Review by Botley Book Circle

Inspired alot of discussion – especially on spirituality vs religion dependent on our own perspectives and experiences.

    There were some mixed feelings about this book within the group. I personally enjoyed it, finding the theme of the narrative an interesting concept. I also liked the fact that there was a contra arguement to the religious aspect of the book. It was well written and I found myself eager to read it. It proved a good book for discussion within the group as it promoted varying opinions about religion in particular. I shall certainly read other books by this author.
