This novel is spectacular. I was engrossed in it and truly enjoyed every minute. I didn't feel like any word or page was wasted in writing this book; every line played a part in explaining the circumstances behind the protaganists' troubled marriage. The reasons were very complicated, and implicated an entire nation, so it wasn't the typical "our marriage is falling apart" tome. Ms. Roffey brought to light an aspect of colonial history in Trinidad that I am sure not many Americans are aware of. The main character's obsession with a Trinidadian politican plays a central role in the story, and her disgruntled attitude toward her adopted homeland ultimately ends up in violence (the very violence she despises). This would be a fantastic selection for a reader or book club who really wants to think about highly developed characters and circumstances around human behavior.
