Book Review: I Know This Much Is True by Wally Lamb

I Know This Much Is True I Know This Much Is True by Wally Lamb

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This was a great book about the lives of twin boys. Dominick and Thomas Birdsey. Thomas is schizophrenic, and after their mother's death from cancer Dominick is left to deal with Thomas and his treatment and their cruel step-father Ray. This book relives the boys' childhood and that of their grandfather Domenico Tempesta.

Through their grandfather's history, which was left in journal format, Dominick begins to piece part of his life together. At first I didn't like the grandfather's story but found myself quickly liking his story as well as Dominick and Thomas' present day story.

Even though this is a longer book, it was hard to put down making it easy to get through. After reading this book I would like to read more by Wally Lamb.
