To the End of the LandTo the End of the Land by David Grossman
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This book takes a very worthy story as its subject and the novelist is a serious and assiduous one, with the ability to capture the essences of things. He can write beautifully and he can write heart-breakingly. He thinks deeply about character and consequences.

However, the book was marred by pretentiousness. The novelist also spent far too long on details of no importance. If I were his editor (LOL!) I would have cut the book by at least half. In a day! (Because the decisions are so easy.)

It makes me feel very shallow to write this. Never mind. I must press on because I have some really good erotic novels to review.

Vanessa Wu is the author of Love Has No Limits
