haven't finished reading it yet

by Elaine H on Feb 7, 2013

I have a graduate degree in Literature, and I read widely, including Proust. So--I read a book by this author 30 years ago, Terra Nostra, a mammoth work of history and fiction, and was mucho impressed!! My book group picked this one. I am about 1/3 through, and not all that impressed. I get the impressionistic style somewhat awkwardly joined to a range of philosophical issues/comments, enhanced by a literary story-telling skill that relies on the reader's abilities to organize subtle cues. I'll let you know what I think when I'm done reading it. Three stars for the first 1/3.
