Book Review of The Hour I First Believed

The Hour I First Believed
reviewed on

Though not as compelling as his other two books, I thoroughly enjoyed "The Hour I First Believed." Using fictional characters immersed in a very real tragedy was interesting and sucked me into their lives. There were little twists in the plot that I didn't see coming, which I love, and kept me reading far too late into the night. It was nearly a relief to be done with the book, so I could return to my normal sleep schedule! Wally Lamb is an incredible author not to be missed.
