I liked the writer's style - using a diary to give one charater's point of view, some 3rd person narration and some narration by one of the main characters.
I found the characters interesting, how they interacted, their strengths and weaknesses and how each represented different perspectives of anthropology field work.
I am intrigued to learn more about the real Margaret Mead, Reo Fortune and Gregory Bateson.
The focus on the 3 white anglo characters means it lacks the perspective of the native people, but it is a short novel and can only do so much.
