I didn’t think I would like this story. The sparse language and the two main characters had little appeal to me as I started, and yet I got caught up in the story of Four (the boss of the road building) and Nine (his ne’er do well assistant). Set in an unnamed country after a civil war, the two are part of a road building team required to finish a highway in time for a presidential parade. The ending caught me off guard, and I still think about its meaning.
