    I am not a Baldacci fan.r read another of his books But this is not characteristic of his legal thrillers This is a beautiful story about 2 children learning what is really important in lifed it s NOT money I ve heard that in many places this is becoming required reading at the junior high high school, level and it should be It would be most impactful for this age I loved it and will remember it long after I forget many of the other books I have read I wish everyone would read this book It s on [...]

    Everything about this book is terrible The writing is sloppy once you ve written 800 books, do you get a free pass on editing , the plot is predictable and contrived, the characters are flat, and the theme of belief in the face of despair is bludgeoned in with no finesse Spoilers Ahead Kind of This book is so predictable it d be hard to spoil The whole storyline is weak, but the ending is almost fantastically ridiculous The previously comatose mother wakes up saves the day in the courtroom a plo [...]

    I laughed and I cried mostly cried I would not typically read this type of book, but this story of hope and triumph of the human spirit had me hooked to the very end It was well written the characters were deep and engaging and the setting beautifully described.This is the story of Louisa May Lou Cardinal a precocious 12 year old from New York Her father is a famous albeit underpaid writer and she has a caring mother and a younger brother named Oz When the whole family is in a car accident that [...]

    There are a lot of books which make you feel things sometimes happy, sad the other times, and much Then there are some books which grab you by the scruff, shake all emotions out of you and refill you with a new experience of things which you never felt before.This is one of those books for me.I won t dare to say this book is perfect This is a story of a struggle, of how humanity works, of how you should live, of how you can improve, and I can go on listing things which the book very subtly touc [...]

  6. Jeannie

    I really enjoyed this book I loved being transported to another time and place I loved the characters and the writing made me feel as if I was there The place smelled of coffee, wood smoke, and baking fruit pies Umbrellas for sale hung from the ceiling There was a bench down one wall, and three swivel chrome barstools with padded green seats were bolted to the floor in front of a waist high counter Glass containers filled with candy rested on the display cabinets There was a modest soda and ice [...]

  7. Maureen

    This was a complete departure for Baldacci and I really enjoyed it He showed a completely different side of him and his writing skill were shine I cried, and learned about the hardships of people living in the nountains of Virginia just before WWII, with no power and hard life farming ENJOY

  8. Leah Weiss

    I really enjoyed this book because it was set in a place I hold dear in my heart Appalachia A good read, for sure.

  9. Christine

    Really a touching story and a stark departure from his normal books This tells of life in the mountains of Virginia and appreciation for the simple life.

  10. Dan

    TLDR David Baldacci read To Kill A Mockingbird and thought he could write the same book just as well He was wrong You ve got to remember that these are just simple farmers These are people of the land The common clay of the new West You know morons Gene Wilder, Blazing Saddles Apropos of nothing, I ve been thinking of Italian Western epics a lot lately, so I thought I d do this review with a Sergio Leone flavor.The Good In truth, I enjoyed Wish You Well than I thought I would David Baldacci is [...]

  11. Jessica

    I ve never read any other David Baldacci books, so I can t comment on how this is a departure from those plots, even though it s very obvious that it is.The story itself is well written, with two main children characters who are forced to grow up and learn to rely on each other after they are faced with tragedy They move from the city to a rural town in Virginia, where they first meet their Great Grandmother, the woman responsible for raising their father.The story follows the two children, Lou [...]

  12. Barbara Seda

    This is really a hard review for me to write mostly because those I know who have read it liked it and most of the reviews I have read loved it I just don t understand WHY I feel like I did not read the same book.First, I think that it did not help that I read this book at the same time we were reading To Kill A Mockingbird I do feel like this was a poor homage to To Kill A Mockingbird on some level two precocious kids, court room drama, evil protagonist Sadly, David Baldacci is no Harper Lee He [...]

  13. Tina

    I am going to make this one short and sweet I have never read anything by David Baldacci before as the only books I saw by him seemed to be legal type books which I don t read much of But after seeing Wish You Well on the shelf at the local library, it sounded like a book I could not pass up Because I really didn t know what I was in for, the first chapter or so didn t have me convinced, but once I got to about the third chapter I was totally captivated This was such a beautiful story I can t ev [...]

  14. Camilla

    Halfway through I thought I would have to put the book down forever forever ever yes forever ever because it felt like the book was taking a godly turn a.k.a a Milla will put down the book forever ever turn, because I really don t want to read about how God saves everything, because, yeah, I don t do sci fi, okaay Anyhow The book is about a sister and brother who lose their parents in a car wreck, and gets sent to live with their great grandmother on a mountain Well, they lose their father, and [...]

  15. Ashley

    Wish You Well.This is a book that made me cry, and pulled at my heart, but at the same time made me smile and really appreciate what I have before I loose it The emotion in this book was powerfully written and motivating It s about an everyday family, everyday people who loose everything, but slowly learn to live in their new world and cope to the emotional turmoil that has happened upon, a young brother and sister I m glad that I was encouraged to read this book, with this book s setting being [...]

  16. Kellie

    Wonderful book about a girl and her brother who get sent to her grandmothers in the Virginia Mountains after her father is killed in a car wreck and her mother goes into a catatonic state Very different from what Baldacci usually writes but very enjoyable It is 1940 and the accidental death of their father sends two children, Lou and her younger brother Oz, along with their invalid mother, from New York City to the rugged mountains of southwestern Virginia to live with their great grandmother, L [...]

  17. Sammy

    Not going to lie, I didn t really have high expectations for this book Perhaps if I didn t it wouldn t have been as good as I thought it was You know how that happens You set yourself up for something really great and then end up being disappointed when it s not as good as you thought it was going to be Well, whatever, with Wish You Well I was not disappointed.The only problem with the book was that it was a little clich d at times, not a big deal, but a little annoying Most common clich was tha [...]

  18. Michael Dipietro

    Alright, I m not going to be eloquent about it, but I HAVE to add my two cents because there are just too many glowing reviews of this book It is so so sooooo cliche, every plot device comes straight out of made for TV movies, which several reviewers have commented Makes me think of Umberto Eco s essay on Casablanca, The Cliches are Having a Ball, because the whole thing is a mishmash of courtroom drama and wistful long lost simple life tropes The ending is ridiculous I think I have an extra big [...]

  19. Annet

    This is not your usual Baldacci, legal and crime writer It s a story about two kids, 12 year old Lou and 7 year old Oz, who loose their father in a car accident in New York area, leaving their mother in a coma.They move to their great grandmother Louisa to live with at her Virginia Mountain farm Quite another life, to get used to, and on top of that Louisa s farm is threatened by gas companies who try to take over her land.Entertaining, easy to read, good feel of the times, culture and the mount [...]

  20. Carol

    Precocious 12 year old Louisa Mae Cardinal lives in the hectic New York City of 1940 with her family Then tragedy strikes and Lou and her younger brother, Oz, must go with their invalid mother to live on their great grandmother s farm in the Virginia mountains Suddenly Lou finds herself coming of age in a new landscape, making her first true friend, and experiencing adventures tragic, comic, and audacious But the forces of greed and justice are about to clash over her new homed as their struggle [...]

  21. Shrikanth Venne

    Again one of the classic book of David This book is about cardinal family living in Virginia mountain The book is rather slow in the starting which is because author has tried to build up the story for a classic climax The book is very fast towards the end specially after the death of Jack diamond Skinner one of the character in the book overall a superb Goodread.

  22. Tara

    This is a heart felt story about people, about family Lou and her younger brother Oz find themselves alone as their father has passed away and their mother has entered a catatonic state They head up the hills in Virginia to live on the mountain with their great grandmother Louisa, whom they have never met, but heard frequently about from their father s stories Their experience there is filled with trials, opposition, danger, learning, growth, understanding, friendship, love, and faith I grew so [...]

  23. Jaime

    This was a sweet story about a couple of kids that are given hard knocks than they deserve I normally don t like it when authors switch genres see James Patterson, Patricia Cornwell , but this was wonderful writing from Baldacci The ending is a little sugary sweet fairy tale ish, but it s forgivable.I felt a little bit of an extra connection to this story because it is set where I live I m not quite in coal country, but I m on the cusp of it People around here hold on to their way of life as fi [...]

  24. Shannen

    Reviewing books is not my forte, so all I will say is that I enjoyed this one than I had thought I would at first The first couple of chapters I was, through tears of heartache, wondering what I had just gotten myself into So, in order to calm my troubled heart, I read the end first At least enough to enable me to keep reading And I m glad I did keep reading and read the end first It was a touching tale It read very easily and was captivating I stayed up until after 2am reading it last night an [...]

  25. Cindy

    Lovely, homespun and poignant tale of mountain folk and simpler times and ways Probably the kind that would survive and prosper in dystopian times Well narrated some done by the author This isn t like authors usual story Thoroughly enjoyable for any age and most genre lovers Highly recommended.

  26. Roberta

    UGH I ve never read anything else by David Baldacci, so I can t compare this to his usual writing What I can say is that I thought the whole book was hokey from the annoying dialects to the improbable situations and far fetched solutions.

  27. Majo"s Library.

    Baldacci, who wrote The Camel Club saga the legal thriller among other things, has a very interesting voice I enjoyed this book and thought the characters were well developed The plot line was interesting, with lots and lots of emotional and physical baggage.

  28. Samantha Pincus

    Throw that cheesy Vampire down the stairs, while you re doing that, toss this one as well You will not ever get these hours back in your life

  29. Asghar Abbas

    A departureand what a departure it wasa book about books, love of writing, and familyfacing everything as oneand standing together

  30. CynthiaA

    So I did like this story I happily read the whole thing, and there were things about it I liked It was a fast, easy read I loved the character of the grandmother, Louisa, she struck me as the most authentic But the story was overly sentimental, the writing was forced, the villainous characters seemed cartoonish, and the young people didn t seem all that young, except for Oz, who seemed too childish and then suddenly, too adult I see that lots of people love this book, so maybe I am too critical [...]
