Very masculine coming of age story

by jmarrapodi on Aug 22, 2009

I hated this book and actually threw it away before finishing it. It's the story of a man dealing with the grief process who returns to the summer vacation spot of his childhood. He went through his adolescence here and the book explores his thinking. As young men are wanton to be, it tended to be ... More

Enjoyable read

by screwdskull on Mar 7, 2008

A must read

by napman45 on Apr 3, 2007

If you are looking to read a beautifully written, challenging, stimulating ffictional story I can not recommend a book more highly. A personal tale with a twist. I would retire and read for the rest of my life if every book was a captivating as The Sea. More
