This was a really good book. Nothing like I expected, but I am really glad I read it. It took me only one evening as it is a really short book. But it is thought provoking and touching even when you would think that it never could be. I think that I wish it were a true story although it wouldn't have been that happy of one, but it certainly shows true desire to find a god and believe in him. I really liked it and highly recommend it.
