Just put it on hold! It sounds really good. I didn't read it too closely so that I can experience it for myself. :)

That sounds like an interesting book. Different. I like books with different structures. I loved the "Potato" book - the Guernsey . . .
because it was told in letters. I also love Jodi Picoult books because she will change whose point of view from which the story is told. Thanks for sharing!


This was my favorite sentence bit of your review: "like memory, the way you remember a relationship not by chronology but by seemingly-disconnected snippets of what ached and what buoyed." "What ached and what buoyed" - what an excellent way to put the memory of a relationship, for aren't all relationships full of aches and buoys of emotion. Beautiful!


It does sound interesting. Will add to my suggestion list for my book club... and maybe it will redeem the disappointment of this one http://www.amazon.com/Important-Artifacts-Personal-Collection-Including/dp/0374175306 which should have been *so good* but ended up being totally disappointing.
