really liked it
Read from August 08 to 12, 2012

I was really surprised as to how much I enjoyed this book. The story set up of basing it around 3 different characters, in different times and circumstances, made it all the more interesting. The characters were likable and I felt sympathy towards them, even though their decisions were not that great. I also loved the fact that the reader could see Charlie's perspective as he was growing up without his father. What I enjoyed most about Charlie was that he wasn't charmed by his father, but saw straight through him, even as a child. It was good to see his character development. Out of all the characters, I felt the most sorry for Joan. Joan was lonely and saw Ken as her last chance at being with someone due to her personal tragedy. The most emotional part of the story was when Joan had wanted children but was not able to, from then on the reader could see the difference in her character and her relationship going downhill. Those were my most enjoyable parts of the book, I reccomend it to wanting to read.
