really liked it
bookshelves: fiction

I picked this up as a harcover on sale for 5 bucks, read the flap and thought, ok, this might work...

Wow. It is such a great story written in such an easy, down to earth, everyman (but not, as youll soon see) tone....

The main character had severe head trama in the war at a young age, came home, had surgery, but lost the ability to speak, and write and sometimes has trouble reading. He is normal in every other sense of the word. Holds down a job, has a few close friends, manages to get by on his own until he gets the phone call....

You follow his struggles as a woman friend he secretly pines for goes to drug rehab and leaves him in charge of her tweenage son..... he must find ways to communicate with the kid, and the world around him.... its a love story, and a story about overcoming ones disability in the face of adversary....

please do your self a favor and read this one. Its amazing.
