Boys in the Trees is a great way to fall asleep.. I'm sure there was a lot that went into writing this, but that hardly warrants a good review or a good read. Muddling through the book left me wondering if her editor at least made basic suggestions l ...more

"I can't tell if I don't like memoirs, or if I've just had a bad run of them, but I did not enjoy this book. It should be called Fortunate Woman Feels Sorry for Herself. Simon portrays herself as a victim most the time but clearly doesn't make grea..." Read more of this review »

It's ok. Semi-compelling but repetitive.

Nicholas Wolterstorff
“Why are the photographs of him as a little boy so incredibly hard to look at? Something is over. Now instead of those shiny moments being things we can share together in delighted memories, I, the survivor, have to bear them alone. So it is with all the memories of him. They all lead into blackness. All I can do is remember him, I cannot experience him. Nothing new can happen between us.”
Nicholas Wolterstorff, Lament for a Son

Nicholas Wolterstorff
“Will my eyes adjust to this darkness? Will I find you in the dark – not in the streaks of light which remain, but in the darkness? Has anyone ever found you there? Did they love what they saw? Did they see love? And are there songs for singing when the light has gone dim? Or in the dark, is it best to wait in silence?

Noon has darkened. As fast as they could say, ‘He’s dead,’ the light dimmed. And where are you in the darkness? I learned to spy you in the light. Here in this darkness, I cannot find you. If I had never looked for you, or looked but never found, I would not feel this pain of your absence. Or is not your absence in which I dwell, but your elusive troubling presence?

It’s the neverness that is so painful. Never again to be here with us – never to sit with us at the table…. All the rest of our lives we must live without him. Only our death can stop the pain of his death.”
Nicholas Wolterstorff, Lament for a Son
