This is one fo the few books on this earth that made me cry. The messages contained in the book really hit home to me. A must-read.

Well it wasn't the best book but i like reading and i think you should give it a go even if it isn't the best book

I didn't particularly care for either of the main characters, so while I do love to swim, this book just didn't appeal a lot to me.
