Finished reading the new Wally Lamb book last night and was ..... underwhelmed.....some years ago I really really enjoyed 'I know this much is true' and had been looking forward to his new book so much......but I had to plough my way through this and found myself wishing it was a smaller book...but I had to finish it .... and well.......did you just hear me sigh? On the plus side I start a new book in bed tonight.....
