A Great Read

by Barbara B on Sep 11, 2014

I loved this book. The first half was hard reading, but I persevered. The last half of the book flew by with great charm. It finished with a stunning shock.


Thought-provoking and a great read

by xenodad on Apr 11, 2013

This book has two narrators who are very different yet have much in common as their lives come together and intertwine. Philosophy becomes reality, as both are unwilling to live without the masks they have chosen. Unmasking takes place in unexpected ways. A great read, and a great book for discussion.


through the looking glass

by bookdiva on Oct 20, 2011

The simply beautiful story people made me feel like I was walking through the Looking Glass and seeing some corners of myself, and viewing beautiful people that I will always remember. Witty, touching, warm and loving. I will read it again. . . and again.


Title is slightly deceiving

by culnanfort on Jul 10, 2010

beautifully written story of two completely different yet oh so alike individuals!


Elegantly written!

by bibliophile06 on May 20, 2010

This very beautifully written book is full of gems of wisdom and insight. I found myself underlining whole passages every few pages. It's a bit philosophical and the vocabulary is occasionally above the average reader's level, but it's well worth the effort to read to the end. The main characters change and grow to discover that life does have meaning and purpose.
