I grabbed this book off the shelf when I saw under Caputo's name on the cover page, "Winner of the Pulitzer Prize". This is usually a pretty good indicator that the book will be a good read. On the way to the checkstand I began to get the idea that this PP was not for outstanding literary ability as a novelist, but rather as a political reporter.
Acts of Faith - is just that. An attempt to write a novel by a political reporter. Little or no real literary talent in evidence here. All conversations in the book are stilted and awkward.
There are some good passages in the book where interior and exterior landsacapes are described.
Mr. Caputo should stick to what he is good at - newspaper reporting.
