The Boy Who Met God by Penelope Kahler Swan

Some spoilers


I won this book as part of a Goodreads giveaway. It was a “…just one more page….” type of book, and honestly it was better than I expected. Reading it in the first place was a leap for me, since my usual realms are historical fiction and biographies. I hate not knowing what time period, which location, SOME sort of context, but what usually would have pissed me off ended up turning this more into a mystery. And while I was just looking for

I received this audio version of the book from the author for an honest review. I have to say, I've been thinking how to review this book every since I finished it. When I started listening, I actually started over 3 times because I didn't understand the story from the beginning. Couldn't get a grip on the characters at first but as I continued to listen, my first thought was to try and place the location that the story was taking place. I will say as I continued to listen, I tried to place, ...more

This review is from: The Boy Who Met God (Paperback)
The Boy Who Met God is a rare book. During the time of C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien it was not uncommon to pick up a book, particularly a fantasy or sci-fi novel, and find out by happenstance that it was a Christian allegory. Long gone are those times and writing of that caliber.

I got the Audible version of this book for free from the Author in exchange for a review, which I am always happy to provide. I will be honest, this would not have been a book I would have gravitated towards if I had not gotten it for free, and I would have missed out on a very interesting story. The book is beautifully narrated by Gene Henes and I enjoyed this most unusual sic-fi story more than I thought I would. No doubt because Penelope Kahler Swan knows how to write a great story. It is ...more

You've probably never read a post-apocalyptic Sci-Fi novel like this, but then maybe you have. Once you reach the end of this quirky and humorous, and not without a bit of adventure, book, you'll Know.
I'll admit, this is not my usual type of read, I had a little trouble in the beginning with the different punctuation (capitalization) style. But the adamu and Friday's adventure quickly swept me up. Unlikely heroes, both taking me to someplace surprising, yet familiar. And the weird illustrations

I won this book in a goodreads giveaway, and I can't help but think that receiving the book for free has influenced the other raters of this book. As my students would say, "I can't even."

The first thing I ever wrote was a poem about October. I was seven. I can still recite it. I used to recite it for myself while walking home from school. Whatever it is inside that makes me me was so connected to everything else, outside in the October that was happening while I dreamt my little girl self toward home, reciting my little girl poem. I'm still trying, daily, to capture that feeling. ...more
