Recommended for: everybody
Read in July, 2009 — I own a copy , read count: 1

For the first half or so of this book, I thought it was "very interesting" and I enjoyed reading it. It slowly dawned on me just how beautiful and heartbreaking it is -- and exactly how appropriate the title is.

I scored this book at the book swap at Imi and Alex's not-wedding this summer, and far as I can tell, I won.

mickiegoc Cathers That's exactly how I felt when I read it. GGM turned me on totally to that genre, too. You're making me feel like I need to crack my version open again.

Sherrie Gingery very well put! I loved this book and found it both funny and poignant.
