review 1: This was a beautiful story. An oppressive government, a mute child, a missing mother, an illegal puppet show, and the attempt to make peace in an ugly world. I would share more but then the story would be ruined. The writing is simple and sparse. It is a sad novel but it is filled with broken people who wish only to connect with a not so distant past. There was a moment in the book where I had to stop reading for a few minutes because I knew what was about to happen and I wanted to hold onto the character for just a few moments longer. I managed to finish this in a single reading, not a long book at all but one that will stay with you for awhile. I am still thinking about the ending. Definitely worth finding.

... morehought in the back of their mind of one day writing one, should read this book. I didn't fully understand it, but Jesse Ball can write. I'm not big into poetry, so maybe that's why this book was so unusual to me, but reading it was like looking at a piece art that you longer you look at it, the more you notice and appreciate it. I found myself reading the same sentence over and over again because I appreciated the..rhythm? Metrical structure? I don't know what the word is, but it's pleasant to read. 4 stars instead of 5 due to personal taste, as it got more abstract I was less interested in the outcome. less

I'm on second read-through. this is a very good book.
unsatisfying, yet vaguely satisfying....
Less puppet show, more action.
triste y muy tierno
