Assion social outrage and gift for hilarity that she showed in A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian Marina Lewycka chronicles their bumpy road trip with a tender affection for her downtrodden characters and their search for a taste of the good life. Magnificent Utterly charming relentlessly thought provoking delightfully fashioned The story of a rag tag company of immigrant strawberry pickers is told via a kaleidescope of tale tellers Each character including a mythically perfect dog named Dog has a distinctive voice and a strong world view Each character is flawed but each takes a turn narrating and showing the reader the world as he or she sees it It is a world full of happiness and beauty much loved side by side with horrific images of exploitation suffering and fear The characters all wish for Goethe s the best of all possible worlds and each tries to fashion such a world Despite some heavy subject matter the light hand of the author keeps the story flowing merrily along and there are tremendous moments of comedy

    I enjoyed this soapy novel about migrant workers in England But don't take that as a recommendation as this book would irritate uite a few of my GR friends Average friend rating is currently 225 plus two fairly positive reviews without star ratings Like this one Hmm I enjoyed it 4 stars much but would probably in a few months find myself embarrassed about the rating and remove or downgrade it so I'm just not adding one in the first place

    This book ticked a lot of boxes for me I loved itIt's not the easiest read owing to the mix of third person and first person points of view one of the first person POVs is that of a dog first canine perhaps?But it's certainly worth sticking to it because it allows the reader to get inside a number of heads and find out what makes them tick and see the world through their eyes through the filter of their knowledgeThis books plumbs the depth
