it was amazing
Read from February 10 to March 09, 2011

Loved it. A really sad story that explores how hard and unforgiving life can be. But also a story of perseverance and redemption. My favorite stories are the ones that don't attempt to sugarcoat life into happy endings and all turns out ok in the end. Sometimes the harsh reality is that things don't turn out ok, that life is often cruel and hard to make sense of. I appreciate the honest exploration of people confronted with that cruelty.

Amanda If you like stories about how hard and unforgiving life can be you should read "The Book Thief" if you haven't already. Really great book.
