Jeremy Full of Grace by Greta Cribbs
I don’t read the blurbs on books because I like to be surprised and WOW I was surprised by this unique little tale. This original Sci Fiish/Dystopianish story is definitely different from others as it is a mash of the two with a dose of religion mixed in. The story is told from several different POV’s which gives us more depth to the characters and the story as a whole. Greta has done a good job of pulling it all together and giving us something fresh and enjoyable.

Jeremy, Full of Grace is an interesting story looking at a world where society has broken down and faith and community is all we really have left. No one true religion is presented however each character has a choice to make regarding their beliefs and what truly matters to them. I really enjoyed this read, it was extremely well written, and I was easily lost in the story. While it posed an unbelievable plot it was presented in a way that made me really think about what is important to me and ask myself what would I do in the same situation? I recommend this book.

This book was definitely a bit different from my normal reads and I wasn’t sure if I would like it but I was surprisingly intrigued by it. This story had my attention within the first few pages and I found it very hard to put down. This book was not only interesting with the religious twist but it was so entertaining and I simply could not wait to hear about what happened next. After reading this book I can say that I am interested in diving into more books from this author.

I went into this book blind I’d had a quick scan of blur. I have to say I was pleasnet suprised with the written style. Jeremy oh wow he goes through so much. I do enjoy how the chapter and characters we are introduced to have a few each so we can see things from them side. These all interwein with each other and it works very well.

I enjoyed this book. This is an author that I never hesitate to pick up. Her books pull me in from the first word and are well written. I enjoy how the author’s use of details gives her stories a realistic feel. Her characters are relatable and keep you turning pages. This book is no different. This is a story about Leslie and her search for faith and humanity. She takes you on a journey of science fiction and so much more. What she finds is a young boy who seems to have a child in him. Now she finds herself in a duty to save the said child and humanity. This is a faster paced story that really has a lot going on but the author does a great job of writing where it is easily read. This is a great story that I would highly recommend. It is worth the pick and the journey Leslie takes you on.

Jeremy Full of Grace by Greta Cribbs is a very inspirational sci-fi

One youngster gives a ray of light in a fading world. Midwife Leslie wanders the countryside eight years after a pandemic destroyed most of the world’s population, leaving the survivors barren, looking for signs that humankind may yet have a future. She had no idea that indication would come in the form of Jeremy, a seventeen-year-old Catholic lad who claims to have been pregnant after a vision from the Virgin Mary.

Leslie, an atheist, is suspicious of Jeremy’s narrative, but she can’t reject what the physical facts and her trained eye tell her: Jeremy is clearly carrying a kid within his body. There are doubts about Jeremy’s account of events, but even as Leslie wrestles with her own conflicted sentiments about religion, she knows she has a job to fulfill: ensuring the safe delivery of this kid who may well be the endangered human race’s final chance.

I loved this story and the concept of it as well.I loved every page of it. Every chapter was exciting.

When an unexplained plague wipes out most of the world’s population, the remaining people are shocked, scared, and for the most part unable to have children. Leslie, an agnostic midwife, travels the country, desperately seeking someone, anyone, who is pregnant. What she doesn’t expect, however, is to meet Jeremy–17 year old boy who appears to be, of all things, pregnant! Jeremy claims he became pregnant after a visit from the Virgin Mary.

Jeremy Full of Grace was an interesting read. Told from several points of view, it gives a sense of a simpler time, without television, radio, cars, and even hospitals. The story drew me in, and I enjoyed it. Similar to the birth of Christ, Jeremy’s pregnancy helped the characters and the reader discover–or rediscover–what Faith is. Strong, independent characters and a focus on God made this a wonderful read. Highly recommend!

I was instantly intrigued by the description, and chose to give Jeremy Full of Grace a shot. I mean, a teenage boy, being pregnant, what in the world?! I had to see how that works… It is the first book I have read by Greta Cribbs, and I couldn’t put it down! Granted, its a short book, but still. It is a weird twist of religion and sci-fi/dystopian, which is such an odd combination, but it worked. The main theme surrounds Catholicism, but it isn’t preachy, and most of the references are common knowledge. I love that she writes about “Them” and “Before” in a context that we understand something is going on, but don’t know all the details. The characters were great. The book is written bouncing around, point of view and timeframe, which was a little weird, but once you have a feeling for the timeline, it is easy enough to follow. I was a little disappointed not all my questions were answered, but it was still a good story. I don’t want to give away and spoilers, so I will leave it at that.

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!

Jeremy Full of Grace by Greta Cribbs is a unique and brilliantly interesting story. From the moment I read the blurb to this book I knew I just had to read it. I had to find out all about this world and if they would find a way to survive.
I thought the author did an amazing job at mixing so many different elements. They are ones that I wouldn’t have necessarily said would go together and yet she has made it work effortlessly. This book really does have a bit of everything in and really just grabs your attention. I didn’t know why to expect at all when I started reading this book but what I got was a fantastic and well written story that I couldn’t stop thinking about even after the book had ended.
