I really felt this story. The theme of family responsibility and how to share it is a theme shared throughout many cultures. The characters were intriguing and there were enough twists to keep it interesting.

I really enjoyed this completely different novel. I found myself stopping to think often while reading this. The end didn't disappoint either. Martel's sense of humor that was smart and funny. A great read.

Ms. Proulx has a very sparse writing style that takes some time to adjust to, but well worth the effort. The book was different and enjoyable with characters that are memorable.

My 6'th grade daughter does not like to read so I was trying to find something timely that she could identify with. This book is wonderfully contemporary. It was so great to see my daughter enjoy what she was reading and look forward to the follow-up book, "Thirteen".
