    Pretty Darn Good

    I thought this book was really good. I read 'The Lovely Bones' by Alice Siebold and read in a magazine that if you liked that book then you would enjoy 'How to be Lost' and they were right. I found myself captivated with each chapter. Before I knew it I had read the whole book and was pleased with the ending.

    Disappointing

    Ward is a talented writer (Sleep Toward Heaven) but this novel is weak and forgettable with its shallow characters and overly plotted storyline. The main problem is that I didn't care about the characters, especially Caroline who never fully sprang to life. Ward seems more interested in going for the easy laugh than investing the time and energy necessary to create flesh and blood characters. The Montana section is nearly unreadable, but I kept reading simply to find out what happens. As with genre fiction, I was reading for plot, and as soon as I finished the last page the novel swiftly began to evaporate from my mind.

    Brings you to tears

    Amanda Ward explores loss with clean,clear compelling prose. Parts of the story are so achingly touching that I had to put it down for a few minutes inorder to digest my feelings. A great story with a puzzling mystery woven throughout the beauty of its pages.
