Who is reading or plans to read this book?

I'd like to keep fiction as part of what we do here at BookTalk. How many of you intend to buy this book, read it, and jump into the discussion?

My girlfriend has already read the first 50 pages, even though she doesn't participate here on BookTalk. It makes me feel good to see her taking an interest in what we're doing. Soon I'll start reading.

I read it a month ago. While I don't plan to re-read it, I'll probably participate in the discussion.

Just got the book at the library.

I will crack it open in about a week and start reading.

Started reading this book. I am not too fond of the stye in which she writes. Granted I am only on page 30-something. You can tell this is her first novel, IMO.

Hopefully something will catch my interest soon...

I'm reading it. I'm around page 220. It takes a while to get used to, but I generally like it. I plan on participating.

I am dropping out. I struggled to page 60 and it is just not my thing.

Vonnegut handled this idea much more entertainingly. (Is that a word?)

I will check the conversations and if the chatter seems interesting, maybe I will pick it up again and jump in.

I just finished the book yesterday, and I plan to participate. (I prefer to read the whole book before I start discussing, so there are no worries of spoilers)

Post Re: Who is reading or plans to read this book?
I had planned to read the book. Now I'm not so sure. The last week has been really hard on me -- a lot of stuff dredged up from the past -- and I'm thinking this particular book may not be conducive to putting everything back into a manageable order. But we'll see. A week from now it may not bother me anymore.

I've read this book and look forward to re-reading it and re-reading it and re-reading it.

It moved me in a way hardly any other book ever has and I love talking to any and everyone about it!

Post read it an i really enjoyed it
This book is not my usual fair but i really enjoyed it. It was very moving. I know a young girl who lost her father (my sister's niece) and I kept imagining her when the daughter came back to see her dead father alive. It was the first book in a long while to move me to tears. I read the unabridged version and i did think the language was such that i would not imagine anyone under 16 at least to read the book but it will be one when my niece comes of age i would recommend to her.
