MOTIVATION for READING: I was enticed to read this after reading so many glowing reviews during RIP last year (and likely the year before that.) I borrowed a print copy from my friend Holly but was caught up in a reading-slowdown in October when I got a puppy to chase after. Reading went out the window; I only read 2 books that month! And then… I was in Western Kansas with my iPad when I decided to check the free books available for my iBook application. Hot Diggety – this novel was available. I somehow found the place I had left off during that slump the month before and this classic was my companion under the bitter end.
Thus, being of lax mind and out of review practice, I will point you to my favorite review of this favorite story. Chris at BookARama captured it best, in my opinion. And do seek out the Book Blog Search for many many more.
