Jeremy Full of Grace by Greta Cribbs
I will read absolutely ANYTHING this author writes. I love her ability to tell a story and make it seem so real and easy to follow. I find myself picturing every scene and believing everything that is going on. I used to love dystopian novels until some of them turned into more of a fantasy world than how I’ve always looked at the dystopian genre. This hit every mark for me on what I love about a dystopian story.
There was a lot of Catholic religion mixed into this story, alot of doctrine and tradition which was all spot on. It didn’t mean you had to be a Catholic or supremely religious person to get completely wrapped up in this book and this story of this young man. I guess it’s more of just having a belief that there is something that connects us all even if it can’t be explained.
I was completely lost in this book while I was reading it. Could not put it down and felt like I couldn’t read it fast enough. The next thing I knew it was over. It ended too quickly only because I didn’t want to put it down and think of starting another book. I wanted to stay in Ruth and Jeremy’s world a little longer and learn more about how they lived day to day. I loved everything about it and will read it again in the future, maybe a few times.
I can’t wait for more from this author!
