it was ok

I don't know, it's not that it was a bad book... I think I'm just mad because I'm never going to find someone who went through EXACTLY what I went through/am going through during and following the death of my own mother. There were parts I really identified with, but it just didn't grab me the way I thought it would. I guess it's different for everybody and nobody's going to write my story except for me.

Ed While I haven't read "The Mercy Papers" your review/comment ring completely true. No one else can experience either great joy or (especially) traumatic sorrow in the same way others do.

Although sometimes a writer is able to help us recreate some of the emotions of the time/event.
