  1. Thanks for the review, Callum. Where is home; what is home? This question interests me, being a displaced person myself. But I think I’ll give this book a miss.

  2. Great review! I’m sorry that this one fell short in its execution. This novel reminds me of How Much of These Hills is Gold in its premise – which is funny because that novel also explored really interesting ideas but fell a bit short in execution!

  3. Ah, it’s too bad the format didn’t work better for you. This sounds like such an interesting look at different meanings of ‘home,’ and I love the idea of tackling some opposing sides to this theme while centering them all around the same setting (or two). Great review!
