Another cringer. Reservation Road tells the story of unraveling. The story centers around a horrible accident occurring and the two men directly involved and subsequently their families. How do people emotionally handle tragedy and what happens if they don't? That's the most interesting part of this book, the surprising ways the characters move about and don't do the right thing. It's their tragedy is it not?

I enjoyed this book up until the end. I found the ending a huge let down from the overall suspense of the book. The author dragged us through all kinds of uncomfortable emotional territory to dump us here?

When I finished this book, I immediately thought it would be a great movie and lo and behold it was made into one in 2007. I watched it and even chock full of my faves it sucked and completely changed the story.
