Dumb. Waste of time, though painless.

Really quite wonderful. Funny, but not overdone. There was a great respect for all the characters that made for a really engaging, sweet story.

I am opting for lighter reads this month to try and achieve some of the challenges I have set myself this year. This feel good story fits the bill.

I was hoping for more from this Pulitzer Prize Winning Author - but I found the book to be boring, Micah rather dull, the only bright bit was Micah's Family. I know what the author was trying for, a book about a man set in his ways, having to expand his world when the unexpected happens. Unfortunately, it didn't work for me.
