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 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 the best sort of change... Aug. 5 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
A change from Pike's usual formula, this book will effect a change in you. I first read this book when I was eleven years old, (although it is definitely adult fiction) and have re-read it on occassion in the eight-years since. It is about a girl who claims to be GOD. The narrator receives no proff that she is god, but this is of no consequence. As an avid fan, I have always read through Pike's books barely swallowing the typical horror and mystery escapism, putting in the effort only because I enjoy his clever and non-condescending style. I am really reading in anticipation of the SPIRITUAL, PHYCHOLOGICAL, AND SUPERNATURAL parts in his tales. This book is entirely composed of such parts, a feast for me and I suppose starvation for those who read his books looking for suspence and fear rather than imagination and philosophy.
So if you want to read something that will give you goosebumps, you best find another Christopher Pike novel... unless you're interested in the sort of chills you feel when you've just read something wonderful and more true than the ordinary can ever be. You'll fall in love with this strange woman, Sati, I guarantee.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't Waste Your Time June 12 2000
By yuki
Format:Mass Market Paperback
With all the great ratings (although there are few reviews to start with) I expected a great book. But this is definitely NOT a book that I'd want to give five stars, no matter what. This book is one of those new-agey books that try to become one of the memorable great books, but it ain't. Now that I've suffered through it's few hundred very uninteresting pages, I'm all ready to use it as toilet paper. I won't say that it's the WORST book I've read- there are too many bad books out there to say that- but puh-leeze. Okay, so the girl is god. So happiness is the reason for existing. So what? You think that anyone will CARE? I would have cared if there was a single well-developed character, or an interesting plot. But the characters are all cliches- the main character is a man on the verge of divorcing a wife who just doesn't care about him anymore (or have they already divorced? It's so hard to remember about this bland book) with a cute li'l girl who seems like one of the paper cutouts kids play with. And the beautiful god. Enigmatic (not really) divine (oh, really? I didn't notice) and all that, but not someone I'd care much about. It seems that Pike has tried to write an epic story- but it doesn't read like an epic, nor does it come close. Pike should have sticked with writing teenage thrillers.

5.0 out of 5 stars More inspiring than any spiritual text! Sept. 28 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
No matter what Religion you aspire to, Sati will lift your spirit. Because it is pure fiction it poses no threat to anyone's beliefs, yet the book subtly encourages you to question the interpretations your priest, preacher, etc... has given you. Sati tells us that we all know what makes us happy, and essentially it is doing the "right thing". Too often this is clouded by our busy lives and in order to see what will make us happy we need to revel in silence, look inward, and follow our inner soul. This is the first Christopher Pike book I've read, and I found his insight into spirituality simple and comfortable: the way any truth should feel. I found it similar to "Stranger in a Strange Land" in many ways, but Sati is less complex. The storyline is secondary to the message in Sati, making the philisophical base much easier to pinpoint and mull over. There are many "one-liners" in Sati that could begin some fasinating meta-physical discussions, and I'd love to be in on them! All-around a beautiful book that I will be passing out to my closest friends and relatives with the message that happiness is the reason for existing--what better reason is there?
