Overall, I liked the story. However, it needed some serious editing! It took about 150 pages for me to realize that I had actually seen a movie adaptation of the book. I found the characters odd and compelling and appreciated the discussion of faith belief and miracles. I'm glad I read the book but it definitely took some work to finish it.
