Read from March 06 to 12, 2011

The overzealous tone ruined this book. This book will appeal to only the most evangelical of Christians, if even to them. The story jumped needlessly (every paragraph or 2 between the main characters) which critically destroyed the ease of reading this book. Then it decided to get overly preachy (I mean beyond what it already was) on about page 390. This COULD have been a much better book...if the much of the theology and gospel hymns were left out. I can honestly say it HAD promise, and the young man taking responsibilities for his actions could have been done without all the tedious moralization. This COULD have been a great story, alas, it was not.
