When we first had to read The Unquiet Earth in school i was pretty grossed out because i was told it was a love story between two cousins. But as i kept reading i completley forgot they were related and i realized that there was a lot more to the story. The Unquiet Earth is a great story with many different narrators. i couldn't put the book down...it was sweet, romantic, sad, funny....it was just a great book. I'd reccomend it to anybody.

It has love, hate, pain, healing, friendship, family, history, social concerns - all the elements of a great story. I picked this book up to read on a cross country flight and absolutely could not put it down. The best impulse buy I've made in a long while.
