Not my favorite

I thought this story was a bit far fetched. Everyone was so successful and the brother sister story line was strange. Just found it hard to believe Adam and his friend would make it to the White House. I also didn't like that the story just skipped to the future in the prologue. Author should not have read the book. He had a monotone voice that got to be irritating.

Intriguing and complex

This complex novel explores themes of dignity, racism and rankism in a compelling narrative. The characters are compelling. However, the book leaves the reader wanting more upon deeper reflection as it never ties back the earlier theme of racism and taboo with the later theme of rankism and taboos to the overall theme of dignity. Also, Francois could have a larger role. All that said, you will fall in love Wiig this complicated family and the rich lessons they offer on dignity. Superb narration.
