those. If breaking the rules, reading literature, or being flummoxed for a bit isn't your cup of tea, do not, I repeat, do not read this book.
Atypical: If you want traditional, Do Not Go Near This Book.
Peculiar: Is the style of the writing.
Brilliant: Difficult to ascertain exactly what Doctorow is saying at times.
Rule Breaking: Grammar and punctuation, chapters, scenes - forget all the rules.
Lush: Adjectives and adverbs draw readers into the story.
Mesmerizing: Story moves swiftly through U. S. history: 1800s almost to new millennium
Researched: Well done and leaves you wanting to find out more about the Collyer brothers.
Creative: The End - a wonderful Aha! moment.
Historical Fiction at its most creative. If you take a chance and read it, let me know what you think.
