Wow, this book is one of my genre. While reading your review Amagine, it reminds me of my grandpa. I can't appreciate him in my younger days but later As I grow older , I realize how blessed am I to have him but he is gone.

This book reminded me of my grandparents as well. It makes you appreciate them more.

I've occasionally ignored the Tattered Box, but this great review confirms my unfair treatment to it.

Wow! Beautiful review. I love your review. The quotation you wrote from the book made it all the more interesting. I am definitely going to read this book.
What is the most special thing I did today- I was MYSELF. Happy and in love and unapologetically myself.

What a great review for such a wonderful book! Since all my four grandparents have long died, your review brought some tears to my eyes...how much I wish I could see them once again and tell them that I love them!

As I read your review, I pondered the many stories my grandparents told me. I appreciate the stories so much more now than I did when I was a teen.

I really liked the introduction to your review. I'm tempted to read the book. Grandparents are so special and there's always so much I wished I asked them when I was younger but they are no longer around.
