PS The first book by the author I read was called GREAT HOUSE (2010)
Plus: Loved the language. Beautiful, poetic quotes make this one a winner. The three narrators have three distinct styles of narration. Leo is detached, Alma is lively and Zvi is secretive. The book tugs at emotions with beautifully worded prose. Very realistic attempt as those in search for something in the book do not find it in the way they expect it to be found.
Minus: I did get a bit confused in-between because of three parallel storylines.
Verdict : I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good story. It is light, yet beautiful; tragic, yet memorable. The plot has the lightness of a good story and graveness of emotions in play throughout.
