This book was a delight because of the beautifully observed details that seamlessly transported this reader into the story of two twins growing up in a missionary hospital in Addis Ababa. It reads somewhat nostalgically like a big, old-fashioned John Irving narrative with the entire world at its feet. I almost literally could not put it down. I read until 3 AM and most of the next day barely coming up for air so that I could toss peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches at my poor kids. When I got to the last page, I was satisfied at the goofy, almost-mythic ending. Given that experience, it seems rather churlish to point out that although the book is a wonderful read, a few of the characters were drawn with broad brushstrokes and were never fully animated for me and there are moments when the plotting seemed to have been shaped with a sledge hammer. But hey, how many novels can keep me up reading until 3 AM anymore?
