Rather purposefully, I've avoided the topics of Religion and Politics at this site. There are plenty of them already. This site is still working on what it wants to be when it grows up, but it knows it isn't that. That said, this post will come dangerously close to crossing the threshold. Hopefully, discussing literature doesn't count as discussing religion. Anyway, here is a link to a theological blogger who was, more or less, trashing this compelling novel.
The Confessionator: I have a confession to make...
Similarly, this blogger also had something to say on the matter. Two of my three comments were posted. I must have finally hit a nerve with the third one. I don't know, as a writer and avid reader/lover of books, I guess I get particularly offended when undeserving novels/novelists get trashed. Maybe I'm just still bitter about the confessionator blogging about burning every one of her Women's Studies books from college...
Like that isn't a Feel-Good in itself, here's the FG of the Day:
Posted at 1:24 p.m. on Wednesday, May 17th, world-renown Professional Football linebacker and idiot Joey Porter recants his earlier statement about his upcoming visit to George W. Bush.
On Sunday, Porter said, "Yeah, I got something to say to [George] Bush, I'm going to have a swagger when I walk in there, too. I'm looking forward to it. I have something to tell him, too. I don't like the way things are running right now. I feel like he has to give me some of my money back, so I got something to tell Bush."
Since people are paid handsome salaries by the US Government to kill people that threaten the president, it probably wasn't a good idea. Click here to read the full apology.
