No Time To Wave Goodbye by Jacquelyn Mitchard

First of all, I'm writing this post to prep me for my next blog. This is the easy one. Also, I broke my rule for this book. The rule I haven't said out loud... I have a lot of unread books in my life. I'm not planning to buy a new one until I read them. However, I saw this one in a book store for sale.

This book is a continuation of a book I read SO long ago. It was either in 99 or the early 2000s. I can't remember, but I can picture where I lived when I watched the move (out from the book). It's the continuation from the book The Deep End of The Ocean. But set about 10 to 15 years later. The older son is almost 30 (for anybody who has read the first book).

I enjoyed reading this book, and I'm so glad I found it. It was a quick read, which says a lot to me. If I'm able to read it quick... that means I can't put it down. I think I would have enjoyed it more had I read the first book before hand. I've read it, but not in many years. I needed a catch up, and I skipped it because I wanted to read this one so much. I might have liked this more if I had read the book. I recently watched the movie, and that's all I had to go on... which doesn't really tell me anything.

The book I most recently read was great. I enjoyed it, I liked the ending, I liked the main characters. There were characters I didn't really get. Like Ben/Sam... but maybe it's because I don't get it... I've never been in that situation, and I can't put myself in that situation. It's not very often that I can't imagine myself in a situation though.

Anyway. If you've read the first one -the second one's probably something to read/
