What a great book!!!

Has everyone else read this wonderful book? I've read reviews and thought, okay, I'll get that one someday. Well, today was the day. The library got it from another library for me. I picked it up at 1 pm. I opened it at 3:45 pm and I finished it at 8!!! I was spellbound - I never put it down. Do you know how long it's been since a book gripped me like that??? Forever!!!

So - tell me what you think/thought of it. It's okay - you don't have to love it - we can still be friends!!! Just let me know!

And J? I certainly highly recommend it for the book club!!!

I read it while I was at the beach in July and just loved it. The characters were just wonderful.

I was reluctant to read it also, but I finally got it and finished it this weekend. It was a nice story but had a very predictable ending. I'd give it an A-. I'm glad I read it.

Hi - My book club read it a couple months ago and fell in love with it. It may have had a bit of a predictable outcome, but we came to adore all the characters on the island, even the cranky ones. Now we all want to go to Guernsey. A couple weeks ago while I was on the south coast of England looking out to sea, I was thinking "I am closer to Guernsey now than I have ever been and I wish I had more time so I can take the ferry." Once I got into the letter-writing format, I was hooked. It was a good read. ---thumbs up!
