This book was beautifully written, I just couldn't get into the story. I'm not sure why, it just never pulled me in.

This was a beautiful and amazing story. I don't want to say too much in fear of giving anything away, but it is definitely worth a look. I'm going to hold on to this one for awhile, because I'll probably read it again.

My friend gave me this book as a gift, and I am so glad she did. I really loved this story -- it was so beautiful and rich and something I couldn't put down. I know I will read this again and again. I am very happy to have this as part of my collection.

I first read this book when I was 15, and loved it immediately. I now read it again about every other year, and I discover something else to love about it every time. It's definitely my favorite book. It is simply a fantastic love story, if also a little quirky. But aren't the best love stories full of humor, too? The list in the book of "how to make love stay" is one of my favorite things ever. This is definitely not a typical love story, but if you are a romantic and like things a little left of center, definitely check it out.

This book had a good story, but I couldn't completely buy into it. Maybe I just didn't want to think that the central event in this book could have the repercussions that it did. Of course, I think it's hard to hear any story about a family that falls apart.


Zodiac Manager: An Astrological Expose of Everyone in the Office
Review Date: 3/4/2009


This book was fun. It allows you to look at your coworkers in a different way, and might help to explain some of their behavior. Kind of silly, but it helps to add some levity to the workplace.
