Anne Tyler shows an unusually refined eye for detail and abijity to convey atmosphere. Clock Winder somehow manages to feel inevitable and random simultaneously. Recommended for anyone who enjoys the mildly offbeat.

I personally enjoyed 'The Clock Winder'. It was a little slow, but the characters were real, quirky, and unpredictable. The ending for me, could say many things depending on ones' personal background.

Having read my way through almost every Anne Tyler book, I was very surprised with the lack of depth and humor as is customary with Ms. Tyler's works. I kept waiting for some huge correlation between the title and plot but found little, if any, to tie them together. Unfortunately this read was a disappointment.
