Model Home

So I just finished this book - Model Home.   And I gotta' say that this photo sorta' represents exactly how I felt about the book.   Kinda' dark and moody with a glimmer of light, a glimmer of hope - every now and then.   Moments of extreme clarity and other moments when you just can't see or understand why this is all happening.

I can't remember the last time I had such a strong reaction to a book - I mean the kind of reaction where I'm yelling at the characters in the book to..."just snap out of it already...", but yet at the same time I kept turning the pages - wanting to read more...   I'm sure that had something to do with my pre-disposition to the "happy ending" - to make sure it's all going to be ok.

On some level it's a comedy of errors...   Any minute someone's going to say - just kidding - that didn't really happen.   On some other level it's a nod to the human spirit - our ability to survive even under the worst of circumstances...

Seriously - if you think you've got problems - read this book!  If you do read it - I'd be interested in hearing your reaction.
