This book just washed over me with it's excellent word crafting and ideas. I so enjoyed not being hit over the head with the "spiritual" message of life as a special creation. Even though the main character is a preacher, there is no preaching to the reader, only soft guidance and pleasures of discovering relationships. I also liked how some small part of history was woven into the story and in the end, it was a circle within the story. No wonder it won the Pulitzer award in 2005 - it's a book not to be missed.

agony. No plot line. no action...one of the only books I have ever quit on. I found it because it had been abandoned on an airplane, and now I know why.

I'm an avid reader and thought this would be a good book since it won an award...but I could not get interested in it and finally just gave up on it - never did finish it.

Sometimes I feel that a good story could have been told in a short story format rather than a full length novel. This is one of those cases. For a portion of the book, I thought the author would never get to the point (or plot) of her book. However, the book then suddenly grabbed me and for the last half I had a hard time putting it down. I'm very glad I kept with it!
