An excellent story and real tear jerker. Easily would have been a 5 star, but the writing was so bizarre. I have no idea how to even describe it - often times some of the writing would go off on strange tangents that didn't even correlate to the dialogue or characters thoughts. The frame by frame photographs of a man jumping from the World Trade Center were disturbing.

**Movie starring Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock just finished filming. Will be interested to see how the screenplay is adapted from this book.
