really liked it
Read from August 02 to 09, 2012

I really wish I was able give this 4.5 stars. I enjoyed it beginning to end. Although this book is based on an actual person, it wasn't a given that Willie would come across as real - but Moehringer really succeeded in making him feel authentic. There was nothing in this book that felt predictable, but there were also no surprises - save for one revealed late in the book that really added to the sincerity of the whole novel. This is one of the books that everyone around the office that has had a chance to read have acknowledged as one of the year's best so far. Looking forward to the success it will undoubtedly receive when it is released next month!

Jane So why couldn't you give it 5 stars?

Kristi I don't give out many 5s - would need to be a favourite of all time. As I said, I would have given 4.5 if possible, going with 4 instead as some parts felt a bit predictable ("there were no surprises")
