Miss Brookner has a very good hand at writing; it is clear from each paragraph that she can apply language in very detailed and orderly ways. This book is much like her others, focusing on loneliness, other's happiness over one's own, trying to move on or somewhere else. She has very mundane actions but to her characters they are momentous. Herz has given up his life, essentially, the making better of others. The next big thing is for him to move on and conquer his own wants. Although it is inconclusive if this is achieved, the reader feels Herz has overcome his sadness and made something happen. Miss Brookner is a fanastsitc write, though at times a bit dull, she hits many serious points on contemplation of one's life and role in it.
