Waiting to Know You is a complex and compelling story worth sitting down and devoting yourself too. There are none of the cookie cutter characters you seem to find in so many modern novels. You don't find a heroine that is gorgeous, and successful and just looking for the right man to really find bliss. Instead you travel through a complex network of individuals who drastically influence each others lives in ways unexpected. The dialog is so realistic you feel as though you are standing in front of the characters listening to them talk. They are confused, searching for purpose, searching for love. They may be different from me but I relate to their feelings and desires. Religion is intertwined though out their lives and gives depth to the characters. The two main religions described in the book, Mormonism and Utwlkjdf, act as foils to each other but at the same time show how a person can be shaped from their religious upbringing. The story also explores illegal drug use, polygamy, nature vs. nurture, infidelity and many other themes that are both relate-able and relevant. Karisha Kal'ee'ay's writing gives life to the numerous locations used in the story. Prostitution was brought up, almost casually, in a way that I had never considered before, a morbidly obese woman performing fellatio for money because she was physically incapable of nearly every form of "normal" occupation. The humiliation that woman, Virginia, bore made me feel horribly sympathetic and guilty at the same time. As the characters interact with Virginia it reveals the deepest parts of their personality that wouldn't be shown in their deals with the majority of other people.Read more ›

This story is well written with fantastic character development. Their sometimes dysfunctional lives are in peril mixed with sexual and religious confusion which I related to as I was born and raised in the mormon church explored here which still has tremendous impact on my now estranged family. There are many similarities to these lives and those that I have experience with and I related to the rebellious and impulsive nature of one of the brothers and his sexual adventures. It is very entertaining and interesting with insight into how complicated as well as tragic life can be. I look forward to new books from this talented author. She could develop screen plays for TV or movies.

I'm sorry to tell you this but I couldn't really get into the heart of this book... took book off my kindle almost half way through. Sometimes I feel a book should have you interested in the first two chapters. Maybe this wasn't my kind of book...a little dark? But it was free to download. I'm thankful for having the chance to read a different author...

The characters are unique and intriguing, the story is unpredictable, and the writing is excellent throughout. There is so much going on in this book, but the author fits it together in a wonderful story. I was impressed by the range of life issues discussed thoughtfully and insightfully in this book. From the boy Paul to aged Barbara, the challenging life of Virginia to the always extreme Lunt, there is so much to experience, to think about, and to be thoroughly entertained by. I came to really care about the characters and their stories as they moved through ups and downs. I didn't want the book to end because I wanted to keep following the lives of the characters. The way these stories interact and effect each other is realistic and always interesting. Some of what made the largest impression on me were the small offshoots from the main plot. Dan's experience at a funeral, his meeting with an ex-convict friend, and his fluctuating desire for purpose were especially touching. Lunt's visit to an ex-wife, and his rescue of Old Lunt were powerful moments. The stories of Virginia and Amber, the book's two heroines, show the possibility for recovery and success after tragedy and abuse, while conceding that for some, victories may have to be smaller than for others. It is a beautiful novel and I can't wait for more from this author.
