alice Hoffman for me. His words paint pictures, that I have to close my eyes and envisage often as I am reading his books. Simply beautiful.
