I love the way Doerr constructs not only the storyline but the moral of this multi character and multi time period tale. From war torn Constantinople in the 15th century, 20th century Midwest America and the not so distant future all linked by a Greek play the Birds by Aristophanes from 2400 years ago. Magical and yet starkly real in its warnings for humanity. ~ Reviewed by Maeve Noonan
