5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully written. Compelling story., June 6, 2012
This review is from: What Happened to Sophie Wilder (Paperback)
There are few things as satisfying as a book that leaves you eager to discuss it with another reader. My husband read the book before I did, and upon finishing it, he insisted that I start reading immediately. I didn't quite understand his urgency until I began reading the book. I devoured the book in a few days, excited for each new chapter and development, yet saddened by the dwindling number of remaining pages. When I finished, the characters -- and their choices -- stayed with me. Over the next few days, the book kept coming up in our conversations, as we worked out some of the questions it left us with.

Beha's writing is beautiful. Truth be told: I'm a fast reader, as I tend to skim, but i found myself unwilling to skip a single sentence. Each word seemed to be so thoughtfully chosen; never superfluous, always intentional. As a person far more interested in plot than pretty words, it takes some seriously good writing for me to take notice. Bravo, Mr. Beha.

I can't wait to read his next book. In the meantime, I know I'll read SOPHIE WILDER again.

Buy two copies and give one to a friend. You'll both want to talk about this when you finish reading.

Yours is the only review that even comes close to suggesting that the writer read the novel. I am so suspect of these, thinking that they are posted by friends the author has enticed to write them. But based on the New York Times review I am buying this novel. And if I like it, I will post a review the shows I read it. I think you did. And thanks.
