Jogging Meatballs? Carnivorously???? is 'not' a word I'd use when looking at a bride A uestion that stayed in my mind was Will people 'pick' this 500 page book? Books compete with one another I was surprised to see such a long book by a first time author My fear for the author and publisher is its a 'risk' being this long Stephen King and Ken Follett can write books as long as they want but a new author? This book was GREAT but could it have been as good with 200 'less' pages? I hope people do take the time to read this 'gem'Its a story that that feels real This story matters
