Here’s a little taste of what
I’m getting myself into the book is about (courtesy of Amazon):
Few first novels receive the kind of attention and acclaim showered on this powerful story—a nationwide bestseller, a critical success, and the first title chosen for Oprah’s Book Club. Both highly suspenseful and deeply moving, The Deep End of the Ocean imagines every mother’s worst nightmare—the disappearance of a child—as it explores a family’s struggle to endure, even against extraordinary odds. Filled with compassion, humor, and brilliant observations about the texture of real life, here is a story of rare power, one that will touch readers’ hearts and make them celebrate the emotions that make us all one.
Like I’ve said before, it’s a sobfest in the making.
But seeing as I get weirdly obsessed by real life kidnapping cases (Jaycee Dugard, anyone?), I’m more than a little interested in this fictional version. Let’s see if I still feel that way when there are too many tears running down my face for me to even blog about it again.
