Book review grief


First of all I didn't know this book has had 3 different covers. Odd! The point of this is, I don't really know how to do book reviews with out spoiling the book. There are so many things I want to talk about for instance, what I would have liked to see happen, what I feel was left out, and what I loved. Honestly it is hard to even summarize the book with out giving away part of what happens.

I love the book. I've read it twice now, both times I loved it. I read it the first time when I was much younger but felt like rereading it again. I enjoy Wally Lamb, I would like to re-read This Much I Know is True, also by him. I have always wished I had friends who read as much as me, or at least who read the same things as me so we could read together and then discus the book. I finally thought I could discuss books on here, until I realized last time I totally blew the ending.

So. I liked the book. It was good. There were a few things I want to know about the ending but they are things I don't even think most people would worry about. I recommend the book, it's a good read, not a funny read, a serious one. I love it! Go get it, read it and then we can all talk about it!

Loved this book as well. I bought it back in 1996 I think and just recently picked it up again.

You ought to join Goodreads. I like it on there. You can review and discuss away. It is good fun.

You could aways create a spin off blog just for books (a kind of online book club).

Something like...do a poll each month to choose the book, give a deadline date to have the book read...then you can write a post with your opinions, and the discussions in the comments section could commence!

I would totally join!
