An advanced reader copy of one of my favorite authors

We Are Water: A Novel

We are Water

 By: Wally Lamb

Genre: fiction

Pages: 576

Published: 2013

Read: July

5 out of 5 stars 

One of the many reasons I love Wally Lamb’s novels is his ability to capture the woman’s voice.  I was truly amazed by this craft in his first novel, She Comes Undone and he succeeds again in We are Water.  I feel this novel is his darkest yet and the reader must have a tough skin to continue through it. The story is extremely graphic at times and deals with numerous difficult topics, such as child pornography and same sex marriages.  However, Lamb writes in such a manner that even with the visuals he creates you must read on to see the resolution.   All the characters in this novel are very vivid and I promise you will love some, despise others, sympathize with some and change your mind on others. Lamb plays with your emotions throughout the entire book.  It’s been a long time waiting for another masterpiece by Lamb and he did not disappoint.

Lamb doesn’t have a personal website L
