I'm an outlier on this one. I didn't care about any of the characters, other than wishing for the few innocent to survive the cruelty inflicted upon them. I guess it's all about money and control and now and then.

Incredible cast of characters and local lingo that I wished I had the stamina to work thru.
Fascinating but i was simply overwhelmed and stopped half thru. I never did find out how that man got into and survived in the whale.

What a strange little book.

Moses Sweetland is an old man who has lived on a tiny island in the North Atlantic for all but a few months of his life. When the Canadian government wants to relocate everybody on the island to the mainland Moses resists and ultimately takes drastic steps to remain on the island.

We learn about all the quirky characters on the island of Sweetland, we learn about why Moses leads such a solitary life, and we learn his ultimate fate.

I really felt like I got to know the old coot and I'm glad to have spent the hours with him that I did.
