Grief of not reading it

The book about tradition of families and how modern life today can take away everything in one single moment. The intricate pattern that Cohen made is absolutely worthy of reading it.

Pretentious Nothingness

The words have a lyrical quality about them, but you soon realize that the author is taken with words and not story. She has so little to say that she takes her time saying it. This is one of those novels which make you feel that it might be leading you somewhere since ...
The words have a lyrical quality about them, but you soon realize that the author is taken with words and not story. She has so little to say that she takes her time saying it. This is one of those novels which make you feel that it might be leading you somewhere since the words make such a pretty package, but, in the end, you are nowhere that you were not at the beginning. A waste of time.

    Nothing mindblowing but worth reading

    There's beauty in this book worth reading. I don't feel there's anything mind blowing and there's a lot of cliche' we all know, not much in the way of surprise. It is though another story about the intricacies of families and how we all hurt each other, love, hate and come to forgive each other if we can or cannot.

    Save yourself the "grief"

    Too many words to describe the utterly depressing life of this family. It felt like an eternity passed before I finished reading this book and I did so thinking it would get better - it did not.
