it was amazing

Read in April, 2009

This is a book of many things. It is a story of sorrow; It is a story of joy. It is a story of tears; It is a story of laughter, of promise, of lies, of life, of death, of holding on and of letting go, of beauty, of ugliness, of black, of white and of gray.

It is one of the best books I've ever read and it is one wherein, while I'm glad I read it, I'm also torn in that I am sorry I did so because it is destined to haunt me for a long, long time.

There are many reviews posted here on our 75 book challenge site, many of which are excellent and thus, I call your attention to those.

This is a book about the power of words and it has left me speechless
