We - Michael Landweber The story begins with Ben having suffered a head injury and he wakes up in his 7 year old body back in the past. Once he realizes where and when he is, he tries to convince Binky (his 7 YO self) to save his sister from being gang raped in 3 days. You see, when he wakes up in Binky's body, Binky's mind is still there. So they spend a lot of time talking to each other, although Binky doesn't really understand what is going on. That made two of us.

I did like the idea of going back and getting a chance to redo things in the past. It was interesting how Ben sees things differently as he looked at those long ago events through his adult eyes. One thing did bother me though and maybe it's the mom in me. I was a bit disturbed at details that Ben tells Binky about sex and things related to the subject. I know he is really talking to himself, but I'm not sure I would want to tell my 7 year old self all of that detail. That is a bit young to know those things in my opinion.

I have to be honest, I'm still on the fence about my feelings about We. It is definitely not what I expected. I thought I was getting a sci-fi-ish story. Instead the book was more psychological. There were parts about the id, ego and superego that I really didn't get. I will admit to being confused at times and in the end, I'm not sure if I totally understood what the author was trying to accomplish. The ending left me perplexed as to what really happened. Was it all a dream or did he change the course of history? After sitting on the book for a few days, I'm not sure I can answer that one. In the end, I have to say that this was just an OK read for me. I liked the concept, but not the execution.
