Book Description

March 10 2011

I once knew this girl who thought she was God. She didn’t give sight to the blind or raise the dead. She didn’t even teach anything, not really, and she never told me anything I probably didn’t already know.

On the other hand, she didn’t expect to be worshipped, nor did she ask for money. Given her high opinion of herself, some might call that a miracle.

I don’t know, maybe she was God. Her name was Sati and she had blonde hair and blue eyes.

For all who meet her, Sati will change everything. Sati may change everything for you.

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Does God exist? Is she a blonde, blue-eyed woman named Sati, encountered hitchhiking in the Arizona desert where she is picked up by Michael, a long-haul trucker at odds with life? The questions crystallize back in Los Angeles at the trucker's ramshackle apartment, when Sati declares she is the deity and sets about proving it. No miracles, but changes come about for a motley cast: a dying AIDS victim, a drug dealer, a fundamentalist preacher, Michael's estranged wife and their little daughter. Each is attracted to Sati's beautiful simplicity, though they confront and challenge her. When her life is terminated violently, they realize she "had given us a taste of our inner silence, a taste of ourselves." The ancient hope for redemption is recast in this sprightly contemporary parable, the first adult novel from a bestselling author of young adult fiction ( Chain Letter ).

From School Library Journal

YA-- A story of the Second Coming. Sati, a blond, blue-eyed beauty, declares simply that she is God and has come to "play a while." Her story is told by a skeptical truck driver, Michael, who picks up the newly reborn goddess along a desert highway and takes her to his apartment and into his circle of friends. Although God appears as Mother rather than Father in this carefully and sparingly written fantasy, the language and viewpoint are uncomplicatedly masculine. Pike explicates all sophisticated allusions in context, making the book clearly suitable for YAs. Readers should be comfortable with the narrator's voice and psyche, as Michael struggles with his doubts and desire to believe. Sati could be a valuable addition to a growing library of multicultural literature for high school students. Although its characters are not from minorities, it will make a fine introduction to non-Christian religious beliefs, for Sati's philosophy and persona is based on a mixture of Buddhist, Hindu, and other spiritual thought. The essence of her thesis is that "We're all God."-- Marya Andreen, R. E. Lee High School, Springfield, VA

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Book I Have Read In a Long Time July 4 2010
Format:Hardcover
This is by far the best book that I have read in a long time. If you enjoy any of Christopher's books or even if you have ever enjoyed any Bruce Coville Books then this book is for you. I purchased this book to work towards completion of my Christopher Pike collection, the thing that directed me to this book was the comparisons of 'Sati' and Last Vampire 1-6. The Book felt short for me but I think that I just read strong for the first time in a long time.

This book is meant to be an emotional book so absorb yourself into it.

5.0 out of 5 stars After Thoughts June 12 2004
By A Customer
Format:Library Binding
Awesome story! Easy reading and exciting story. I actually thought the story was real. What really caught my attention was that I was looking for something to describe to myself, how to become closer to God, or rather how to find Him within myself to be a true christian, so that not only I can help my teenage children but myself especially. I came across this book and I was hooked on it, within 24 hours, I'd read it and wanted to know if this story did actually happened. The contents of the story is full-on and helped me a lot, I even went as far as telling the story to my mother-in-law. She liked and was amazed at the contents of the story, but she wasn't convinced it was true, only because she knows that no one can never see God in person (as mentioned in the bible in the book of Exodus). Anyway, she loves the story and approved of everything which was told and written in this lovely story. For me personally, I was convinced it was real, I mean the characters. It wasn't until I looked it up on the net, that I realised, it was a fiction, but fiction or non-fiction, this is a great story. It really helped me strengthen my belief in God and helped explained what I needed to know about the inner-self.
I think more stories like this would do a lot of good to our world and give people an opportunity to search for that missing piece of their lives. If it helps a skeptical person like me to seek deeper into the unknown of my inner-self, then I'm sure it will help many more skeptical and non-believers of God out there in this world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Aug. 9 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I find it difficult to summarise how amazing a book this is. Compared to all the spiritual books these days, recent and past this book is on a league of its own.There is only one book in this league. It does not preach, does not lecture but subtly provides guidance, inspiration and happiness in a way no other book, I have read does. It really can be a vehicle for change. Forget the rest, this is easily the best, by far.

5.0 out of 5 stars ONLY BOOK I WOULD RECOMMEND Feb. 7 2003
Format:Library Binding
I have read many spiritual/philosophical books in my life. This is easily the only one I would recommend completely. It touched me in a way none have ever.It is a enjoyable read, a book of real wisdom and one that affects by what is not said but is clearly there.Probably not well known as it is under the children section and few children would grasp the depth , meaning and beauty of its words. If placed in the right section it would be a huge bestseller. It has everything and more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes, life changing. April 24 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
If you read only one book, read Sati.
Read it with a completely open heart and mind. Listen to it. Understand it.
I wish I could afford to buy Sati in great big boxes and hand it out to people. I want the whole world to read it and understand it. I want it to be in every language. I want to learn languages so I can translate it.
Please. Read it.
And if you read two books, read Sati and then Anthem, by Ayn Rand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life Changing Feb. 27 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is one of the most well written novels that I have ever read. It changed my whole perspective on the world and gave a clear sense of what is real, in a world where so much is fleeting. Christopher Pike makes it believable that this blonde, blue eyed girl could be God. There is a lyrical quality to the book that will haunt you days, months and even years after you put it down. It is one of my all time favorite Christopher Pike novels. It's a must read for anyone who has ever wondered what it would be like to meet God. There is no novel that has touched me more, at so many different levels.
