really liked it

I was a bit surprised to see that this book is newer than Crow Lake, because the writing didn't feel quite as polished. Much like Crow Lake, though, the author excels at writing emotions... and it almost hurts the book because they feel so similar, that you can't help but compare them and find The Other Side of the Bridge to be the lesser of the two. It failed to grab me in quite the same way as Crow Lake and that could be equal parts less sympathetic characters (I found many of them to be flat, which was a shame after the excellent characters in Crow Lake) and just me not being able to relate to them in quite the same way. I also felt like there were a number of plot threads that went nowhere. But it was still an interesting read even if it didn't grip me and keep me up. A solid 3.5 stars.
