This was a gripping book about family and self-discovery. I liked how Neil learned that while his father had flaws, he still had important lessons to impart. ( )

A largely unnoticed little gem. This is not the biggest or the greatest novel ever written but it's written with a sure and sympathetic eye, and spins a pretty good yarn. ( )
