A very fun book, it is hard to review without giving spoilers, which would indeed spoil. I would put it this way: if you enjoyed David Mitchell’s Cloud Atlas, this is a good next book to read. Not of the very highest depth, but smart enough to be more than mere entertainment. Here is the Amazon link. It was a runaway bestseller and Goncourt Prize winner in France, here is NYT coverage. It is the best “fun” book I have read in some time.
