The book is an absolute masterpiece. it's very wars, inspiring and touching.
The book perfectly portrays the bond between family (here granddaughter and grandpa), values, love and loss.
I like the author's style a lot - it's simple but in a good way - clear and pure - its important not to make the book too "cosy" and then dull. It's really hard to believe that this is Obreht's first novel! I'm really impressed.
