Read from April 20 to May 28, 2011

Originally I couldn't get past page 56. I put this book aside for almost a month. At some point I became determined to see it through and got past the first 100 pages when something unbelievable happened...I became so wrapped up in the story and it's characters, that I couldn't put the book down. The story/ies are told in great detail and the characters and culture was so hard to relate to, but in the end I found myself relating to them on some level. The book even had me in tears in many parts. Definitely amazing writing and storytelling. I have to read the next one. I have to know what the future holds for the family.
