Review

Little, Big is an epic and sentimental generational tale about a magical family living in the obscure, rural countryside of America during the early 20th century. Acting as a genealogy, but written in smooth and poetic prose, the tale envelops parallel words and the atmosphere is magical, but domestic. There are many characters, but each is distinct and detailed and the plot is not hard to follow by any means, even though it spans a long period of time. While definitely classifiable as fantasy, Little, Big deals with themes and issues integral to any human life: love, loss, and what it means to be part of a family.
