Migliore dell'ultimo Yehoshua ma purtroppo del primo Yehoshua è rimasto ben poco. Il narratore si è perso durante la malattia della moglie e dopo la sua morte e non è più arrivato ai livelli de "L'amante" o di "Cinque stagioni". Peccato.
Resta comunque un auotre da leggere almeno una volta.

Il suo fascino avvolgente sta anche nel procedere con estrema lentezza: chi non è disposto a lasciargli i suoi tempi forse è meglio che ne stia alla larga.… (mais)
