it was amazing
Read in November, 2011

When the 1,000 page book arrived from Amazon, I was feaful. Another successful author had lost the ability to edit himself, and had no one around him brave enough to criticize. I was wrong. This was a long, rich, journey of a book, and I had tears in my eyes as I turned the last page.

O'Brien tends to write about the journey of the faithful in a world where faith is marginalized, or actively resisted. This book has his most well-developed protagonist yet - an imperfect, self-absorbed man lead unwillingly toward a richer life, by discovering that the only complete heart is a broken one.

A great read, highly recommended.
