    Wow-Don't miss this

    This is one of THOSE books. A rugged story about strong people and hard times in a lonely and tough existence. Makes you wonder what you would do under extreme conditions in an extreme environment. I am reading it now. It is one of those books that you almost don't want to finish reading. Good for the soul!

    TC Boyle writes women well. The three women are much more complex than the men they are bound to on an island that seems at first desolate but is as rich in its own ecosystem as the women are in their interior lives. A beautiful narrative. Not as funny as some other Boyle novels, but a very good read.

    Excellent

    T.C. Boyle continues to amaze me with the variety of his novels. Each one is interesting and informative as well as entertaining. This novel is no exception. The tension of life on this isolated island and the people who inhabit it are very real.
