This weekend I read The Shack...finally. I generally don't like to read the books that "everyone is reading." Stubborn, I guess. I'm sure I've missed some good books because of this -- but I've also avoided some awful ones.
So, I've heard a lot about this novel. Some of it was just plain inaccurate. Some of what I heard confuses me now that I've read the book.
I find it fascinating that I know dozens of people who have read it and NONE of them gave anything away that "ruined" the read for me. That is so very uncommon. People are always ruining books and movies by their careless talk, especially when they've been impacted as so many seem to have been by this book.
I'm not going to talk about the details of this story either.
I found it a simple, wonderful, difficult, blessed, delicious, complicated journey. I look forward to reading it again.
