    Not worth reading

    My book club chose this book and I am very disappointed. I think the story is shallow and I do not care about any of the characters. I would read almost anything else.

    Disappointed

    The book was adequate but I was disappointed. The characters were just not very well developed and I didnt really care about any of them, including the main character. The dialogue was not that well written. There was no complexity, everyone was portrayed in a very simplistic way without any depth. Disappointing.

    Great!!!

    I first read Carolyn See's 'Making a Literary Life,' which was amazingly funny, honest, instructive, and touching. Then I picked up 'The Handyman' and was amazed by the story's flow, the characters, the humor, the emotional pull of the narrative. I even read it outloud to myself. The language is simple, but quite affective. Just marvelous.

    Wow!

    This is the best book I have read all year. It touched me, made me realize that our calling in life is not right under our noses but deep in our souls.
