Euphoria

Interesting book, found the setting and background fascinating, wasn't particularly fond of the characters though. Good descriptions about tribes, locations, types of rituals and general information on anthropology. Not sure I would recommend this book, but it was a quick read and was on a topic I have never read about before and did find interesting. Ending was a surprise.

You Are Here: A Novel by Karin Lin-Greenberg
 
Difficult, Gloomy, Adventurous

Was not my cup of tea. I found it a bit depressing, I thought it was unfortunate that Ro was never understood, she was not able to give the gift she had planned, that she thought would make amends with her neighbor, and was just one of those people who had a habit of sticking her foot in her mouth. I think she was lonely, as were many of the characters in the book, and they were mostly unfulfilled. Although some of them were able to go on to a better ending, I thought it was a bit of a sad set of characters.
