Journal Entry 1 by Torgin from Mülheim an der Ruhr, Nordrhein-Westfalen Germany on Sunday, February 28, 2010
A story about coming to age, about a love destined to fail and a paradise turning to hell. Against the background of the emerging civil war in Sri Lanka Gunesekera tells this story in a lyrical way which contrasts with the real political events. This was his first novel and still lacks the fascination Sandglass exercises on me, but it was a fine read anyway.
