six reactions to michael cunningham's 'specimen days'
1. it's no 'a home at the end of the world'
2. there wasn't a single sentence that knocked me sideways (his other books were full of them)
3. the first part was an annoying slog
4. the second part, thankfully, held my interest
5. the final part bored me
6. 'the hours' was a hell of a hard act to follow
