tsunami

a wonderful book

by tsunami on Apr 12, 2012

My book club read this and I loved it. It's a gorgeous book. I had recently seen Man on a Wire, a film about a tightrope walk between the twin towers, and it very much helped my reading experience, as the book is sewed together with this event. I liked the characters, the writing style, the description, and the various human experiences. Highly recommended.
