The combination of the familiar made unfamiliar (the United States has been divided, wait, maybe that isn't so unfamiliar, but I digress) with a very good plot and some humor mixed in makes this a book well worth reading for readers of drama, thrillers, scifi, and even fantasy.
Reviewed from a copy made available by the publisher via LibraryThing.
While it would seem that the combination of all of these elements into one novel would create a mess, Leao seamlessly connects the stories of many main characters including their histories and motives. This novel is full of suspense, beautiful figurative language and pop culture references that will evoke laughter and discussion amongst readers.
I plead with readers to give inside a broken clock: a modern fable a chance because it is a wondrous read and anyone who loves modern fiction will devour this book!. The book is subtitled a modern fable, but it should be subtitled: A Modern Classic. This book is an intelligent, brave, unworldly masterwork that all readers and writers of contemporary fiction should immerse themselves in! I can't wait to see what else the promising talent of Mr. Leao has in store. Words cannot describe how much I loved this book!! (less)
