Bel Canto


Ann Patchett

Without hesitation, I recommend Bel Canto by Ann Patchett. I am nearly finished with it, and my heart aches wondering how it can possibly have a hopeful ending. Still, this book is phenomenal in how it takes a most negative scenario – terrorists versus hostages of multiple languages all stuck together in a house for months on end. It beautifully weaves  the commonality of human emotion and need with the unexpected and touching relationships that unfold between the array of characters.
