    This is a beautifully written book with stories that touch your heart with their insight, compassion, and tenderness. I have read and reread this book and bought copies for friends and family. It is book every one should read. It will remind you how precious everything in life is.

    Magnificent debut

    This is the author's debut, but it feels like a classic from the first page. The real satisfaction is Cronin's exquisite prose: there are passages on almost every page that had me in awe of this man's talent. I haven't felt this way about a book or an author since I first 'discovered' J.D. Salinger, or Anne Tyler: complete and utter astonishment that someone can craft such beautiful prose and make you care so deeply about the characters, joy and pain and all. As a reader, I felt a real sense of importance with these stories--you read them, and you just know that Justin Cronin is destined for greatness. 'Mary and O'Neil' is among the most promising debuts I've seen in years.

    Excellent. I would highly recommend this to almost everyone.

    I first read his newest book! passage. It was unexpectedly complex and vastly interesting. Then the Summer Guest and now this! I can't wait for more. It seems a quiet tale until the people of it become treasured and their lives so true. Just read it.

    Don't Miss This One!

    This beautifully written novel reads like poetry. Laid out in 8 short stories, the lives of Mary & O'Neil are woven in and out of those of their families and friends. Justin Cronin treats us to glimpses of life - these characters' lives, our own lives, and the great long chain of all human life. Bravo!

    Great book, but why is the electronic version -- that requires only electrons, and not atoms to deliver -- more than the paperback? Moronic. This is yet another reason why I'll be tossing out my Nook and returning to print books.

    Repetitive

    I don't understand why some authors remind us over and over again of certain facts are surely not to be forgotten anyway. Is this an attempt to make the story longer? I was so distracted by the same information time and again SO I rate it 3 stars. Some of the book was nice, interesting and funny at times.
