it was amazing
Read in July, 2006

This is the only Anne Rice book I've ever read. I've tried reading others but they didn't hold my interest -- so I'm open to suggestions about that. Anne Rice is definitely an interesting person with an uncommon point of view but I tried not to think about that while reading this book because the book itself is pretty amazing. I don't see this as a religious book at all just because millions of people consider the main character to be their saviour. There are a lot of other characters in a lot of other novels I consider to be my saviours in one way or another.

I'm a sucker for stories about a child growing up and discovering his specialness and gifts which is what this book is about. This book is so beautifully written that it turns a common story into something poetic and universal.

Also, my Christian childhood might have something to do with why I love it so much too. I appreciate all the details and research that went into creating the time and place and the making characters with sympahtetic attitudes and situations.
