    I'm short on time for this review but man this is the closest thing to a perfect story as anything I've ever readI'm back a few days later to edit my review because I can't stop thinking about this book It might be my favorite I might be in love with this story As the first sentence of the story starts out I am doomed to remember a boy with a wrecked voice well I am tooSPOILERS FROM THIS POINT ON IN THE REVEIWI think I fell in love with book as I read one specific sentence It's at the end of the story when Owen and Johnny are in the temporary bathroom with the children and his dream is starting to unfold I thought I had it all figured out the lunatic kid has the grenade and he's going to try and blow them up But then I read the sentence when Owen looks to Johnny and says something along the lines of WE'LL HAVE ABOUT FOUR SECONDS Maybe I was a little slow to catch on but it was right then that I realized the reason they had always practiced the shot It blindsighted me and I loved it Irving had made their routine practice of the shot so commonplace in their time together that I forgot about even asking what purpose it served being in the storyBut the sentence carries so much power than that At the same time I realized the purpose of the shot it also hit home how Owen had lived his entire life for that momemt He had known his fate his moment and not only did he embrace it he had prepared for it And when it came time to act and live this moment he didn't flinch Just as Owen had lived his life for one specific point and time the power of this story was revealed to me in one perfect sentence It gave me THE SHIVERS
