A story about this — 5 years ago
I found this story to be much more poignant than I thought that it would be. The artwork took it from being melodramatic to something that I could relate to. I appreciated the honesty, especially in regards to the religious aspects that pervaded the book. Thompson restated a feeling that I have all too often about how so many Christians are ruining Christianity.
I am not sure, however, of if this book transitions ages well. I believe it may be more of a Catcher in the Rye experience, where you have to read it by a certain age or it is lost to you.
I stayed up until two in the morning to finish this book.
