The Pickup

By Nadine Gordimer

It took me a while to get used to the writing - it was hard at first to tell where someone is saying something versus general narration, but with time I managed to be quite engaged in it.  It was interesting to see the characters develop, and the ending was not disappointing, which it could have been in so many different ways, considering the topic (the love between an illegal immigrant and a rebelious daughter of the upper middle class). I guess I quite enjoyed it all in all. Still, when I saw another book of the same author on the library shelf, I did not pick it up. Maybe I needed some rest... [288 pp.]
