want my money back !!
Horrible. So poorly written under the guise of "modern". Characters are 2 dimensional. Every relationship is happy, not great just happy.
You don't want to remember a soul !
Inserting 9/11 into the middle was a poor choice.
"jump into my arms"......capitalizing on tragedy.

Awed for Days
This compelling and exquisitely wrought novel from a National Book Award and Pen-Faulkner Award finalist at once luminous and discreet is Hugh Nissenson¹s masterpiece. At 67, Artie Rubin, author of illustrated books of mythology, finds his world shaken to its foundation. With breathtaking insight into the human condition and a delightful dry sense of humor, Nissenson finds the symbols, the language, and the wisdom to shed light on seemingly unfathomable aspects of all our lives. Even as it questions the meaning and purpose of life, The Days of Awe resonates on many levels, offering a story of heartbreak and hope, portraying the soul¹s endurance and confirming the fidelity of love, all while laying bare the myths of post-millennial America. An amazing read- I HIGHLY recommend it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
