Mmm...gargantuan pastry...


I totallyl agree. I'm not sorry I read it, but I had to skim the end too. "Gah" sums it up.


loved the message - the book made me crazy.


I haven't read it, even though it's our Pierce County reads selection for the public library; I could meet the author! (last year it was Alexander McCall Smith and I did go to that) I had heard from a friend that the book was poorly written--call me a snob, but I would rather read a blah but beautifully written book.


I got so caught up in the story I think I didn't really notice how poorly written it was. I was moved.


I'm having a hard time with it. I appreciate some of the history and background of the area, but sometimes he goes off on such a tangent that I've lost the connection with the story at hand. And the language is, indeed, over the top. I think a bit of simplicity would have served this story well. It's inspiring enough without having to wax poetic over the landscape.


Thank you! I knew this was appearing on too many people's lists of favorites for me to like it. I couldn't ignore it, but now I can!


I listened to the audiobook version and that was the way to go. It was awesome.
