The Hundred-Year House by Rebecca Makkai
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I am going to need to read this book again. It is a complex series of interconnections and transformations and now that I finished it and know how it began I want to read the ending again. Yes, that seems backwards, but it is how this excellent novel is constructed we start with a story set in 1999 and then we go back in 2 distinct jumps to previous periods in the house's history. The story is intriguing, the characters well-drawn, and the structure brilliant.
This is my contribution to the October Books You Loved Link Up.
It also counts toward the What's in a Name 7 challenge as a book with a reference to time in the title.
