Customer Reviews of One True Thing: A Novel


Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must read Wow not typically a book I would read, but what a fantastic read and a strong dose of the realities of life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful! Quindlan is so gifted. In this book, she manages to take things that are common and turn them into the extraordinary. While the book is about a young woman coming home to care for her dying mother -- it is really about relationships and accepting our parents for who they are -- and learning about them as individuals. Quindlan creates believable characters with honest souls, and plots with real-life experiences. Beautifully crafted, and a rewarding reading experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cried like a baby... This book is particularly "close to home" for me right now, I have a family member who is terminally ill. Quindlen effectively captured all the things of everyday life, all the nuances of family relationships, small town living, boyfriends who are bad for us, best friends who love us no matter what happens and of course, trying to deal with the loss of a loved one. The characters were so beautifully crafted, I found myself missing them when the book was over.
