Good book but not true...
Read for a wonderful reminder of His love through ANY circumstance. However, the Bible continues to remain true and offers the best and only guide for our lives.
So read for a great story, but remember this is not a true story. You can google the author for his website where he explains this story is not real.
Just a heads up, this book can get pretty dark with some lighter moments in between.
So disappointed, not at all what I expected (murder mystery). I did not want a sermon and I certainly did not want to be misled into one. I am sure the author thought he was clever. Incredibly patronizing and uninteresting. I've never abandoned a book so quickly.
I never thought I would ever say this about a fiction novel; The Shack was life-changing! Young offers a refreshing change from the typical “I talked to God” book; and believe me, I’ve read them all. I love the story, the characters, the writing style; well… it would be easier to say there’s nothing about this book I did not like.
I’ve noticed that every parent of an angel has their own story, and the grief process is different for everyone; however, the death of every child changes the parent’s life in a huge way. Personally, I found The Shack to be an extremely therapeutic read; it will benefit anyone who had lost a child. In MOST cases, families who were not faithful before the loss, become extremely faithful after. On the other hand, the faithful families’ relationship with Christ is strained with anger and a newfound loss of connection and trust.
I lost a baby in late 2012, and since then, I’ve personally struggled with loss of connection with Christ, as a result of anger and fear. I have become consumed with finding the answer to the question everyone asks when a child is lost; WHY? I’m NOT going to say this book will offer the answer to the big question; but it will help those grieving see the bigger picture.
I’ve shared a LOT of personal information in this review in hopes of helping other “Angel Parent’s.” I can’t end this review without sharing my favorite part of this story; when God tells Mack the Bible was not meant to be a book of impossible rules, it is simply a picture of Christ. AWESOMELY PERFECT!
I absolutely LOVED this book and give it a HUGE 10 stars out of the available 5 Boundless stars! Yes, I created FIVE EXTRA Stars just for this book. Can I do that? ...Beth
