Bu roman bir ninni gibidir. Ne olmuş? Evet, genel olarak, hiçbir şey hakkında. Yatmadan önce kısa bir süre için yumuşak bir güvenlik hissi, umut, sessiz sevinç ve bir gülümseme verir. En sık, muhtemelen literatürde kullanılan “Asla pes etme” sloganı onlarca başka kitapta çok daha güçlü ve daha iyi açıklanmıştır. Roman için harcanan zamandan pişman değilim.
This book was hilarious. The first image of Jesus sets up the entire theme of the book: humanity and holiness, forcibly intertwined by the sinful yet lovable Biff. Levi called Biff is the best friend of Joshua (the 'accurate' name of Jesus) questions everything Joshua does as only a true friend could: from celibacy to eating bacon, the humor which Biff interjects keeps a epically heavy story light (most of the time). Also fascinating is how this books serves as a survey of Eastern and Western religions/philosophies. Not only do we hear about the bizzarities of everything from Judaism to Hinduism (passing through Confucianism and Buddhism on the way) but we also are given some very nice parables and images which stick in the memory to define those religions/philosophies. All in all a fun book, pretty light and pretty fast and educational too!
I read this book a while ago. I remember it was a quick read for me, and the language was beautiful. I would definitely re-read it.
This sequel was really disapointing :( It looked like the author didn't know what to write and just said everything that passed through her head without any restraint. Everything was overly dramatic and definitely way too weird for me. I wished she would of stopped at the first novel so that we would of been free to imagined what might happen to the two main characters.
