    One thought on “The Letter”

    1. I won this book in a first reads giveaway and I was very excited about winning it. I wanted to read it because it was about a group of guys who were going on a road trip across the US. I cycled across the US this summer and I thought that the book would be a really good read. I was looking forward to read how Tom, the main character, would react to the places that I had been.The book frustrated the stew out of me. Instead of being about the adventures that the guys encountered on their trip, it [...]

    2. Thank you to Joseph Devon for offering this poignant book as a First Reads giveaway. The Letter is a very detailed and vivid exploration of a man's soul-searching journey, not only across the country but through time, thoughts and relationships. It's not so much a letter (really didn't "get" the transitions from letter to journal) but more of a reminiscing, a long walk down a very painful memory lane riddled with sadness, missed opportunities and deep dark secrets and emotions. Aside from the s [...]

    3. This book had me hooked from the beginning. When it began in a deli shop I was unsure where it would lead. When the main character began recalling things from his past I instantly fell in love with his family. My heart ached for this character because of the pain and loss he must have been going through.I was not annoyed or tired of how inside himself the character was even around his friends because I understood. I understood how when things get so bad theres no safe place anymore until you jus [...]

    4. I won this book on the First Reads program. I have to confess that when I received it I saw that it was self-published and was a bit worried. But it was a good book. Well-written and interesting. I do think it could have used a bit more editing. There were some parts that dragged but overall the book enjoyable and I was intrigued by the character's stories.

    5. I enjoyed reading this book. I was involved. It made me cry, and it made me laugh. I thought that the end could have been tied things up more and I wasn't really sure how it actually started, I didn't get the connection from the deli and the birthday to how he had to see his friend right then.

    6. It was ok. Not great. Just ok. Part of it comes from my expectations, I guess. I had just read Probability Angels and expected something just as captivating. If you like to put yourself in another person's shoes and escape into the story of someone else, you might like this.

    7. Enjoyed this book it was something I might not have ever picked up on my own if not for winning this book from First Reads, Thank You for the chance to read it!
