I liked the colourful collection of characters and sense of place, which reminded me (a little) of Garrison Keillor (only minus lots of Lutherans and the Mid-West location). Not entirely convinced that the plot quite delivered in the end, but that didn’t spoil my enjoyment of it (and it's the only reason for giving it four stars, not five - would've given it 4.5 if I'd been able to). I also highly recommend "The Inelegant Universe" by the same author.
