A novel by Tea Obreht.
This is listed as one of the ten best books of the year by the New York Times Book Review.
Maybe I just expected too much out of it, or maybe I'm not as intellectual a reader as the New York Times Book Review would like me to be.... but I disagree. It was a good book, but not that good.
That being said, this was an interesting story, sort of a cross between fantasy and reality.
Plus it has a cool cover.
