This is a beautifully written novel. Just do yourself a favor and read it.
UPDATE - Finished :
Finished this 9/27. I think this was written around 1940 -- Setting is in a Georgia, depression era. It is a powerful novel. The characters are well developed.
Until I find You - I'm a fan of John Irving & I read his novels. This one is good. Widow for a Year was my favorite of his .... but, I was on vacation when I read it & maybe that had something to do with it.
Found out yesterday that Bee Season is a movie. What a surprise - and Richard Gere cast as the Father. There is nothing I can say about this book that won't give away the story. When I was mid-point of the book, I thought I had everything figured out .... and I was so wrong. This is the sort of book that you keep thinking about after you read. And makes you re-think parenting & roles of those things that influence our children.
This is MarkHaddon's book. Been on the best-seller list awhile. It is young adult fiction & well written. What a challenge!
I know this was popular with several reading friends. Honestly, I thought it was so-so.
