Hard to say which is more depressing: reading this book or seeing a beloved household pet get run over by a car.

The Hartford Courant calls this book "A Triumph". A triumph over what? Joy? Happiness? A direct quote from the book: "I haven't yet let myself feel how grateful I am to be back in my own bed, but I know it's coming. And I know I'd better get ready. Because feeling good will feel awful."

The writing was fine, the sentiments expressed intelligently, but for crying out loud!

--Literally! For crying out loud!

Darcie Dude. All of her stuff is like this. DEPRESSING. Just say no, Crisfield. It may mean that our book choices are frowned upon by others, but I don't care.

Susan Okay, but they should put a warning label on hers. I skipped the middle 2/3rds of the book, simply out of self preservation.
