Bogdan Moldovan Moldovan from Kalmykia, Russia
good book. kinda humdrum tho
Really liked this book, much more than the first one on the series. Can't wait to read Physik!
Another beautiful, haunting and soulful novel by Ondaatje, this instance apply in the divided loyalties and civil war of his native Sri Lanka. The book was like a idealize - you have fleeting impressions of something beautiful but no real retrospection of specific details. The preprint report of the novel appeared in bookshelves towards the pull the plug of BMT and I had the pleasure of reading this along with two other bunkies who were Ondaatje air-cools.
I couldn't imagine anybody at all not liking this book. If the first few pages don't get you hooked, nobody will. And Laura Hillenbrand is a terrific story-teller.
