Not for the miserable
I remembered that I loved this book the first time I read it, so it seemed time to read it again. The writing is exquisite. I love the rotating voices and how clearly each character's voice was separated from the others. The story is heartbreakingly beautiful and haunting. I had forgotten how difficult it was to realize how little thing have changed, or really, how much worse off we are, in terms of world politics. It ends on a hopeful note, but the state of today's world, I think, can no longer support that hope.
