    This is a book I have been meaning to read since 1997 That s actually even before it was officially published, which might seem weird, if you didn t already know that Wally Lamb was teaching writing at my high school at the time he was working on this novel and if you didn t know that my freshman English class helped edit one of the first chapters, back in 1994 or 1995.The novel tells the story of Dominick and Thomas Birdsey, identic

    I m glad I finally finished because it was one of those books I kept thinking about when I was in the middle of it and I had trouble getting things done until I knew what would happen I really enjoyed it, I think it s hard to write a book with such a complex story line which all ends up coming together neatly in the end Like some how even the mysticism and twists weren t over done and felt like they flowed nicely I think this is one of

    This book just went rocketing to my all time Favourites shelf I cannot imagine spending over 20 hours reading a book and not loving it.On my eReader, this book was just 3 pages short of 900 pages, and not one paragraph, not one sentence, not one word in the book could be cut without doing the book and one s reading experience irreparable harm.The main narrator of this book is Dominick whose twin brother Thomas suffers from mental illness T

    This is one of those books I read that has never left me After I finished it I just sat in my chair and cryed for a long time And I can t explain why exactly, as the ending was surprisingly hopeful It explores the nature of close family relationships and how you can love someone and also hate them and be embarrassed by them, and the guilt that results from these conflicting emotions The main character has a mother with physical defects which

    901 pages I Know This Much is True by Wally Lamb is by far the best book I ve read in a long time Calling it my favorite is an understatement as is trying to sum it up in one review During the break, all I wanted to do was read I read about 300 pages a day I can t describe what exactly made me love the book, but I can guess First of all, every character was carefully crafted by the author and each forced me to care about what happened to them The protagonist, Dominick Birdsey, was the pe 901 pages I Know This Much is True by Wally Lamb is by far the best book I ve read in a long time Calling it my favorite is an understatement as is trying to sum it up in one review During the break, all I wanted to do was read I read about 300 pages a day I can t describe what exactly made me love the book, but I can guess First of all, every character was carefully crafted by the author and each forced me to care about what happened to them The protagonist, Dominick Birdsey, was the perfect unconventional hero His struggle to stay sane while caring for his schitzophrenic twin brother and a host of other problems was both depressing and inspirational Another reason I couldn t put the book down was the intricately woven plot At one point in the book, I was reading the story of Dominick, who was reading the story of his grandfather, Domenico, who was telling the story of his wife s sister, who was telling the story of her mentor All of this should have been confusing and impossible to follow, but the author somehow managed to put it all together and keep readers up to date It seemed like he knew exactly when to stop telling one story and get back to another that the reader was wondering about Also, every part of the plot was necessary, symbolic, and important to fully understanding Dominick s past and present The book got especially disturbing towards the end, but the happy, and in some ways triumphant, ending ensured I d never forget this bookis not for the faint of heart, but is sure to move any reader with one.
