When Crickets Cry by Charles Martin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I really enjoyed this book. Although it was rather predictable from the beginning, it was one of those books that kept me turning pages, impatient for what I thought was going to happen to happen. I don't think the point was to not be predictable. Also, there was a past story line that was revealed bit by bit that always kept me guessing, and once I reached the end, I wanted to re-read bits of it to see how it all fit together.
The story has so much heart to it, is well written, and really draws in the reader. I LOVED all the literary quotes throughout the book. Books like this always make me wish I was better at memorization so I could just spout off the greats like Shakespeare and Longfellow whenever I want to.
Also, this book made me cry, which always earns a book an extra star :)
