THE HOUR I FIRST BELIEVED

I'm only about 1/2 way through this book, but I'm feeling lonely when reading it - I'd love to hear who else is reading it, and how you're reacting to it.

Wally Lamb says it's a story about the juggling between hope and despair.

Yes.

That's it.

Just got it in the mail, but I've not started reading it yet.

My life feels like a balance between hope and despair! YIKES!

Feeling lonely that doesn't sound like a book I want to read?

Have not read this book yet.

I can't watch the video because I have a *sent home sick from school on the first day back from break* child sleeping on the couch and we don't want to disturb her now do we?

I do like Wally Lamb though.
Hope, despair?
Sounds like the universal story.

I've got to read that. Am a huge Lamb fan. :)

I just bought the book a couple of days ago and I'm enjoying it. I do get frustrated with Caelum though, he's so self destructive. I understand why he is, I just hope he figures it out himself.

That's it - I'm buying this one. Right now I'm savoring I Know This Much is True. Excellent storyteller.

I was disappointed overall. I hate being disappointed by someone whose previous work was brilliant and who made me wait ten years between books.

I've got about 100 pages left - I've been in a undefinable mood for days, finally determined it's the BOOK - it's depressing/bugging/frustrating/bothering me!
