Re: Terrific Piece On Bruce!

It is nice to see an author get this kind of press.

Good for Bruce.

Don't you think they  select pretty good books for us to discuss? We are indeed lucky.

Re: Terrific Piece On Bruce!

Thanks for sharing that review on Bruce!  Since I have been vocal about having a hard time with this book - I would really like to hear if he had a hard time with it or did it just come easy to him?  Because some of the scenes are really hard to read, at least for me!

Re: Terrific Piece On Bruce!

Not only did I read the article through this site, but I also have an original clipping from the WSJ tucked into my ARC book.  The review is dead on and I believe the reviews that will be posted on the B&N site will be at least equal if not full of more praise.  The book is just an all around excellent read!

Re: Terrific Piece On Bruce!

The review of the book is a hit right on the nails head. This novel is one of the best that I have read so far. From the moment I opened it and started reading, I smelled the earth being kicked up by the horses, and I felt the sweat of this family while they work. Great article!

I am honored to be part of the First Look club with such a strongly recommended book as part of the program.  Of course, now that I'm reading the book, I can concur that it is exceptional.

Re: Terrific Piece On Bruce!

Really impressive for a first novel to have a featured review in the WSJ.   I'm looking forward to rereading just to appreciate the language.  This kind of publicity should be a big boost for sales.  How fun that we're getting our First Look at something that is already creating buzz.

Re: Terrific Piece On Bruce!

I always love seeing the books we are reading or have read in magazines and newspapers.  I recall seeing "The Postmistress" in People and I found it exciting that I had already read the book that was being reviewed!

Re: Terrific Piece On Bruce!

Thanks Paul for sharing!  It's nice to see Bruce get such well-deserved press.  I always enjoy reading reviews about the First Look books.  Then when I see the books in the bookstores, I feel so proud, as if it were my own child's debut!

Re: Terrific Piece On Bruce!

So awesome! Bruce deserves every good word and to be featured among such great writers.  The Wake of Forgiveness has truly been a treasure to read and I'm so glad First Look (and Bruce of course) gave us the opportunity to enjoy his wonderful novel.
