really liked it
Read in January, 2003

** spoiler alert ** *Spoiler alert*...I debated between 4 and 5 stars on this one. I really loved reading this book, and I just wish it hadn't ended with a school shooting. Why is that such a popular plot twist in books and movies right now? Other than that, this was a very familiar, beautifully written and characterized look at an ordinary man and his very real relationships in a small town.

Leslie I'm a third of the way through the book and I just read your spoiler. Serves me right. :-)
