I didn't think the book was anything special at first. I had to read it for school. It doesn't have much action in it and i thought it was just gonna be dull, but the end totally caught me off gaurd. Overall it ended up beging a pretty good book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I disagree with the "professional" reviewers who say the characters in this novel are shallow. I picked this book up in a remainder bin because it was cheap. I'd never read anything by Cormier before. This story engaged me and brought me to tears more than once. It made me go search out other poetry by Kenneth Patchen whose poem provides the title, too. All this happened 3 or 4 years ago and I still remember the book. By the way, I'm a fifty-something computer programmer, married & mother of one. I'm not a Roman Catholic or a New Englander either. If you enjoy novels of faith and hope, you will enjoy this one.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This was a good book. It didn't have romance, or action, but it definitely had drama. It was worth the read! I would recommend this to anyone looking to read a good book without profanity. I think both pre-teen and young teen girls will appreciate this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
