Wisdom for the Journey

by RandyEhrler on May 22, 2012

What makes Wally Lamb great is that he writes about real life - a life to which the reader can truly relate. The truth of the matter is that life often sucks! It is often mundane, depressing, frustrating, difficult and uninspiring. Filled with work, chores, arguments, leaky roofs, busted cars and ... More

another Great book by Lamb

by wallareader on Jul 29, 2010

The story is not just that of Columbine, but is a novelist study into posttraumatic stress syndrome; and how it has affected the U.S. for years.

great read

by sammys on Nov 5, 2009

The characters were real, if not a little too messed up. I flipped through the family ... More

Really hard to put down!

by djesquire on Jul 14, 2009

This is a great book. It goes a great deal into the after effects of someone present during the Columbine shootings- but also goes way beyond it and deals with many family issues, dealing with the past, supporting a spouse in trouble, learning that all of us can fail and hurt others in the "right" ...
