AWESOME book! I loved all three plays but my favorite one was Our Town. I loved the way the author puts you in the character's shoes and makes you feel like you are part of the story. I am not really a person that reads a lot fo plays except when I read them for school but the author Thorton Wilder made me keep reading the rest of his plays after I had to read The play Our Town for a school assignment. Great Book! Grest Story! :)
