Just done reading a book, yep done my one book per year quota of the average Malaysian. This year I chose 'Have A Little Faith" by Mitch Albom. The previous book I read was 'How StarBucks Saved My Life' that I saw from a review in The Star. This recent one I saw from the best seller's list.
I know I've been very objective in my choices, be it movies or books (in particular). I usually go for those that have a high rating by the users. C'mon I don't want to put money into something and end up as another statistic voting for 'unfavourable'. I like to be enlightened by the movies/books that I watch/read. Maybe that's how I fill my spiritual void left by the absence of a strong sense of religion.
So yeah, the book. See I'm bad in reviews and story telling. So I'll keep this short.
For what it's about, go to Amazon.com and search for the title. The theme is religion, specifically Judaism and Christianity. The real theme however, was faith. The story is about the author's journey in writing an eulogy for his Rabbi, with a blend of his meeting with a Pastor. The author documents the life of these 2 clergymen as being told by the clergymen themselves and their congregants.
This book did not make me convert (it shouldn't), but it did make me rethink the way I have faith in things.
Haha I might be good in talking about physical things but I'm a sucker in expressing my spiritual thoughts.
Until next time...
P/S: This book is non-fiction, so no dragons or vampires. Sorry for you Twilight-fanatics. But that's the way I like.
P/S 2: I was so close to getting a fiction book, "Starting Over' by Tony Parsons. Maybe next year?
P/S 3: It's a 240 page book and it took me about 3 weeks, on-and-off, to finish. Maybe about 12 hours? Haha yeah I know slow reader.=============================
