This book was a little on the bizarre side, but a much better read than I expected when I picked it out at the library. I was looking for something fun and easy, and the title made it sound like a typical chick-lit type mystery. It most definitely was not that! What it was is still a little hard for me to pinpoint... a surreal yet well-written fun murder mystery, maybe? Just doesn't sound right, does it?!
This is by far one of the best missionary biographies I've ever read. Darlene tells her story in a quiet, humble way that captures you and never lets you go. She never gives details of the tortures she went through while in the Japanese prison, just of the times she weeps and tells God she can't go through that again--and yet He gave her the strength she needed each time. She doesn't sugar coat the times she despaired, but God's hand is shown mightily each time. I had the privilege of watching her tell this story on video. The book sounds exactly like her. I wept many times while watching her tell her story, and I wept just as many times reading this book. A touching, convicting, awe-inspiring story of a woman who gave all for God. I cannot recommend this highly enough!
I'm a bit ashamed to admit it, but this is really my favourite Graham Greene book. I love his short stories but almost all the other novels have been way too masculine for me. This one is so gorgeous and intensely romantic, and way better than the movie.
This is one of my all-time-favorite books. Ender is a Third. His parents were allowed to have three children, one move than the limit of two, due to their potential of producing a genius. Being a Third makes Ender special in unwanted ways and a target of other children. But Ender charges through each challenge put forth no matter how emotionally and physically difficult it is for him. Ender is a character who has always given my strength because he had to deal with everything alone. But through it all, he develops friendships just by virtue of his integrity and loyalty. Of course, there is the whole plot of the Buggers impending attack of the world!
For me, this book is a consuming read. I haven't actually finished it yet because it takes so much out of me. But the story of the Buddha has totally helped me in understanding the dharma and my own personal practice. Maybe that's why it's taking so long for me to get through. I'm studying it, not just reading it.
