The style that the book was written in was not one that appeals to me for reading. A whole lot of internalized thinking. Just not my style.
What I liked:
1. The theme of the book: very much promoted the fact that God loves us. He loves us deeply and cares for us in ways that we can't really understand. He strengthens us. He is not by any means helpless but he does allow us to go through difficult times... and through those times he strengthens us in ways we don't always realize. I have to say, I had such a strong appreciation for the theme of the book and have found myself, since then, pondering more the love of Christ and how I can see it in my life.
2. I found myself pulled into the book about 3/4's of the way through for a while. I wanted to know what would happen. .
What I .... wish had been different.
1. the visions - Biblically visions are always used as a means of salvation. AND true visions now-a-days are often used by God to bring people to him. They aren't close talk to talk, wrap you up in my arms visions as portrayed in this book. So I really struggled through this aspect of the book. Now the book is a work of fiction so some license is to be expected, and if you are the sort to easily look past the vision aspect to the conversation/teaching part...then you may well completely enjoy this book.
2. Everything is sown up neat and tidy. The bad guys die, the good guys have everything work out nice and tidy.
3. Even though I found myself pulled into the book for a while... eventually I found myself not wanting to bother finishing it since it became predictable again, and so what was the point of finishing.
