Amber Alert

Don't try so hard, the best things come when you least expect them to.

I Know This Much is True

I Know This Much is True by Wally Lamb

The book is about twins, one twin is schizophrenic, one twin feels cheated and angered.  One father missing, one step-father close by.  Friendships gained and lost.  Life twisted, explored, and affirmed.

This is the second book from Wally Lamb that I have read in as many months.  Being a new author to me makes me very critical so I was pleasantly surprised at how well I like the writings of Lamb. 

Twice as thoughtful and twice as heart-wrenching . . . soul-bearing . . . gratifying . . . it is a roller coaster ride of emotions.  I felt the pain and sadness of the characters.  I could relate to the characters which is big feat to accomplish (one of the big reasons Lamb was rated at a 5).

Rating (1, lowest; 5, highest): 5

I was not compensated in any way for this review.  I picked this book out of my children's school's community library.

There's always going to be people that hurt you so what you have to do is keep on trusting and just be more careful about who you trust next time around.

Don't cry because it is over,
smile because it happened.

Maybe God wants us to meet a few wrong people before meeting the right one, so that when we finally meet the right person, we will know how to be grateful.

To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world.

Thought of the Day - 3/21/10

The worst way to miss someone is to be sitting right beside them knowing you cannott have them.
