You may remember that last year I read through quite a few of Mitch Albom's books. He is a Detroit guy (who also runs a non-profit in Haiti) and I always love his writing, so when I saw one of his books (and, surprisingly one I hadn't already read) at the "little free library" on our doggy walk route, I grabbed it. It has been sitting on my bedside table for a few weeks now because books keep becoming available at the library, but when I had a few days and didn't have any books reserved at the library I picked this one up. I've gotta say - I really liked it. I'm not sure what I was expecting, but I felt like it kept me guessing and interested the entire time. Unlike some books where I can predict the plot or outcome, this one had me on the edge of my seat for the entire time. I feel like it was a rather long book compared to the other ones of his that I had read, but I still flew through it in about a day and a half. Despite the name and focus of the story, I didn't feel this was a religious book, so if that is something that would turn you off from reading it I'd still suggest picking it up. I would say, even though it's a novel, it does make you do a little soul searching about what (and why) you believe what you do. I would give it an 8 out of 10.
