This was my first swap received in the mail with PaperBackSwap, and now one of my most favorite books. The author is talented and gifted with great style, descriptions and wit. National Book Award Finalist.

This book was touching and sweet. I bit slow in places but only because I wanted to see more.

I enjoyed reading this book. It is very humorous with minimal sappy romance. Everything up until the end was very enjoyable, but the ending puts me into a rather neutral category, though I can see others really falling for it and its creativity.

This is a good book and worthwhile to read. A librarian who has never been in love falls in love with an 11 year old very tall boy who grows into a giant. He accepts her as a friend. She becomes his best friend and he comes to love her also. The giant only lives to be 20 years old, but in those years they become very close. Their romance is bittersweet and very touching. In the very end there is a surprise for the reader.

Interesting enough to keep me moving right along--not sure I agreed with the premise though.
