I really wanted to like this book, because, you know, it's JCO. Who doesn't like her? The answer to that one is, me, apparently. Apparently I do not care for JCO. ( )

I did not enjoy this book at all - it was a struggle to finish. Most of the characters were very unlikable and the story was just not that interesting. ( )

Did not like this very much, honestly. The basic story was good, but I never came close to falling in love with the writing, and I was impatient with the characters - I didn't find them engaging. I'd love to read the same story as written by Francine Prose. ( )

Den intressanta berättelsen som skulle kunna öppna för många perspektiv försvinner i ordmassorna, där praktiskt taget allt skall med, på det där nästan maniska sättet som präglar Oates när hon inte kan hejda sig. Men jag ser fram emot nästa roman av Oates och hoppas att hon då är i bästa form.

“Little Bird of Heaven” starts with the urgency of a thriller, then turns into something more existential as the years (and pages) go by with no developments in the case. This is a tragedy on a classical scale.
