Yawn.<br/>It's not so much a family gathering as a gathering of the narrator's memories about her dead brother and a gathering of her grandmother's life. I usually like the eccentricity of Man Booker Prize winners, but this one did nothing for me. I liked none of the characters -- I didn't even dislike them strongly enough. There's some minor entertainment in contemplating a family as large as their's, but that's about it.<br/>Take a pass on this.
