Smarter minds than mine loved this book. A sort of stream of conscious narration of the life of a women in a small (Irish?) village. The book is often funny, and at times beautiful. The writing is excellent, with complex sentences that are perfectly structured, and the observances of the details of everyday life well done.
Still, it left me cold. A bit too clever. Good writing, even great writing just isn’t enough for me right now, and careful observations of the mundanities of life just aren’t going to cut it. Still if language is your thing, this book may be much more up your alley.
Recommended for the enthusiast.
