So I thought that The Song was actually a little better than The Singer, but I'm giving it the same rating because three stars is about all I can muster for all but the absolute very best religious work. (See my review of The Singer for why). I thought that the poetry of The Song was about the same or a little better. There weren't as many "wow" moments where I was boggled by the beauty, but there weren't any slogging sections where the poetry seemed to suddenly fall apart either. I definitely t...more

As a reimagining of the Bible, I feel like this series is fascinating as an intellectual exercise but just too weighted down by its reverence for the source material. Kind of difficult to avoid.

I preferred this book to the one that came before, The Singer. I felt like I could better appreciate the author's artistic license.
Not quite as powerful and clear in its message as The Singer, but still wonderful! I read it in a few hours and was much encouraged. Recommended to anyone confused about myths being true.

The Song is a good book. It was a minor downgrade from The Singer. The Song confused me until the last few chapters because I did not know that it took place before The Singer.
i just reread this for the first time in twenty years, dropped the stars from 6 to three. much more obtuse than i remember from the first half dozen times i read it.
I loved The Singer. The Song was a little bit harder to understand and at times I had trouble following what was happening, although I knew where it was going.
An allegorical retelling of the story of Acts. Enjoyed more than the first one. Its a quick read, but quite thoughtful. Well crafted.

Almost as beautiful as The Singer (1st book of trilogy). Absolutely beautiful poetry.
So many good things in this book. Woo for round 2 of the Singer!
This wasn't as good as THE SINGER, but it was still fantastic!
