This book is told from four different view points. The first character and the last character would make for a compelling novella. The middle two characters are unlikeable and strident. It's almost as if a different and inferior author took on the two middle characters. I confess I don't even get the subplot obsession with angels. Skip it.

I've read or listened to other books by Chris Bohjalian and have enjoyed them. I didn't like any of the characters in this book and found its structure contrived and its narration annoying. I stopped listening about half way through. (I admit I grabbed a copy from the shelf at the Big National Book Store in my neighborhood and read the ending just to confirm it was going where I suspected. It was.) I don't recommend this book. Save your money and your credits and your ears.
