I really only have time to read during the summer when I am out of school. So, this summer at the beach my sister finished The Shack and gave it to me and said I needed to read it. She said it would make me think totally different about the world we live in. I took it home and read 1 or 2 chapters and then put it down and never found time to finish it. I finally found time Monday and finished it Tuesday. This book is GREAT!! My sister was right....it really makes you think and realize things may be different through other people's eyes. How different life and relationships could be if everyone could just get along and not have power over someone else!
