    Let me start off by saying that 1). I am not religious, I don't believe in god(don't start a flame war), and B). I am not an avid book reader. I have read maybe 5-8 books in the past 10 years. All of them were Fantasy fiction dealing with mostly Arthurian Legend(The Mists of Avalon, The Lady of Avalon, Mad Merlin, Lancelot De Luthe, Morgan Le Fey, Wheel of Time). Books like that.

    Well i was looking for an Audiobook to download for my Ipod to listen at work and i came accross a book called "The Shack" It had hundred of nothing but great reviews and it was only $5.99 so i was like ok will DL this.

    What an AMAZING book. The book is NOT about religion or GOD but it highly involves it. It is a fiction book written by William Paul Young. I just can't say enough about how great this book it and yes it made me cry, AT WORK.

    I am HIGHLY recommending this boook to everyone, evern if you dont read you should read this book!

    Anyone else out there read it??

    I haven't read it but I will look at scooping it up. I read all the damn time. I generally have no less than three new books on hand. I get two done a month or so. Reading really is how I wind down. Sure I play xbox and what not but I read like a son of a bitch.

    I read it. It's a very very popular book and I can tell why. At that, it was like pulling teeth for me to finish it. It wasn't bad. I just didn't get into it as much as I usually do.




    I read a lot. Lately i've been on a carl hiassen, john grisham kick. Finishing all of their novels they have. I read a couple paperbacks a week.

    Ive been reading Brian Haig's novels when I am not reading non-fiction military history/present. Also picked up one of Orson Scott Card's novels the other day. The Empire I think its called.

    i don't think you'll be disappointed. It's like a whole new way of thinking about god. It's a good story all together
