Swimming Among Genres
I wish I could give several 'number grades' to this book for various aspects; 5 for character development and dialogue, 3 for plot development, etc.
While I thoroughly enjoyed the characters and felt the shifts among time and point of view were done well, it seemed as though some point were being missed, not the least of which was the guilty party of the seven year old murder mystery. Perhaps subtlety is wasted on me, but this missing piece was a big disappointment. I don't think stories have to be strictly categorized, but this book seemed to waver uncertainly among psychological thriller, murder mystery, romance and serious fiction.
I will still, however, look for more of this author's work. (Should probably be a 3.5)
