Ever have a book that you wish didn't end, because you love the characters so, so much?  This is The Silver Linings Playbook for me.

Once again, I crawled out from whatever rock I must live under, because I didn't know about this book until I watched the Oscars and discovered that it was nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay.  (True confessions, I don't read New York Times Book Review, and I'm thinkin' that I should.)

(Special note: you don't have to like football to love this book.  Yes, there's a football helmet on the cover.  Don't think it's "a sports book."  It's not about athletes, but it IS about how people can connect with each other through a common interest, when they would never "connect" in any other way - from total strangers, to a father and a son.)

It's rare to read an "inner voice" written as convincingly as this.  I sort of forgot that I was reading.  But at the same time, you are reminded again and again that it's a quirky, not-quite-healthy mind.
