"Beautiful and unsettling," as one reviewer described "Golden Child?" How about: Depressing, meandering and rather pointless? I really don't grasp the accolades for Adam's debut novel. It's heartbreaking, because the one character who was sufficiently fleshed out is slowly destroyed from the inside out, then from the outside in. This isn't beautiful!

A Sophie's choice set in rural Trinidad; a book for readers who enjoy the writing of a novel, as Adam misses the opportunity to make any of our characters -- even poor Paul -- resonate. What a stunner this book could have been, touching on class, family, jealousy, and corruption, if we had only been able to better know the players.
