I just reread this with my nephew - a buddy read. I was reminded how much I loved this book years ago. It's a short and somewhat simple story that leaves me aching and questioning myself about ethics and morals and what, exactly, does "right or wrong" mean? Lenny is one of the most endearing figures...

Ok, I think I’m traumatized now! Believe it or not, I read this book for the first time without knowing much about the story or anything about how it ended. There was enough foreshadowing that I felt pretty sure something horrible would happen by the end, but it ended up being a bit beyond what I h...

What can I say about a book like this? More to the point, what can I say that hasn't already been said? I highly doubt I can add anything original, but I can tell you what I thought.

I first read this back in high school, which amazes me now because I had forgotten how much profanity is in it. Aside from the the cussing, it's a great story and I enjoyed it even more this time listening to it on Audible. Gary Sinise gives an exceptional performance with all the voices and the d...
