it was a little too long for me; 500 pages and with most letters being about 5 pages long, it got to be too much. I thought it should have been cut in half and offered in 2 books, but I dont think anyone would have bothered with the second book. Some of the letters were very heart warming and emotional; some I TOTALLY related to, some I wasnt sure why they had submitted a letter at all.
