Why did you read this book?: It won the Booker Prize.
Has Beckie read it?: Yes, she finished it first. Note: we bought the book twice, because I bought it for the Nook but haven’t been able to get the Nook program to work on my MacBook Air here in Australia, so I bought it again for Kindle.
42 Word Review: 1860s New Zealand. Bursting with plot and period details from the get-go. Was already loving it when halfway through I finally understood how the astrology part worked and I was over the moon after that. Brilliant idea for structure of long novel.
