I have this book, too, and am wanting to get through some of these others I'm in the middle of, so I can delve into Lamb's work. Did you read his other two? I'm not sure which of the first two I enjoyed more.

No, I haven't read any of his other work, but I do plan on it now. I was in high school when Columbine happened (and our high school experienced a horrible loss that same year as well due to violence), so reading "The Hour I First Believed" has been very emotional, it brought back so many memories (good and bad) of that time frame that I had forgotten about.

I'm reading Leading With My Heart, by Bill Clinton's mother Virginia Clinton Kelley.

Woweeeee! I felt like I've been on a racetrack since I opened this book.
What a fast-reading exciting book! Love this woman! Why couldn't I have had a mother like this!

Married 4 times, first three husbands died. She told her last husband: Just look at my track record before you say: I do!

A really fun, fun auto-biography!

About half way through, I thought "this was good, it could end now"...and then it really got good!

Both of his previous books I liked a lot, but didn't they seem totally different to be from the same author? Well, this new book kind of met both of them...now I can see the themes which are similar in them.

Long!, but worth the read.

I gave up on Heart of Darkness. I was reading several imperialism-in-Africa books, and thought I would like it. I was wrong!!

Am now reading The Nature of Water and Air. I don't know yet if the story will have staying power with me, but the writing is so pretty!

Just finished Ann Rule's "The Stranger Beside Me" (the 2000 updated version) about Ted Bundy. Since she knew Ted Bundy, having worked with him and considered him a friend, it took her a long time before she actually believed he was guilty. Kinda makes ya wonder what you really know about people in your own life. Started on another of her's - "....And Never Let Her Go". Already getting interested in the people involved.

I just finished The Man in the High Castle. I'm not sure what to make of it.

Anyone with comments about this book can DM me or post in the thread I made about it in this (book) section.
