It is a miraculous book. It is my FIRST time reading it. I’m loving it so much it’s now on my top ten! It has everything: powerful personal observations, poetry, amazingly real characters, an engrossing story with all the skill of a great novelist, incredible scenes of sorrow and love, and a deep compassion for all living beings. I’m so amazed… After I finish it, I want to read it again. Foreshadowing, symbols, theme (Awakened to Life) all impeccably integrated into a fantastic psychic experience. Actually goes way beyond reading. It’s an experience to be treasured!
