Chango’s Beads and Two-Tone Shoes February 18, 2012

Is there a plot to this book? It doesn’t matter. When you write like Kennedy, you pull readers into the heartbeating pulse of your characters, so that living and breathing their very moments takes on meaning and complexity that doesn’t require a firmament of plot to stand on it’s own.
Passages in this novel sucked me in, until the wee hours of the morning. Other parts there were so many names and places, I didn’t know where I was, but the effect was a sensory wash – colors, sound, smells rising from pages thick with peoples’ lives.

You’ll want to read this one, and hang on through to the other side.
