Is it worth me carrying on with it because frankly, its a drag and I am concerned I am going to get to the end and find out Henry is Jesus.

How far have you got ? It does make more sense as it progresses and you revisit the situations from the other perspective.

Hmm... am up to his wedding.

you must carry on.

this is the best book i have ever read and it left me feeling so many types of emotion, a book has never done that to me before.

It is a fantastic book imo.

really enjoyed reading it but got confused by ending - think it leaves a few things hanging. maybe im just thick and didnt get it, if im wrong then someone please tell me cos i hate it when books dont make everything clear (not on this thread tho obviously)

IS he Jesus?( this is an american book after all)
Does she die?

Hi. Idon't really know if your allowed to just join in conversations but I loved this book. I was completly bored and nearly gave up to begin with but am so glad I didn't. It felt like the first half of the book was establishing the context so as to appreciate the relationship properly. I interpreted it as a desperatly sad love story. This book really touched me its one that i'll read over and over again. Sorry to go on, but no one I know has read it so I have no one to discuss it with.

but did you understand the ending jeany? loved the book but cant work out what the hell happened and its driving me mad (i lead a sad life). i found it incredibly sad aswell btw

Yeah, I read back over the relevant passage and still couldn't really tie the bits up. I sort of know what happened but am not sure it was really clear. I enjoyed the book generally but found the ending a bit unsatisfactory.

I worked out what happened but won't post it here as it'll spoil it for those still reading.
