I Know This Much Is True by Wally Lamb
I Know This Much Is True

lveltheim, July 12, 2008

I have a love/hate relationship with this ambitious tome. Truth of the matter is it cheaps out for the ending. It just takes all the complex interrelationships and family history each person carries, brings the reader the hard way through generations of anger, grief, and personal struggles and then in the last part of the book does a quick summary of everyone with happy endings--money, relationships, and even infertility are all casually and easily solved. I was furious.
