This didn't grab me as much as Mort did before- it was still an enjoyable read, but was more challenging. Death is a marvellous character, so surprisingly innocent but also sly and intelligent.
I really liked it. I had a difficult time with it at first and felt that it was going nowhere and then picked it up again and went nonstop. I also found reviews in the Saturday Review and the NYT. There is something hard for me to define that attracts me to Taylor's books. I almost always feel that there are redeeming features to every one of her characters if only I get to know them well enough. That aspect of her skill makes them more true to life for me. I loved the reconnection of Vesey and Harriet and found their relationship heartbreaking to read about. Taylor's ability to describe very mundane objects and situations casts a new light on things and situations that one normally would take for granted. She's never effusive.
