Review: We Are Water

We Are Water We Are Water by Wally Lamb
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Beautiful! I listened to the audio version of this book and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Wally Lamb himself took the part of Orion and it worked so well as did all the other players in the story.

The book was written in my favourite first person version with each person giving their own accounts. In this way I find that you can get deeper into the characters and have a more personal relationship with them.

The story itself was a bit hard to read in its emotional content but it did work well. Reading what had made each person into what they are now was nothing short of genius writing. All were great but especially the backstory of Kent, the pedophile.

It opens with a family getting ready to attend the wedding of a mother and wife, Annie, to a woman, Viveca. As each member enters we go deep into their own stories, some of which are very difficult to swallow.

Wally Lamb is more than fantastic as a writer and I have loved every book of his that I have read so far.
