The Dive from Clausen's Pier reminds us how fragile our lives are and how quickly they can be divided into before and after. It begins with a disaster that could happen in anybody's life, and leaves us to asking what we know about our deepest allegiances. Elegantly written and ferociously paced, emotionally nuanced and morally complex, The Dive from Clausen's Pier marks the emergence of a prodigiously gifted new novelist.More
Alex Award Winner, 2003
"This is a densely enveloping book, presented with uncommon assurance for a debut novelist. And it succeeds in raising profound moral issues within the context of ordinary life." (New York Times)

thoughtful, heart-wrenching, beautiful
I felt like her voice perfectly fit the character. You could hear the indecision and uncertainty as she dealt with this new path in her life.
I probably would not have read/listened to this book if I hadn't been pulled in by curiosity regarding the narrator. However, I'm so glad I was. I loved this story. It pulled me right in, I felt like it was floating through her life. I felt every pang of worry, guilt, heartache, panic, anxiety, love - all of it. It was wonderful and I was sad when it was over. Scarlett Johansson did a wonderful job.
Interesting but not fascinating!
