that was misleading
airplane on the book cover
never in the book
I tried to come up with a haiku that had something to do with the book, but A LOT HAPPENS.
This book is wonderful, and it was recommended to me by a dear friend when I asked, years ago, on Facebook, for everyone’s favorite book. (It was possibly 7 years ago, which gives an accurate sense of how high my books-to-read piles have grown.)
It’s set in South Africa before apartheid, and it’s fascinating for the complex distinctions and definitions of races during that time and place. My only criticism would be that the protagonist is unbelievably guileless and faultless, but the story is so enjoyable that I didn’t mind.
