There were some really interesting thoughts in this book, but I didn't feel like I connected with them very well. This book is a sort of a memoir of a road trip from Texas to Oregon, and Donald Miller talks about how much it sucks sometimes to be self-aware, to be asking 'why' questions instead of just 'how' questions. That I can relate to. Lots of the ideas in this book have to do with growing up and, to use a term I really hate, "finding yourself", and I can relate on that level. But some of the questions themselves are not questions I relate to. Wow, could I write a review that's any more vague?
Also, the road trip takes place in a VW camping van. I have a VW Superbeetle, so I could totally relate to all of the car problems and found them incredibly funny.
