I liked Boyle's technique of alternating points of view between the Mossbachers and the Rincons in each chapter - felt it was very effective. I also appreciated that he did not take a stance in his views, leaving it up to the reader to form his own conclusions. To that point, I felt that his deliberately crafted ending was perfect. This is a great candidate for a book club (I am setting forth it as a suggestion for mine) and should provoke quite a lively discussion of its many themes.
The protagonist, a liberal "tree-hugging" nature lover is sympathetic to the plight of those without rights or home, until a series of fateful encounters turn him. The adage "A Republican is a former Democrat who had been mugged," is explored in greater depth in this excellent novel.
