more theological than I'd hoped — 1 year ago
I am interested in Jay’s story as son of Tammy Fay, but still, this wasn’t a bad book. I’m not invested in his theology and so see the holes. He pretty much admits that the Bible can be used to believe anything at all and thus he advises discarding large parts of it to support his grace theology — so to me, why not just embrace grace theology without the Bible baggage? But hey . . .
mildly interesting — 1 year ago
I always hope to learn more from these types of books than I do. And this guy is not the storyteller that, say, the author of blink is. Still. Interesting stuff.
excellent if convoluted — 2 years ago
it took me forever to read this and, truly, the first thing I really need to do is to read it again to try to figure it out. It was very enjoyable, great characters, totally confusing, dreamily written. And I will read it again, just not right now.

I started reading this book while still in the middle of Winter’s Tale. Winter’s Tale is a difficult read and this one wasn’t, and it seemed interesting, and I thought, oh, good.
Then I got a little further into it and she was constantly saying derogatory things about any Texas neighbor with any character at all. You know, they spit, they are stupid, they have guns.
About a quarter of the way into it, I decided it wasn’t worth it. Boo hiss — you might have had a good story, and you might have had some good characters, if you’d only respected them.
immortal philosophy — 2 years ago
the characters were not well developed or consistent, but it was well acted and interesting to think about.

not so well written but there were some things I needed to think about and be reminded of at this time in my life . . .
immediate but confusing — 2 years ago
The book was far more detailed and factual than the movie, and truly it is a wonderful story. The writing was very immediate and involving but also very confusing and often simply just not well written. I often read a passage three times to figure it out, and too often read it three times and still had no clue what it meant to the story. I kept wishing that the woman who wrote Seabiscuit had written this one too because that was really a great book.
as good as the book — 2 years ago
I really did like the book, and like the book, the movie isn’t perfect. But it is pretty daggone good.
Best quotes (which I do not remember from the book but may well have been there):
-God lives in you, as you.
-Sometimes you have to be thrown off balance by love to live in balance.

these people were infuriating to me for the entire first 2/3 of the book. Stupid, they were. All of them. I suppose they do remind me of how “normal” people would be, but being a person who has been concerned about these sorts of things, about sufficiency, for a long time, well. But they do eventually wake up and in a beautiful way too.
