a wonderful book

My book club read this and I loved it. It's a gorgeous book. I had recently seen Man on a Wire, a film about a tightrope walk between the twin towers, and it very much helped my reading experience, as the book is sewed together with this event. I liked the characters, the writing style, the description, and the various human experiences. Highly recommended.

Raw but great reading!

Although the storyline is often raw, the storytelling in this book is fantastic. I've recommended to others!
