    I read both several years ago, which is funny, because I didn't particularly love either. They're similar in mood (depressed), but I think I preferred She's Come Undone: it's more concise, and I could sort of relate to the plot. I Know This Much Is True spends a long time on several human relationships; you have to like that sort of thing.

    I went out and boughtI Know This Much Is True this morning. On the tube ride home I couldn't resist reading the first chapter, and if that's anything to go by, it's just as amazing as most of you have made it out to be. It's a BIG book though, which is a good thing - I love long, absorbing reads.

    I read both of those books, I enjoyed both
    not the usual type of books I read so I was a little surprised at how much I enjoyed them

    I enjoyed this book for the most part, towards the end I was ready for it to be done but then the ending was really good. I haven't read his She's Come Undone, I need a depressive-mode-book break for a little while...I just finished it in the last couple weeks.

    How funny! I gave you She's come undone and you already had I know this much is true and I think that you are the one who told me how great it was. Hehe!
