When I picked up this little book I wrongly assumed I'd finish it in a day. And sure, it can be done, but there's so much depth and heart, I had to let it sit with me and digest it slowly. It's thoughtful and quiet with shades of 84 Charing Cross Road- maybe just because it's epistolary? - I can't be sure. It also it didn't hurt any that I love the Tollund Man and he is a catalyst for the story and continues to be mentioned throughout.
