This book was provided to me in exchange for an honest review by Smith Publicity. The opinions below are my own. Spoiler alert: If you do not want to know specifics about the book please read the book and not my review.
This book starts out a little slow and there are some parts that read like an English paper (what is going to happen, it’s happening, it happened). However, the main style of writing that follows and surrounds these things is comfortable and enjoyable and well worth reading.
I do prefer a more fast paced book, but that would have been completely out of place in the setting of this book. The story is mostly set in the French quarter of New Orleans, which is nothing if not inviting and moves to the beat of it’s own drum. I wouldn’t ask for it to be any different.
This story was inspirational, heartfelt, and imaginative. Most of the story is autobiographical, but it also has an interesting twist of rewriting history to include time travel, an afterlife encounter and technically a possession.The main thrust of the story is religious and has a powerful message.
I’m not a giant fan of sports and some of the play by play was boring to me, but at the same time it didn’t overshadow the main thread of the story, it just was part of it.
I would recommend this to someone who enjoys a story that encourages team work, community, and hope.
