"Overall, I was glad to read this book. I thought the writing was well done. The point of view, the slow reveal of details (much as in life) worked for me. Although it has sadness and tragic events, I still found it a gentle book for the most part."
"This was kind of middle-of-the-road in quality. The writing is mostly good, Banks is still a thoughtful guy, but the plot seemed kind of low key, and it seemed like half a book's worth of content."
