Euphoria is close to the feeling I had after completing Lily King’s finely written novel by that title. I can’t think of an element that King didn’t get just right in this novel. Three main characters are introduced and developed with skill and their behavior at work and in relationship will resonate for most readers. The setting of these anthropologists living among the tribes in New Guinea comes alive through King’s lyrical prose. The plot moved quickly, and exposition was restrained to what was essential to create an integrated novel. King maintains all elements in a perfect balance. Readers who enjoy literary fiction will find much to like in this novel. Rating: Five-star (I love it) Click here to purchase Euphoria from amazon.com.
