my take: This is an odd, but good, little book. I admit that I liked it better after I found out our President has read it…

“Winner of the Man Booker Prize” is something that catches my eye and my interest … and such winners are often a bit odd. Those British like to go for something a bit different.

This story has scant beginnings … a relationship that didn’t go very well. Through the narrator we get the sense that she was a bit strange. He tells of his childhood friends and how they kind of fell apart. No great endings.

… Until many years pass and old things are brought into a new light. An interesting reflection on relationships, assumptions, and evaluating one’s life.
