Ricorda molto Rutherfurd, anche se non ha lo stesso respiro da epopea e manca della generale positività dei suoi finali. Molto bella la parte dell'India, anche se gli eventi storici vengono giusto tratteggiati. ( )

No Country opens in 1989, when an Indian-American couple is found murdered in their upstate New York home. Within pages, the novel shifts to introduce best friends Brendan and Padraig in 1840's Ireland. Through a series of events, Padraig is forced to leave behind his love, Brigid, and winds up headed for Calcutta on a ship chartered by the East India Trading Company. Brendan is unable to help Brigid survive the Great Famine, but manages to escape to America with Padraig's daughter in hopes of starting life anew. No Country traces the branches of Padraig's family as they grow outward from Ireland toward the United States and India, weaving forward through history toward the present.

From the beginning, Ray establishes the center of his story firmly in Brendan and Padraig. As children and decades tumble forward, each is connected to the pair through the questions they ask and the home they seek. Though the coincidental links between characters can feel like a stretch at times, the story is told on a grand, cinematic scale that makes anything seem possible.

The patchwork of the novel's cover is reflected in the historical events pieced together to form major marking points throughout the story, such as the Irish War of Independence and the Triangle Shirtwaist fire. Yet, the strength of No Country is in the moments between those landmark events.

A novel sprawling over 140 years, several generations, and three continents, providing a picture of everyday life in those various settings. The complexity of the lives of the various intriguing characters kept the book fresh although I must admit I lost some threads towards the end. As the title suggests, one theme is the dislocation caused by immigration. ( )

This is definitely a book that I recommend. At the beginning I didn't want to put it down. At the end I didn't want it to end. He descriptions of how imperialism effects the citizens of the countries, immigration, interpersonal relationships etc. I would love to give specifics but I don't think I could do justice. I will only say that I think this is a must read! ( )
