Great Reads - Morris Philipson's Somebody Else's Life

I'm not quite sure what to say about this book except. read this book! It's not often that I come across a piece of fiction that has me sitting on the edge of my seat and leaves me wanting more. Somebody Else's Life did just that. It's the story of two people finding each other and... the end. Philipson doesn't wrap the story up in a nice neat little bow. He leaves it hanging off the edge of a cliff. The first thing I did upon finishing it? I called a college friend of mine (who also happened to be the author's daughter) and asked her when the sequel was coming out. The story just couldn't end where it did. What happened to them?

I own two copies. A hardback (boy was that hard to find, and it's even signed) that never leaves my sight and a paperback for reading so I don't wear the nice copy out! It's safe to consider this my favorite book.
