5.0 out of 5 stars A Hauntingly Beautiful Story, Jan. 17 2010
By 
This review is from: The World More Full Of Weeping (Paperback)
After reading "Before I Wake," I absolutely had to pick up this novella by Robert Wiersema. "The World More Full of Weeping" follows the disappearance of Brian, an eleven year old boy who spends his time exploring the woods behind his home. Brian has always felt apart from the rest world until he meets Carly, a girl who seems to understand him as no one else can. As Brian becomes increasingly preoccupied with the forest and Carly, he begins to travel down the same path as his father years before. As the story unfolds, the parallels between father and son become more apparent, guiding the reader to the climax of the story. Ultimately, the "World More of Full of Weeping" is about alienation and finding where one belongs. If you enjoyed "Before I Wake" I would strongly recommend this novella. The characters are rich and complex and the writing flows easily between Brian and Jeff's point of view.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweetly Compelling, July 26 2011

This review is from: The World More Full Of Weeping (Paperback)
The World More Full of Weeping is a 77 page novella told from two points of view. The first is the view of Jeff Page, as he discovers his son hasn't returned from playing in the woods. The second is that of the son, Brian, as he meets a girl in the woods who shows him marvelous things.

It's a sweet, compelling story of love and loss. And a reminder that doing what you believe is best for someone doesn't usually take into account their own preferences on the matter.
