Wriston Colbert can be a mesmerizing writer, building waves of description and pure emotion that carry the story. At times, the syntax of sentences dissolves entirely, and the prose nearly becomes stream-of-consciousness. The novel's attention to physical beauty or its lack borders on obsession -- this character is described as plain, that one fat, another beautiful but despairing. The women suffer, barely able to cope with the world; the men are passive and distant. Yet I found nearly all of them sympathetic.
I tend to judge a book in terms of whether its voice is original and gives me a new perspective. "Shark Girls" is more memorable and compassionate and compelling than many of the critically acclaimed books I've read this year.
