    One thought on “Willem's Field: A Novel

    1. Heather Muzik on said:

      Okay, this was a slow one At least in the beginning I actually complained about it Beautiful words but complete stagnation I was around page 15, reminding myself that my 55 page rule was my own rule to break and suddenly it opened up I was not going to be trapped in that truck stop ad infinitum like I had feared And that was when I realized I d been played All those plodding details that Haynes had heavy handedly laid out before me in those first pages, led me to a place where I felt Willem s ma [...]

    2. Melissa Irwin on said:

      Well that was an insight into panic disorders that I haven t read about So many genuinely good people in the book to root for And then the not so good people that seemed to come alive I am not 100% convinced with the couple at the end coming together, but can forgive it since the rest was so wonderful

    3. Chris Wolak on said:

      I could relate to the games people played within their relationships and with themselves It was fascinating to watch various characters begin to tire of their games, see how they hit a wall, and then struggle to learn new behaviors Through finding themselves, they rediscover each other and vice versa I think the novel is a great lesson in how while it isn t painless to live an honest life as in authentic , it is much rewarding and does make life easier in some ways It disturbed me that Sonny le [...]

    4. Lisa Zhang on said:

      It is an easy enough read Easy but slow I had no trouble at all setting it down then picking it back up after a couple of chapters It took me three days of meandering through to finish.The characters where compelling and I enjoyed their development very much The plot was a little lazy but pleasant for a summer read It is a rare thing to find a book exactly as easy to put down as it is to pick up I would not recommend this book as the world is full of truly amazing books but I am glad to have rea [...]

    5. Shirley on said:

      It appears to get off to a slow start the first 20 or so pages , but I am familiar with this author and I trusted her completely In hindsight, the beginning was necessary to set the stage for a perfect book I couldn t lay it down, but dreaded that it would come to an end In fact, the only thing wrong with the book is that it ended.

    6. Elizabeth on said:

      I have just started this book a few nights ago I finished the first chapter in a single sitdown and loved it The above rating reflects what I think so far The first chapter describes the stirrings of an episode of panic disorder in the main character who is sitting in a Texas diner His reactions to visual stimuli in the diner, including an un hygenic waitress, pulled me along with the character There s also some mystery with the character s past, as he sits with an old newspaper that announces h [...]

    7. Joseph on said:

      I found the depiction of panic attacks in the main character naive and unrealistic So much so that it made the rest of the portrayals sound weak as well This book dragged on me After reading chalk town, which I thought was great, this one was a let down I keep imagining that there s an author out there who will win me with consistency How found them yet.

    8. Jonna on said:

      I know I am only midway thru the book, but I am delighted to inform fellow Haynes fans that this book is showing signs of being every bit as good add her previous accomplishments.ed the book late last night and I am thrilled to say that this book is as good as anything Haynes has written It is truly a good read

    9. Diane on said:

      I really enjoyed the characters in this book I didn t know where it was going at first and was sort of put off by the 70s something man with his neurosis who I thought was going to be the main character but as the book evolved I grew to like all of the characters It was a laugh out loud book in some parts.

    10. Kimberly on said:

      A story full of sad characters Made me feel grateful for the childhood that I experienced

    11. Rachel on said:

      Another beautiful book by Melinda Haynes Love her writing style and her funky characters Hope she writes another.

    12. Kathy on said:

      Characters were not compelling and the story dragged until the very end Not one of her better works.

    13. Raquel Martin on said:

      This novel started out pretty slowly, but I was glad I stuck with it The character development was really interesting and the resolution of the relationship issues was touching.

    14. Myleen on said:

      After 2 months of trying to read it and becoming bored I finally finished it It wasn t so bad but not one of my favorites

    15. Andrea on said:

      Brilliantly written, my only wish is that Melinda Haynes were prolific.

    16. Shannon on said:

      After reading the first chapter, I was ready to walk away Tedious It slowly got better Family dynamics, gotta love it.

    17. Karen on said:

      I had a hard time getting into this one After several tries I just gave up.
