What did you think of the novel "Let the Great World Spin"?

I haven't read the whole thing. About finished the second book, so no spoilers please.

I hated the Irish brother who was a priest (couldn't remember exactly, it's been a long time since I touched the novel), I thought the only reason he helped the hookers was because it made him feel like a hero. And what an expensive way to go about feeling like a hero.

Thoughts?

I thought it had some really beautifully written passages and a very good ending. But overall it bored me and I thought it was trying too hard to be a great novel. I didn't think using the World Trade Center tightrope walker as some great connecting link/metaphor worked in any way.

I couldn't stand the priest character either.

The chapter that's all about the tightrope guy is kind of a dud, but I loved it otherwise.
