it was ok
bookshelves: book-club, fiction

Ugh... on one hand I loved the symbolism that filled 95% of this book, but on the other hand, it got so old and I felt myself wanting to scream, "Enough already!"

There were a lot of terrific quotes one could pull from this book, and it definitely will make a fantastic book club discussion. But to sum it up - it's all about the faith, power, and courage we all have within us to pursue the path of "personal legends". So if you like self-help, deep thinking and philosophical type of books, this will be up your alley! But not mine...
