I recently finished "The Shack" (see below) and you know what? I started off really liking the book, although parts of it were quite disturbing and I could barely get up to go to the restroom in the dark by myself. But then it got sort of...meh. Nothing too exciting, nothing really interesting, in fact it dragged on for a bit. What I did enjoy about it was that it provided a simple and clear explanation of the Christian faith, God's love, the presence and purpose of the Holy Trinity, all personified in 3 random characters. So I did feel that I learned something and I don't regret reading it. I would say, read it if you have some time and you want to learn more about Christianity, but it is by no means an exhaustive study/explanation. It actually left me with more questions, but the good kind. Next on my list is "Ballet Shoes" by Noel Streatfeild. This is actually a classic children's story, written in 1937 about three little girls who are raised as sisters but are really unrelated orphans who were taken under the wings of an old fossil collector. The three girls grow up to perform in the theater, but each girl must find the courage to pursue their own dreams. So far i LOVE it!
