3.5 Stars. Looking forward to seeing the movie. Book club book - what sticks out most now (read 1 month ago but reviewed 3 days ago) is similarity to East of Eden how does she get so rotten?

I will review after book club. The first time I heard of Louis Zamperini was years ago listening to WMBI. I remember why now. What an incredible story - so grateful...

Ps. He was most definitely broken, in my mind...

Libby just finished reading this to me. What a wonderful book. I cried like a baby as she read the last chapter.
Be kind. Period.
Oh, and find true beauty in people.... Not the kind that is fleeting or deceitful.

The Winter People by Jennifer McMahon
"I'm torn about rating this book. I absolutely blew through it--from start to finish in just about a day--both because the narrative is propulsive but also because I wanted to know what was going to happen.

“but for my own part, if a book is well written, I always find it too short.”
Jane Austen

Jennifer McMahon
“The world was full of dangers now that she was pregnant: mercury in tuna, hot tubs, beer, secondhand smoke, over-the-counter medicine. Not to mention crazy baby-abducting fairy kings.”
Jennifer McMahon, Don't Breathe a Word

Mark Twain
“What would men be without women? Scarce, sir...mighty scarce.”
Mark Twain

Téa Obreht
“When your fight has purpose—to free you from something, to interfere on the behalf of an innocent—it has a hope of finality. When the fight is about unraveling—when it is about your name, the places to which your blood is anchored, the attachment of your name to some landmark or event—there is nothing but hate, and the long, slow progression of people who feed on it and are fed it, meticulously, by the ones who come before them. Then the fight is endless, and comes in waves and waves, but always retains its capacity to surprise those who hope against it.”
Téa Obreht, The Tiger's Wife
