My mom tried to get my 11 and 13yo interested in reading it. They were completely not into it and I was a little perturbed at my mom when I found out what it was about. She's constantly trying to subvert our decision to not raise them as xtian.

I read it about a year ago and I was one that said it was a good work of fiction based around a probably true event. I don't know the guy...haven't researched police reports.... I loved God as a southern black woman though! LOL Had some good thought provoking moments but I can see how it could mess with some with younger faith if they don't know what they believe solidly.

I couldn't put it down once I started it. I didn't want it to end!

Lynn, I just got finished reading it. I haven't read anything like that in ages. It really made me feel things I hadn't felt in a long time. I had been asked to read it before, but "never got around to it", I guess this was the right time for me to read it. I laughed, cried, got angry, laughed some more, felt envy and a whole host of other emotions. I would recommend this book to everyone.....even those who don't believe in anything.

Read The Shack! Loved The Shack. When I read it last fall in October, couldn't even think of looking of looking at other fiction for months. Made me think like I hadn't thought in a long time. It's still on my bedside table to go back to in parts! Great discussion at my book club, bought copies for my mom and sisters. WOW!
