It was long at times, but I love long books. By the time it was over, I was a blubbering idiot, and not in a super sad way, but in a great way.
I love Wally Lamb!
I really enjoyed this book, and I got it because of all the positive reviews. My only problem is, why must the reader be subjected to the authors political views? That was the only thing that turned me off. I found myself tuning out at certain points, and then getting back into it when he stuck to the relationships and characters. I think you can write a book like this without adding all your own political views. I would have rated this 5 stars if not for that!
I was looking for entertainment. I got it and a whole lot more. Too Bad that I had to hear every potlical view from the author, from evolution to carbon emissions. It was a nice story, but the author could have left out all her views. I found myself grunting every time she spewed her intellectual liberal theories. By the way, I wonder if Julia Glass has made any money off her books? The capitalist pig! UGH
I do not normally write reviews, but this book is a must. I went through the gamut of emotions, literally sobbing at some points. Not only out of sadness but happiness too. Just not long enough. I could have listened for 50 more hours.
This is an amazing story. But it also is changing me. I am a Christian, but I am learning so much about my life and myself listening to it.
You will not be disappointed. If I could give it 10 stars, I would.
