Lots of firsts with me and this book:
1. The longest book I've ever read (898 pages).
2. The most pages I've ever read in a day (300)
3. The first time I've literally had to put the book down and close my eyes so I didn't cry on it...

Books get to me, I admit it. And in the past year or so, I've read quite a few books that got to me...but nothing like this. Hands down, the best book I've ever read in my life. I could not stop reading.

So my friends and I always joke about how we read depressing books, and this book would fit in that category, yet I wasn't and am not depressed. In fact, I almost feel hopeful, as if there's hope for all of us. If Dominick can find happiness, who can't?

Kristen Wow! What a great review. You've made me want to read it now. And you've made me very proud that I gave you the book.
And 300 pages in one day? Shit!

Kristen I know, right, crazy. And you should be proud you gave me the book! It was awesome.

Stormbattereddragon great review, and yes, I agree that it is a book that gives me hope and comforts me greatly.
