The main characters were very well described, their strengths, weaknesses,hopes and struggles fully revealed and explored. The story resonated with truth. The prose was spare but elegant, and well suited to the setting.
I didn't enjoy the raspy voice of the narrator, but think it suited the book.
I appreciated the historical perspective, especially the references to the early explorations and plans of the Smithsonian. As a native Washingtonian, I spent many hours in the Natural History Museum, and am grateful for the foresight and risks the early curators took to preserve an essential part of our country's history.
