I picked up _The Poet_ a few days ago, remembering what you'd said
about Connelly, Mario, and loved it. The plot is extremely compelling
- it was unputdownable - and there was something a little odd - flat,
maybe, but not in a bad way - about the narration that intrigued me.
I'm surprised to see others here couldn't even be bothered to finish
