I became excited when Moyers identified you as a skeptic who questions everything. I actually put down my fork and stopped chewing my pasta fazool. I question everything, and I find that makes me very lonely. If you want to talk about Islam and terror, for example, you know that the Politically Correct, self-identitied "Patiots" won't allow any critical statements about US petro-dependency. Abortion, euthanasia, gay marriage: people bring so many agendas to these matters that real, probing quest

As I neared the end of Danusha Goska's Save Send Delete, I started pondering what rating to assign it. I thought I would give it four stars, but when I finished the last page and my Kindle prompted me for a rating, I found myself giving it five. This is not a perfect book, and if five stars imply perfection, I apologize -- but it is a fascinating, moving, and profoundly thought-provoking work, and I was quite reluctant to admit it was over. (I am now rereading a book I could recite in my sleep,...more
Save Send Delete is an epistolary novel for the digital age. Mira is an adjunct professor at an American university (read poorly-paid, insecure). She sees a well-known pundit on a TV show expounding the case for his own atheism and e-mails him. Her e-mail is witty, combative and insulting, comparing their relevant statuses, and insisting on her right to equal time to present her own case as a questioning, deeply spiritual Christian. To her amazement, he replies.

What follows is a developing relat...more

I'm not particularly a fan of epistolary style writing, especially when you are reading only from one persons angle. I found that although I was frustrated that I didn't know exactly what Rand was writing to Mira, it made me think, and look between the lines and use my imagination. I can't actually remember the last book I read, if any, that has made me truly concentrate on what the author has written/not written. She has inspired me to go and read all the references, I actually googled Rembrand...more
One of the most unique and amazing reading experiences I've ever had.
I loved this book. I found it to be un-believably faith affifrming, moving, emotional, and un-expected. Ms. Goska's stories captured me so completely right from the start and made me look at myself and how I live out my faith. Without giving any spoilers, I was surprised by what she reveals towards the end of the book, not that it has a 'twist' conclusion, but it was truly un-expected. She is a survivor and I am inspired by her to be a better Christian, a better Catholic, a better person. She is...more

I enjoyed I enjoyed the apologetics, the stories, and the way Ms. Goska relates several religious traditions with the Catholic faith.

Mira is a fascinating character, someone I could listen to over a bottle of wine. Her adventures are fascinating, her life hard, yet beautiful and full of amazing experiences.

The ending was a bit of a comedown; however, there is a lot to mull over.
Excellent and original book. Very highly recommended reading.
There are some books that you pick up, read, think, "that was nice," and go on with your life. Then there are others that capture your imagination all the way through and make you wrestle with questions long after you put it down. Save Send Delete is decidedly one of the latter.
Even if I were gifted with the kind of mind that could follow the painstaking, philosophical steps Thomas took to justify belief in God, I would not believe in God because of Thomas' steps. ... I'm of the lower orders. I
Still mulling this one over. Some very insightful sections, a window into a life that is far from my own experience. I read it all at a dash in three sittings partly because it's not broken up into parts - just one long series of emails. It's not my kind of ending, but how else could it end? The story is seems to be a revelation of the building of genuine intimacy but's not.
The author of this autobiographical book is a professing Catholic. She has experience, both lively, honest faith...more

I'm very excited to read this! It's a new story for myself and I hope I will have a chance to read it :)
I have mixed feelings about this book. Have changed my rating once (4 stars to 3) but it could go down or up again from here. Some great food for thought mixed with less edifying material. I'm glad I read it, but I am not sure I'd recommend it.
Wow I have not disliked a book in a long time, but for me the format of emails was nauseating and boring, some confessional like truth but once again I could not get into this.
