A Must Read
August 30, 2009 - Kathleen Palumbo
I’m an avid reader. My first job was in a bookstore and upon entering one today, I’m still caught up in that sensory treat; the scent of all those wonderful pages, some stacked high with much anticipation, others hidden quietly amongst the shelves.
Able to enjoy an insightful biography, an edge-of-your seat mystery, a fiction novel pulling me away from the day-to-day into something new and wonderful, I often find myself alternating the type of book I read from one to the next.
It was this weekend’s read however, which implored me to do something I’ve never done before; pen a book review. Well, perhaps not a review so much as a request that you follow my footsteps and lose yourself in The Shack. The work of Wm. Paul Young, The Shack reads as a biography, an edge-of-your-seat mystery, and the fiction novel as which it is classified, and then takes you further into both its magic and yourself, leaving you forever changed.
Not a light read, you’ll want to cozy up in a corner and escape with this one, taking time to digest its messages. Because The Shack is a book you’ll carry in your heart and your head long after turning the last page, in the spirit of which it was written, pass it along rather than placing it on a shelf.
If you’ve had the pleasure of reading The Shack, please share your thoughts, and if not, do yourself a favor; retreat into your nearest bookstore, and find this treasure for yourself.
