I gotta say, I’m surprised. I picked up this title on a recommendation by another person, and was a bit skeptical. I don’t usually read books centred around religion, but this was honestly… great. Extremely well-written and compelling, the characters are interesting and real, and the book moved at a great pace. I was moved to get to the end to have my questions answered – how did this boy get here? how can he even give birth? What does this all mean?
The mixing in of different sections told by other characters of the past was an interesting detail and made the story much more complex and meaningful. I appreciated that the book didn’t preach to me or tell me what to believe, it just let the story speak for itself, and left the characters to answer their questions for themselves, and come to their own conclusions. There are many great things I could say about this book and the writing, but I would recommend you buy it, you won’t be sorry!
