I thought this was a great work of fiction for a seemingly religious book. It was heartbreaking at times and funny at times. It made me think of things differently, especially judgment, how I and everyone judge people, things prior to really knowing who or what they are really about, I guess you could say snap judgments. I think about this book all of the time and will never forget it. I originally read this on my B&N nook but after finishing it I went out and bought myself a copy for my bookshelf. This book was recommended to me by a co-worker and the reason I read it was because of her glowing reviews about the book and the many people she recommended it to and how it affected those people. Great Read!!
