Book Review: Let The Great World Spin

All I can say is...this book is AMAZING!   Ok - maybe that's not all I can say...   Here's the other thing - I need to vow (right now) to never use the word "amazing" again...it's way overused.

One of my goals this year is to read more (for pleasure.)   So even though I'm only two books in - that's probably more than I can say for this time last year.  The thing is, I really, really enjoy reading...I was just not making the time to read.   That's all a'changing now...

My last book review was here - "Model Home" - check it out (the review and the book)...my Mom is reading it now (and liking it, so far).

To think how we are all interconnected...    "Let The Great World Spin" shines a very bright (and uplifting) spotlight on how we all play a part in each other's lives.   And how most of the time we are completely unaware of that fact.   The characters are extremely profound and complex, but in a relatable way.   I think the author does a great job of conveying an really complex, interwoven story - an orchestra of sorts.   It's astounding how he continually introduces new characters linking each one to the next.   Frankly I don't know how he kept it all straight, but I'm glad he did - because it makes for a really great read.   You'll definitely find yourself routing for each and every character...

Thanks Tamara for another great recommendation!

On to "The Dud Avocado"...
