it was ok
Read in August, 2008

Ay yi yi..ok, no more Jodi Picoult books..I always say that and then end up reading more...I WANT to like her books...and they always have sooo much potential...then, always...always always...they disappoint...I was especially excited about this one because of her latest interveiw she talked about this book and how it's her favorite and most challenging so far because of it's ground breaking subject matter...

Stigmata? Are you serious Jodi? Ay yi yi. This book wasn't so much about having and excercising faith as it was embracing fantasy and calling anything and everything "religion" and a call to embrace all ideas about God as relevant and true...sigh.

I DO like Jodi's characters though,the Ian Fletcher atheist characte was charming, but I was really hoping for some "come to Jesus" moment for him after his experience with his brother. HAHAHAAha Oh well...

Melissa When I should be reading the bible (haaa)

At night after the girls are asleep and/or during my lunch breaks at work. I'm a nerd and love to read...

I'm also preparing to write MY great novel by consumming lots of books by my favorite writers...

I'm in love with Ann Patchett and Jodi Picoult right now.

Oh, and the new Ann Rice Jesus book was a bore...not nearly as endearing and exciting as the first one.

When you gonna write your Jesus book? ;-)

I know, I know, after SCA....

Jennifer Blaske That's exactly how I feel -- I kept getting drawn in by the premise, but the execution always bugs me at least a little.
