Loved it! Did you follow all of the hoop-lah years ago when Lamb discussed how he got the female perspective so well? I liked his second one, too, but since then he seems to have fallen off the face of the earth or something? (Or have I got the two works backwards? I seem to recall now that She's Come Undone was the first?)

Oh well, I really enjoyed them both.

I have She's Come Undone also but haven't read it yet. Should I have read that one first?

No, no need to, as they are vastly different stories. Oddly enough, many readers liked one or the other, but not both. I thought both were great.

I loved "She's come undone" and liked " I know this much is true".... wonder if we will hear from this author again? Let us know how you like the books

I liked She's Come Undone, didn't love it...but found that it stayed with me long after...so that I read it again about a year later.

I Know This Much is sitting there, waiting for me to read it again, I read it when it first came out. It was very good!

No, I don't remember the author talking about where his female perspective came from?? Sounds interesting.
