it was ok
Read in October, 2003

Much less powerful than the first book . . . but then again, how could it not be? The cancer stuff really makes the first book moving, and (kind of awful to say) it's just not as interesting without the life-or-death urgency of the cancer storyline. People who read the first book wanted more, but this book was a poor attempt at that. It was clearly written on a tight time scale and dealt with topics that couldn't possibly be as amazing as those in the first . . . everything in the book is, by necessity, a (less amazing) sequel - cancer survivorship, the subsequent tour wins, the move to Spain, the conception and birth of the twins, etc. The one topic that was really new - the marriage problems - was the hot issue in the Lance news at the time and was (understandably) scarcely dealt with. So you kept reading to find out whether there was going to be a happy ending in that department, and of course, you never got a satisfying answer.
