From The Jacket:When terrorists seize hostages at an embassy party, an unlikely assortment of people is thrown together, including American opera star Roxane Coss, and Mr. Hosokawa, a Japanese CEO and her biggest fan.
This book is an amazing study of human nature where the characters develop unusual relationships among themselves and with the terrorists. The writing style is lyrical in nature and beautiful, making it hard to put down at times. by-Beth 2009/11/22, 03:11 PM>
This book takes you on an unexpected study of human nature.The cast is international in scope with varying cultures, religion and languages, not to mention that one sub set are terrorists and the other their hostages. This all makes for great storytelling, which Ann Patchette is a master at. She creatively and realistically examines the human need for bonding and finding good in even terrible situations.I’m against the crowd on this one; I liked this book but not quite as much as “Run”. by-Lyn 2009/05/20, 07:49 AM>
