really liked it
Read from July 14 to 18, 2012

this book is a story for people who like storytellers and how people's lives intertwine. it is also about grief and how a person, a family, a town deals w. it - or not. i happen to think there are defining moments in our lives that stay w. us and influence who we are long after they're over. they don't always have to be tragic but they always feel monumental. this book reminds you of that feeling. strongly. the writing it paced as if it were being told not just read, which i like, and while simple manages to impart a lot of complex undertones at the same time. what ain't spelled out is just as important as what is - which is also often true of life too.
