    I received The Shack by Wm. Paul Young as a gift. As soon as I finish the trashy romance novel I'm on , I plan to start it. There are mixed reviews as far as I can tell. Anyone here read it?

    I have read it and loved it. I hope that you like it, when you get done let me know what you think. My personal opinion is... people miss the whole point of the book.

    Gut - I finished The Third Child yesterday. I mistakenly thought the subject matter was lighter than her other work, but "disturbing" is the right description. Melissa's relationships with everyone in her life were chilling, to put it mildly, but I found her character completely sympathetic and I couldn't help hoping for everything to turn out OK for her. The ending both surprised and horrified me. I think this one will stay with me for a while. I'm going to try out Three Women next, after I finish the biography of Victoria Woodhull that I've started.
    I'd better get started on my copy of Three Women so we can discuss!
    Count your blessings!

    I am looking forward to my break from school so I can read for pleasure again. I am starting with Bitter is the New Black.

    I finished the book a few weeks ago and am now reading the follow up books recommended on the back page. Absolutely incredible book! I cannot recommend it enough. I sent copies to two friends, and plan to re-read the book later this summer.

    I have a massive book to read next ~ "Atlas Shrugged."

    Re: What are you reading?

    I have started reading the 'Left Behind" series of books by Tim Lahaye..there are twelve books in the entire series and they were part of my grandmothers collection and they became mine when she died a year and a half ago but I know she wanted me to read them. I will have to say I have almost finished the first book and if all of them are as good as this first one is I will be buried in books for a couple of weeks.

    I read the between the numbers, the Metro books as well as the Full series(there are 6 in all). They're all good reads, quick, easy, and humorous. If you like her writing style, you should read them. By far, the Plum series is her best work though.


    The Shack...this is hard for me to read. I had a nightmare about a fourth of the way through about Missy, the little girl who was murdered and haven't been able to pick it up again. I've started the new Mary Clark Higgins book just to have something lighter and I'll go back to The Shack in a few days.

    The part about Missy bothered me too. The Shack is not an easy book to read but, if you can try and finish it. I think you will like the ending, it makes the part about Missy bearable.
