I read the first half and then had to put it down because it was too heavy for me. And I never picked it up again. Of course this is when it first came out so I was in High School. Maybe now I could handle it. I loved his other one She's Come Undone.

It is kind of heavy, but amazing. I liked She's Come Undone, but it didn't compare, it was almost too light. So, are you up for it with me? We can discuss it together!

Let's do it! It is a bit long, but it sucks you in. I read it in about a week and a half. So when should we start? I have 2 little ones with NO spare time, so I might be a little slow.

I read in maybe a couple years ago and REALLY enjoyed it... I don't have time to re-read it right now, but I'll join in any discussions about it... I remember it quite well

Okay, I have to get it back from my mom. I'm so happy to share it with others, I know that sounds dorky, but it's just so intense, I feel like it really needs a discussion.

I just started it a few days ago, I am about 150 pages in and so far, it's excellent!

Well currently I cant, as all my books are packed away in boxes because we are moving! Perhaps I could check it out at the library.

Oh, I want to join. I read She's Come Undone a few years back. I really like his writing style. I was so sad the book ended because I wanted to read more.

I've got to get out and get this book by the weekend.

I just started rereading it.

This was a fantastic book. I've reread it several times. I adopted some of the lines as a life motto from the end of the book regarding celebrating the roundness of things.

I almost envy those of you starting it all new!

I read that in hs and loved it! I also loved She's Come Undone. I wish he'd come out with another one...I love the way he writes.

I read it once a few years back and loved it. It's actually one of my top three favorite books of all time. I also like his book, "She's Come Undone."

Yeah, I love Wally Lamb. I'll see if I can find my copy and join y'all. I'll need to read it slow too since I have a few books going at once.

Oh I loved this book! I read it a few years ago and would love to read it again. If My BFF still has it, I might like to join in on a discussion.
