Most of Anne Tyler's work seem to have little "action".This one is no exception, but that's not a bad thing. The main character in this book is almost an observer in his own life. There ae many points where he could make a definitive move, but he is somehow incapable. Instead, he complacently seems to accept what life hands him. I disagree with other reviewers who found the narrator lacking. His voice fit this character well and helped illustrate Noah's lack of curiosity about the world he lives in. The book was very engaging, perhaps becasue I deserately wanted this man to break free of his lassitude and make a bold move.

This is a subtle examination of the choices made (the roads taken and not taken) and the ramifications of those choices on others. Do we stay the course or just keep afloat -- and who do wear harm unknowingly in the process?
Perhaps because I am 61 the novel seemed so real and so true.
