This is by far the best fiction book I’ve ever read in my life. Nothing else I’ve read even comes close to how great this story is. If you have a little time left before the summer reading comes to a close, I highly recommend picking this book up! It is pretty long, but it is worth the investment of time for the payoff!
I’m bummed because my summer reading is already over and I still have a stack of books left. I just got the syllabus for my fall module class in Seminary – I can’t believe it’s time to start studying already. It started me thinking about how much I love to read and what books I’ve enjoyed in my lifetime. I’ve read everything Hemingway has ever written – I recommend getting a hold of hiscomplete works and just diving in. Same thing with John Irving, though I haven’t yet read his last one, I’ve read all of his others. You can’t go wrong with Buechner, Annie Dillard, Fitzgerald or Charles Dickens. I’m pretty lame in that I’ve never read much Tolstoy but he’s my next fiction foray if I ever get a life.
Top 5 fictions books I’ve ever read in order:
A Prayer For Owen Meany – John Irving
The Sun Also Rises – Earnest Hemingway
Son of Laughter – Frederick Buechner
The Beautiful & the Damned – F. Scott Fitzgerald
Great Expectations – Charles Dickens
