I liked the 1st person presentation -- it really helped the story along. I liked the descriptions and the concept, especially through the first half to two-thirds of the book or so. The overall message of helping your fellow man was also very apparent.

That all being said, I'm not typically one for religion (personal spirituality, yes -- organized religion, no), but I do like to challenge myself to consider and reconsider the opinions that I form. That was one of the reasons I picked up this book

Tried to read this earlier and it was just not too good. Even tonite, at first I found it a little confusing until about 1/3 of the way into the book. I don't know if it is the brouhaha over the CEO of Chick-fil-a's opinion or what but I must have been in the right frame of mind. By the end, I actually liked it a lot, and I didn't expect the ending the way it occurred, maybe because I was caught up in my own thoughts and wrestling with my own feelings about organized religion and many of the oth ...more
This whole novella is an allegory for salvation through not only belief in Jesus but living the faith as I've heard it called.
I really don't want to tell you anything about it. It was certainly strange and beautiful at the same time. It did get a little confusing during a few discussions of faith. Perhaps I just needed to read it more closely but I don't think so.
If you enjoy Christian writing you will most probably enjoy this.

An interesting story/parable. The use of the story presents how to not just say one is a Christian but the importance of LIVING Christian. I liked the idea that characters are all in different places on their walk but that it is the influence of the Light that draws them and transforms them.
I liked this book more than I would have thought. It seemed like a very strange book on the surface, but as the title implies it is an allegory, an extended metaphore. It was pretty religious on a deeper level, but I still enjoyed it throughly as an extremely non-religious person.

Just keep walking toward the SON for he has called you to do something - A good quick read that holds your intrest. Starts a little slow and for me weird but the allegory comes alive at the middle and end.
it was okay a little too pointedly reglious for my taste.
I just could not get in to this one. I should try it again later on.

Good read, but strange at the same time.
