An exceptional novel

A sad tale of suppressed emotions and misplaced priorities. One of the best books I've ever read.

A lot of sordid tripe

There is a reason that this book won awards

Timeless. beautifully written in a style which tells a story in itself. Haunting story. A rare thing to have the main character who tells the tale yet is not really likeable. Though I suspect that some will like him or feel a certain sympathy.
