I finished it last night and it’s good to be done. I enjoyed it overall, but it had a lot of potential that Lamb pretty much squandered, IMO. I mean no disrespect to the author, I’m just being honest. It’s all I can be. There were some themes (such as mental illness and genuine forgiveness) that felt underdeveloped and sadly lacking.

Additionally, much of the final moments were neatly wrapped up, contrived, and very much reminds me of your typical Hollywood ending. And don’t get me started on (view spoiler)

I am interested in some of Lamb’s other work, but reading I Know This Much Is True isn’t making me particularly anxious to pick them up any time soon.
