I am not at all regretting having read this. It's a really good book. It didn't leave me with any a-ha moments and while the end sort of fizzled out as I expect it really had to if it wanted to not end corny, it did push me through it nicely. Gets yo ...more

Whew. That was a very good book but hard as hell to read. We don't always know what challenges people face or have faced, and it's pretty ridiculous what some people endure in this life.

Great little read. A good interview and a few good stories. Might have to read more of her now. Also, very reassuring to read how similar her writing experience is to mine... other than the successful novelist part, of course. "My regular drill is to ...more

A worthy sequel to the awesome book The Sparrow. Good sci-fi, good characters, and compelling thoughts about religion, fate and purpose, redemption and forgiveness.

Pretty damn good. Great characters gradually building to a page turner ending. Not as good as Montana 1948 perhaps, but close, and that says a lot. (Montana 1948 was a perfect book, one of a very few I've ever read twice)

A novel? More a series of short stories tied together by the common workplace of the characters. It was all pretty good and toward the end a couple of them had some real emotional punch to them.

“...the bittersweet reminder of life's ephemeral pleasures, of opportunities that pass...These experiences would never be repeated and for that I was sad to see them go. But I also relished in the pricelessness of things so unique. That which can be duplicated loses its gold.”
Kevin Revolinski, The Yogurt Man Cometh

“We are the creators of our lives. We form them from whatever material presents itself.”
Kevin Revolinski, The Yogurt Man Cometh

“As I lay down flat in a drunken stupor next to the porcelain hole in the floor, I thought how interesting it was that "worshipping the porcelain god" in a Muslim country matched their praying style just as it matched the Christian style back home. I also swore never to mix rakı and rum again.”
Kevin Revolinski, The Yogurt Man Cometh

Topics Mentioning This Author

“Of all the preposterous assumptions of humanity over humanity, nothing exceeds most of the criticisms made on the habits of the poor by the well-housed, well- warmed, and well-fed.”
Herman Melville
