A Novel that Sweeps in like the Tide

A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki

We’ve all read books where the first thing we’ve wanted to do when we finished reading the last page was to start over again from the beginning. Ruth Ozeki’s latest novel “A Tale for the Time Being” is certainly one of those books; but it also isn’t one of those books. The reason for this is, while it is almost certain you will be enchanted by this novel, you might get the feeling that a second reading could change the way you were initially affected by the story. This is partially because you won’t be the same person you were when you first started reading. It may also be because the story itself will be different – either for you or that story itself will change. This might not make a whole lot of sense – at least not until you’ve read this book!

My complete review of this novel is now available only on my new blog here!
