Bestseller in Canada? I don't think so. I finally got a copy of this book to see what it's about and was quite dissapointed. Biggest problem is the writing style - simple and not in a good way, boring in every sense of the word....just a total wreck. Simple dialogue, mundane descriptions by the truckload, overdone Christian symbolism, etc.
It's almost as though the author's intention was to write a big and deeply profound book with many "deep", cerebral themes, but ended up mashing that intention with a less-than-commercial, subpar genre book.
Does NOT work for me.
Anyway, judging by the low number of reviews so far, it's obvious to me that most readers have done themselves a favour and steered clear of this one.
I don't usually take the time to write reviews on public forums, but I have to for this one. Ugh. I really hated it. Perhaps the author could benefit from some creative writing programs, because....ugh. Just, ugh.
