A family epic that spans generations, Bridge of Clay is a profound a poignant tale following the Dunbar family as they form, fall apart and find each other again. Told in Zusakâ??s trademark poetic style, the novel explores the delicate and at times excruciating mystery that is brotherhood.

This was a meandering story that for most of the book I wasn't sure I even liked it. But the last 1/4 of the book made it worth the read. I listened to this as an audio book and probably would have put the book down and not finished it. I don't know if I would recommend it .

 
  "the bridge of clay" by Carolynr (see profile) 04/13/19

could even be a 2.5 Certainly don't get the 4 and 5 star reviews and REALLY don't get that its classified as YA fiction. I can't imagine a young reader getting past 100 pages. This is a patchwork of pieces of this family that you have to work really really hard to follow. too hard for me. Which is a shame because the basic components of the story are good. Sorry

I feel like the author wrote in a confusing way shifting back and forth in time and using confusing language. May be because he’s a German-born writer living in Australia and ideas are lost on the American brain? Some of the storyline could have been developed more and other parts left out all together (like all the running scenes with the Clay). It’s just a middle-of-the-road book in my opinion. Not great, not awful.
