Friends, I come to you today with a heartfelt recommendation that you read this book, Uncharted, by Angela Hunt. This book is going to the very, tip-top of my MUST READ book list of all time!! I can say without a doubt that I have never read anything like it. This book was so good that I read it very quickly, but the images…the story…the things I have read about will stay with me forever. You might call this story a parable. This book tells the story of our lives with such amazing creativity that I can’t even find words to adequately describe it!
I also don’t really even want to tell you what it is about because mentioning the very subject of the book would ruin the story for you!! So, all I can say is PLEASE read it!!
Here is what Publisher’s Weekly has to say about this book, “…a blend of the movies Castaway and The Big Chill, with a touch of the television series, Lost, creatively thrown together with the biblical story of the beggar Lazarus and C.S. Lewis’s The Great Divorce.”
It is moving. It is emotional. It will keep you on the edge of your seat. And…I believe, God can use the story presented in this book to change you.
(note: this is a book I picked up from our church library and wanted to read on my own, it’s not written for any of my reviews.)
UPDATE: Ladies, I’m sorry to be so mysterious! LOL! I’m not doing it on purpose…but am glad that you guys are taking my advice and looking for the book! My guess is your city library might carry it too, ours has several of her books. I’m serious when I say that I could give you a one word description of the book…but for me, I think it would have ruined the suspense. So, I’ll just have to be mysterious this time!!
