    I read the first half of this a month ago and then what with one thing and another couldn't seem to get back to it I was thinking this meant that it wasn't terribly compelling but earlier today when I was sitting in a waiting room with nothing to do finally finish reading it I had to try not to cry in great big heaving sobs even though it would have given all the people who forgot to bring a book something to look atJay
