Empire Falls

Empire Falls - It took me until the very last page to get the pun in the title. Fortunately it took me only about sixty pages to get into the book; I was worried I never would -- it starts out pretty slow. But then it sucks you in and drags you the rest of the way until the bitter end.The thing that I most liked about this book was that I never knew what was going to happen. The plot is almost impossible to describe aloud and the only real way to find out why the book was written is by actually reading it. And while I think this is one of the reasons I had such a hard time getting into it, because I couldn't see where it was going and what was in in it for me, ultimately it's the reason I couldn't put it down at the end. Well worth your time.
