  1. This book is one of the more serious books I’ve read so far this year. I really like the character and how complex it gets. I also like the writing style, and how it goes from the past to future, past to future. It makes you want to continue to read. I also like the way the author handled the religious aspects. It definitely has the feel of a winning book.
