it was amazing
Recommended to Christie by: Robert
Recommended for: EVERYONE
Read in November, 2008 , read count: 1

Everyone: read this book. I feel so blessed and sick at the same time. Blessed for where I live. Sick for the ignorance that's been mine. How many people are suffering every day while I go about my life? As a parent I was struck by the idea of having to sacrifice your life just so that your child could have water. It's humbling. This is one of the best books that I have read. My next step is to learn more about the conflict in Sarajevo.

SPOILER HERE ----> How amazing is the humanity in each person. How amazing the stories of people who rise above. How amazing was this perfect book?

Robert you are already past your deadline...

Christie I need an extension. Talk about past your deadline... who still has The Handmaid's Tale? HMMM?

Robert I however, was never given a deadline... while you I am afraid... were. Oh how nice it would be to bond as siblings through the discussion of this piece of work... but alas.

Robert Thorpe Read 'the book thief' - have a glass of water by your side and sit quietly in the shade. It will create those same moments of consciousness that Galloway explores.
