Would also make sense if the chapters were read in reverse order. The book feels like it starts at the ending. Deceivingly simple. I was able to keep the characters straight in my head mostly although there is some intricate weaving of characters over a long time-span. It's quite a long read and can get a little vague in some places where chapters are really jumping around but it all feels intentional as part of the story.
An incredibly lush, dense, breathtaking book - like a movie rolling out in front of your eyes. Jumping from the 1950's to the 1990's - more characters than you can really keep up with without drawing out a 6 degrees of separation map to guide you... Sad and poignant and hopeful... An amazing read!
