I’ve heard and read about this novel in a few places and had been keeping half an eye out for it as I scanned library and bookstore shelves. I spotted it on my most recent trip to the Library and thought this might be the time to give it a read. It is a story about a teacher on a tropical island who reads his way through Great Expectations with his class as a distraction from a war.

The novel lived up to, and exceeded my expectations. This is a fine work.
