really liked it
Read from December 23, 2010 to January 05, 2011

My first time reading Jon Hassler and what a joy it was. Before even reading comments of others I had decided that he was spot on with his characters and just as "in the real world" you love things about them and sometimes find things about them irritating. It gave one pause to realize how a casual comment, made without malice, a listener may interpret it as judgmental and not know that it is tempered with love and friendship. It was so interesting the way that Hassler was able to get the story to evolve and eventually get on with life and ease our minds as to the affect it had upon everyone involved........ truly like life really is.

I was inspired enough by this writing to immediately seek out another book by Hassler, just to see if I was right in my assessment of his ability to write with insight.
