I had looked forward to this book being released in Kindle format but unfortunately this didn’t happen (as of this date, anyhow). A mixed blessing, perhaps, as the audio version is superb. Whether this is a fantasy or fictional novel is a debatable point but matters little as, what struck me the most, is the excellence of the writing.
The storyline is simple enough, concerning a family transplanted from “somewhere else” to the United States. It recounts the family’s impressions of everyday life in Reno, Nevada over many years, contrasting and comparing their own “foreign” traditions and beliefs with those of the ordinary people around them. The book is witty and thoughtful but not particularly judgemental; the latter being left to the reader’s discretion. A highly recommended read.
