I love to read. My husband knows if I am out of books, I’m going to be crabby. That may be the main reason he bought me a Kindle last Christmas. My next new book is a few satellite seconds away!
One of the best books I’ve read this year is by an author named John Robinson. I was already a fan of his first series of novels – The Joe Box Series (now available at Kindle: http://www.amazon.com/Until-Last-Dies-Mystery-Book/dp/1589190211/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1287927306&sr=8-1-catcorr). Go ahead and buy all three at once – you’ll enjoy reading them one right after the other!
One of my favorite things about John’s writing is that he writes like a guy. He knows the majority of his readers are going to be women, but he doesn’t write to please us or try to make his characters understandable or hyper-sensitive to our female needs. Like my other favorite male writers – he’s a guy writing the stories he’s been given. He stays true to that. This makes his writing authentic.
The moment I started reading Headed Home, I was immediately connected somehow to the character named Dooley. I put my head down on my desk and wept over this kid. I found myself rooting for all the remnants of a fictional Vietnam combat unit. Every character mattered. I wanted to pray for them! Then, there is the final scene in the church – Robinson wrote evil so bad, my heart pounded and my fists clenched.
I found myself making a list of the people who I want to know Jesus before He comes again and praying about ways to reach out to them.
