it was amazing
bookshelves: five-star, historical-fiction, monolithic, movie-material


I wasn't sure if I was ever going to finish this book, but am so glad I did and enjoyed it, especially the ending. I kept thinking torugh out, dont do it, but I want to now what happens if yu do. Will the world be a better place.

I enjoyed the era of pre JFK assasination USA, makes you wish you could be there, but not sure about Dallas?

I did not realise when I started this book, that it would be primarily a romance novel ... and what a romance it was. It just kept getting better and better all the way to the end.

And yes, true to any Stephen King novel, it was full of a sense of foreboding. That damn clown is always around somewhere.

Came away form this novel with a sense that I have gained something ... an appreciation of the here and now, the fragility and beauty of life ... and how 'life can turn on a dime'.

Kathryn Yay! You finished! The ending made me cry!

Dee-Ann Me too, but it was beautiful too. I could not believe it, I got to that point after 700 + pages and wanted a bit more ..

Kathryn I know what you mean! I still haven't gotten over this story. :)
