    An Interesting Read

    I was drawn to this book one day while walking through a book store. While I enjoyed the book, it wasn't what I was expecting. It is a sweet tale, told not only from the present but through flash backs and memories. It is a tale that at times had the power to wrap me up and made me forget where I was. However, I did have trouble with the writing style of the author. His prose was sweeping at times and had a wonderful rhythm, but the rhythm was hard to find at first. He relied so much on lists with comma, after comma, after comma that many times I had to go back a page and a half to remember what the previous thought was before he ran off on a descriptive tangent. After a while I grew accustomed to this method and enjoyed it very much at times, but it served as a roadblock preventing the story from sweeping me along with out a hitch. Another difficult thing was that at the start of the book, the time periods were often unfamiliar and I got lost in the time line of the story. Between jumping from the near past to the distant past to the present the author never really presented a good landmark by which the reader can grasp the time shifts taking place. But as I write this, maybe in fact that is a point of the story - that the 'present' is different at all times, that we live in many different 'present' moments every day. Over all I enjoyed the slightly surreal quality and the almost irreverent anger of Unica. Her story is filled with wonderful glimpses of what it must be like to grow old; and with wonderful characters that seemed real and alive. It is filled with small, short, sweet moments of touching love between Unica and each member of her life. In these moments the author brings so much subtle and understood life to his book - it is these moments that I was seeking when I picked up the book and it is these moments that I wanted more of when I finished the last page. In all a good book - a good story, with fun detail and prose. A story with a touch of the human element that makes the reader understand a little more about life.
