A group of friends and I have been getting together for drinks every week or so, and recently started talking about the book The Shack. I hadn’t read it, have no desire to be honest. It is not because it deals with the death of a child, or that it is about faith… it is just that from all appearances, it is not my cup of tea. Perhaps after I have read it I will be able to explain better. All the others there had read it and were quite enthralled and moved and excited by it all, so I agreed to read it so we could discuss it. I picked it up and leafed through the first pages, and already was not liking the writing style… so I downloaded the audio unabridged, and have started listening. It’s not going well. The narration is following the writing style, which I suppose is to the credit of the production. I was hoping for a departure. I will stick with it. Have you read it? Without any spoilers… what did you think?

  1. Holy cow you are back!! I have missed having you write.

    The book took me a while to get into. It was a good book in the end though. It definitely makes you think and had me asking a bunch of questions at the end.

  2. I really disliked the book. As a parent who has lost a child, I find it offensive that the author, who has not lost a child, would try to use that as a way to illustrate god’s love… seriously? It was all too neat and tidy and sooooo righteous. Blech.
