One of the most engrossing and excellent books I’ve read in the past decade.
Brilliant! Gilbert at her very best. Possibly her best writing to date. An epic by any measure- one that delights. I hated that it ended.
I can not properly write a review of this novel, which is a masterpiece:
It is truly four novels in one
My wish is those who admire brilliant writing, complex theories, people, and layers on layers of history, would read this story: it's breathtaking, heartbreaking, beautiful and thought provoking:
Rest in Peace the beautiful and talented, Miss Alma Whitaker
I did not know what to expect, but I just loved it. So well written.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. As an avid reader it was nice to read a book that had both length and depth to it.
Brilliant, intricate, intelligent story. Weaving art and heart and science in an easy voice. Important yet humble. Thank you to the author and all of the humble thinkers and writers that have come before and coexist now. More than 3 to be sure.
Gilbert has done it again. If she continues she will become if she isn't already my favorite author of all time. It is difficult finding books that maintain my attention, but she definitely has done so. Well done Liz!
