The Miracle of Small Things: A Review
I enjoyed this. The novel-in-stories format and Castillo-Oriard's writing style made it easy to progress through the book. The blurbs about Curacao were a nice touch, without detracting from the main narrative. I took a break from my usual routine to read the last 30 or so pages, which I suppose speaks for itself.
If there's a drawback, it's that it could have been a bit longer. If the characters had been portrayed more deeply, the reader might feel more connected to them.
I look forward to the author's next offering.
Note: To convert Celsius to Fahrenheit - multiply by 9, divide by 5, and add 32.
Rating: 4 of 5 stars.
