The only reason I didn’t cry—both in laughter and in sorrow—was because I finished the book in a food court. And I'm in a fairly happy-go-lucky state of mind these days. Were I anything less, I think I would be shattered on the floor (in the best possible way).
I was skeptical when friends claimed Alaska was even better than Abundance. But friends were right. I wish my five star rating had the power to express just how much I loved this book.
--Read again April 17, 2008... yes, two weeks later.
--And I'm reading it again in July. I just gave a copy to my friend Murray for her birthday, and finally bought my own copy. That's cause for a reread, right? Completed July 19, 2008
--And again, Aug. 26, 2009
--Yet again, Aug. 29, 2010
