In this extraordinary coming-of-age odyssey, Wally Lamb invites us to hitch a wild ride on a journey of love, pain, and renewal with the most heartbreakingly comical heroine to come along in years. Meet Dolores Price. She's 13, wise-mouthed but wounded, having bid her childhood goodbye. Stranded in front of her bedroom TV, she spends the next few years nourishing herself with the Mallomars, potato chips, and Pepsi her anxious mother supplies. When she finally orbits into young womanhood at 257 pounds, Dolores is no stronger and life is no kinder. But this time she's determined to rise to the occasion and give herself one more chance before she really goes under.… (més)

Wow, looking at the reviews here, I haven't seen this much attacking of a book since Twilight.

I find Wally Lamb a great writer. Many times in the book he would jab you in the funny bone from out of nowhere. I love how he he thrust the reader in the middle of episodes leaving the reader to imagine how things might have happened. Solid 4 stars there.

Now, I'm not overweight, female, and my lone whale watching expedition was rained out (and the boat didn't go out). Without spoiling the book, let's say there are a lot of things Dolores Price experienced that I have no idea what they are like so it would impossible for me to rate how Wally Price related to an overweight girl.

In fact, I cared little for Dolores. In the beginning, she was more just a train wreck as the first guest in a Jerry Springer episodes. Then the mess got messier. She become even more undone. And at arm's length, I continued to watch and wondered where she going and doing.

The book felt like a triathlon as I kept glancing when the train wreck would end. It's a healthy sized book though not anything that I would ask anyone go follow me though.

I liked the flair and sense of humour the main character of the book portrayed. A quirky book. ( )

Hard to believe Wally isn't really a woman. An honest story about the weight of lies. ( )

Great book. Its hard to believe it was written by a man. ( )

I was tricked into reading this. Like the true book snob I am, I have a rule that I will not read any Oprah books. A friend of mine, knowing the rule, suckered me into reading this one without telling me that it was an Oprah book. I found out mid-way through. I think that's why I really liked the book but tired of it towards the end. I'm such a snob. This is the life of Delores Price and better you should read about her life than meet her. Much of it is funny and lot of it tragic and twisted but it works. ( )

Our day will come
If we just wait awhile . . .


—Ruby and the Romantics
Toward dawn we shared with you
your hour of desolation,
the hugh lingering passion
of your unearthly outcry,
as you swung your blind head
toward us and laboriously opened
a bloodshot, glistening eye,
in which we swam with terror and recognition.

—From "The Wellfeet Whale"

In one of my earliest memories, my mother and I are on the front porch of our rented Carter Avenue house watching two delivery men carry our brand-new television set up the steps. I'm excited because I've heard about but never seen television. The men are wearing work clothes the same color as the box they're hefting between them. Like the crabs at Fisherman's Cove, they ascend the cement stairs sideways. Here's the undependable part: my visual memory stubbornly insists that these men are President Eisenhower and Vice President Nixon.
