I”m sure you’ve heard lots of things about this book so I won’t bother to give you a plot summary of any sort. I loved the characters and their approach to life. They made me laugh and cry and I felt like I was among friends as I was reading. I have not seen the movie but I hope to see it once it is released on DVD. I’m curious if any of you have read any of his other novels and what you thought about them. He handles this subject in a very graceful manner. As you probably guessed it is still on my mind days after finishing it. I wish it has a prequel.
