We Are Water: A Novel

We Are Water - Wally Lamb This is a story of the Oh family. Each member of this family has secrets. Some of them have darker secrets than others.

I absolutely LOVED the way these secrets are revealed and the way that they all related to one another without anyone realizing it. The way it is written makes me feel like I am a part of this family with secrets of my own.

This book is filled with so much emotion and it has taken me 2 weeks to get through it. I felt like it has been such an investment of my time. This has not been an easy breezy summer read. It is involved, it is dark, it is deep and it is disturbing.

It wasn't until the very end that the reason for the title is revealed and it made perfect sense. The ending also reminded me of Mr. Lamb's other book She's Come Undone (which I loved).

I recommend this book to anyone and everyone! Many thanks to HarperCollins Publishing and Edelweiss for this advanced readers copy. This book is scheduled for release in October 2013.
