The Nook version of this title was absolutely FILLED with typos. It was absolutely ridiculous. Some of the typos were humorous (eg, "feces" instead of "faces"), but some were so egregious that I absolutely couldn't figure out what the word was supposed to be. I don't know if the print versions of this title are the same, but just beware if you purchase the Nook version. It's completely distracting.

    Hey, B and N!! I haven't read this....and it does look good, but probably won't because of the typos. I'm a retired English writing teacher who also has edited friends' books. If you'd like me to edit Nook books for you, I'd be delighted to do that! Please let me know.

    Stayed up all night!

    I stayed up all night reading this book. It is one of the better books I've read in quite a while. Mr. Eugenides's characters became very real to me. I particularly enjoyed Sabine's relationship with Phan, as she came to understand him after death.

    Presto!

    I adore this book! It is a wonderful story of a woman who defined herself by someone else and now needs to find her own idenitiy. The reader gets to follow her through her adventures as she struggles to find something to hold onto. It's one to read over and over and over....

    I read this book and learned to enjoy the slow and deliberate pace. Nothing moves quickly, which allows the reader to see and hear
    all that the writer wants us to see. A wonderful story, with a magical ending that one could not predict, but one that left me satisified.
    After reading this book, I raced to read Bel Canto, which was just as good.
