Loving this book so far. After reading a couple of other books with the theme of "slow down, stop working your life away, get your zen on", I found this on Amazon and it was just what I needed. As I'm developing my own business and finally DOING IT, I needed this 'guide' to zen and peace of mind in LIFE and in business. I have no doubt I will finish this during the week and get all of her other books. Every page is chock full of great tidbits and thinking points.....
I liked it better than White Teeth.
I did enjoy reading this book even though its main character is rather sullen. It does fit into the drawn-out narratives about introverts with failing relationships category but is redeemed by its sharp insights and writing. Flora returns to Darwin, the New England town where he father taught after his death, where she has been made her father's literary executor. She takes on the role reluctantly and over the course of the book you realize why. On factor being the poems he wrote about a lover she didn't knew he had.
