This is one of the most beautifully woven stories in modern fiction. The way St. John Mandel weaves timelines and narratives is magical, her use of symbolism is smart. This is a captivating read and once you've finished it, and reflect back you also will see how smartly written it is.

When experienced homicide detective Casey Duncan first moved to the secret town of Rockton, she expected a safe haven for people like her, people running from their past misdeeds and past lives. She knew living in Rockton meant living off the grid completely: no cell phones, no Internet, no mail, very little electricity, and no way of getting in or out without the town council's approval. What she didn't expect is that Rockton comes with its own set of secrets and dangers.

Entertaining story - however narrator’s pronunciation of “toque” drove me nuts and that word is used surprisingly often throughout the novel.
