This is probably one of the best books I've ever read. Very powerful symbolism and subtle metaphors that make you truly explore your own belief system. On top of all that, it is really well written...a real page turner! A great read!

This book is a quick, wonderful read. There are lulls in the 'action,' making you wonder when you're going to get back to the story. You will not be disappointed. And the ending.... I never expected it.

I loved the writing style of this author, can't wait to try out some of his other work. I found myself looking forward to the moments when I could sneak away to be alone with this book. It seemed to drag at the beginning for me, but really picked up when the journey in the lifeboat began. I'm not really very squeamish, but I found myself cringing at some of the stuff that happened. I was rather disappointed by the ending, but all in all a good read.

It came highly recomended to me, but I just couldn't get into it. Maybe that it was just too much religion for me.

For some reason I kept not reading this book even though it was on the best seller list forever. When I finally read it I loved it! It's very unusual but grabs you so you have to keep reading.
