review 1: A beautiful book. Starts off at a completely different tone to how it ends and moves into a strange dream like state that become increasingly emotionally engaging and feels almost surreal at times. I don't want to say anything about the story it's self as I don't feel I could do it justice and wouldn't want to give anything away. I take the previous criticism that the halves of the book feel quite different but did not find this distracting in any way. I would be interested in reading people's thoughts on the ending.
review 2: Really enjoyed the first half of the book. Owen as a boy visiting his grandparents farm in Wales, and learning about the animals and nature from his irascible grandfather. All beautifully depicted by the author. As an adult he moves to
... more a city, marries and has children. Then his life is changed forever when he has a car accident that kills a daughter and he loses a hand. The second half has more of a dream like quality, and was good reading, but disquieting. He takes his children on a long trek back to where he was raised. I'm not sure I understood the ending. less

I would have given this book 4 stars had the ending been less infuriating.
I've read this before but couldn't remember anything about it.
Thoroughly enjoyed quick read
