Few first novels receive the kind of attention and acclaim showered on this powerful story - a nationwide bestseller, a critical success, and the first title chosen for Oprah's Book Club. Both highly suspenseful and deeply moving, The Deep End of the Ocean imagines every mother's worst nightmare - the disappearance of a child - as it explores a family's struggle to endure, even against extraordinary odds. Filled with compassion, humour, and brilliant observations about the texture of real life, here is a story of rare power, one that will touch readers' hearts and make them celebrate the emotions that make us all one.

I've just begun my mission of trying to read all the books on Oprah's Book Club list & this was her first pick. I'm not exactly sure why. Maybe if I read as fast as she does I could feel the flow of it but because I am a relatively slow reader (thanks to my 10 month old) I didn't feel the "oomph" or the "wow" that should make a Book Club list. It started out without any profanity and then one of the author's youngest characters just started throwing it around, which wasn't totally necessary. The book was ok or just average in my humble opinion. I will see if Oprah & I have similar tastes in books as I move on to book #2 on her list.
