The Story of Edgar Sawtelle...possible Spoilers

I finally finished reading the Story of Edgar Sawtelle and it has left me unsure of whether or not I liked it. I'm not going to do an in depth book review because I don't want to give anything away. Overall I'm glad I read it, but I'm not sure I would say I liked it. It took a while for me to get into, and I actually read 2 other books while I was reading this one, but after about the halfway point I was really into it and read it pretty quickly. I don't want to give anything away, but I will say that it didn't turn out the way I would have wanted, and I have lots of questions still. Have any of you read it, did you like it? I know Alisa at Ambitious Aspirations read it, what did you think? I now am moving onto what I thought was a light and easy read, Lost & Found by Jacqueline Sheehan although it is starting out a bit deeper than expectedl. I think I will love it though. I didn't run today, too busy finishing Edgar, but I plan on getting 15-20 miles in by the end of the week.

I agree with your take. It was well-written and I liked the overall story...but there were definitely parts of "ugliness" (you know what I mean) that left me wondering if I really did like it or not.

I did not see the ending coming.

I just could not finish it! I started back in November, gave up for awhile and then tried again this month. I just couldn't get into it.
