A Thread of Grace: Review
By mtibbets on Oct 11, 2005
My wife just finished up with A Thread of Grace for her bookclub so this weekend I got my chance to read it. Overall, this was a didisappointment. The potential for a great novel was there, but it suffered due to poor execution. Writing in the multi-character perspective is challenging for the best of writers, unfortunately Mary Doria Russell wasn't up to the challenge. The novel is very fragmented and choppy. I'm still a fan of the author and the concept was good, best of luck on the next one (I hope it doesn't take another 7 years).
