Palisades Park by Alan Brennert

Palisades Park

I enjoyed this book and its characters. It was not a fast moving book, but it kept my interest throughout. I wanted to know what happened to the characters.

I really enjoyed this book. The storyline was excellent and the dry humor was great. This is not a story to read quickly; lest you miss the bits of writing that make a well written book.

I started to skim this book; then found that skimming still didn't elicit new information so I skipped to the end and still nothing really changed. I do not recommend this book.

This was a very touching book. Bring the facial tissue when you read. Anyone who is in a tough relationship or could see it in their horizon should read this book. And everyone else as well.

This book told a families story. There wasn't an epic stand-off or a overall conspiracy. Just a story - it was told well.
