I am over halfway and I am still hoping that something opens up in this dull story. So far though, the beautiful cover to the book is the best thing going for it. Outside of the first chapter, it is utterly void of suspense or tension. However, it's heavy on meaningless detail--Kevin and his preparation of supper, collecting and distribution of lamps in a storm. Ho-hum. Kessler, who leads us up to the threshold of several opportunites for suspense,instead dismisses them with a shrug. The premise has much potential, but Kessler fails to ignite. Not everybody is concerned with the jealous, silent rantings of a homosexual relation-ship. Kessler's only foreseeable strength so far is his lovely depictions of northern sunsets and bird-talk. Unless something is resurrected soon the lucky ones are the ones who died on the plane.

This book was engaging. The writing was beautiful prose, each chapter, a short story of its own, yet woven together to form a memorable, satisfying experience.
