over how good this book was.
I read it this summer, and I love, love, loved it.
Loved the writing, loved the characters, loved the plot. Genius, to be sure. After reading this, I do believe I will rise up to be Ann Patchett in my next life. (But only if I’m very, very good in this one.)
It’s a beautiful mesh of plot and style. You should read it, too, and let me know what you think.
(Bonus: it will help you kill some time before Downton Abbey starts up again.)
