The American Sun & Wind Moving Picture Company by Jay Neugeboren

R- 2.5
(Copy received for review)

I have no idea how to rate this book.

It wasn't at all what I expected.

It wasn't really about the history of movies... and yet it kind of was.  Sort of.

It was beautifully tragic... and tragically beautiful.

In the end, it was a novel of broken people.  From the abused to the completely crazy.

And there is no resolution, really.  Just to warn you.

But it was utterly compelling.  I devoured the first 80 pages within a couple of hours of it arriving in the mail.  I don't usually start books right when they show up on my doorstep, since I have so many things to read, but this one sucked me right in.
