2. Do you think Christ will have made it to adulthood without Biff?

3. Was Biff's fondness for Mary, mother of Christ, a subtle jab at The Catholic Church's veneration of Mary?

4. Did you recognize any moments in your own development as you heard the story of Christ's? Do you relate to the character of Josh? Does this story of "Josh" make you feel any differently about Jesus as a human being?

5. Did you find Josh's likening of Judaism's exclusion of Gentiles from The Kingdom of God to Hinduism caste system an apt comparison? Why? Why not?

6. Was using Biff as a sin avatar an qualify as Joshua committing a sin?

How I Rate: I rate based off of my enjoyment of the book, not the technical prowess of the writer- though that obviously influences how much I enjoy reading the book, of course.



Rating: 6/10. It was enjoyable to read for the most part and well written. Nothing really special, IMO. Honestly, after reading the first 2 books I sincerely fail to see what everybody has been wetting their pants over about this series, King's 'magnum opus'. I will finish the series of course and I'm not making a judgement about the series as a whole after only reading 2 of the books; just saying that so far, I was expecting a lot more. I suspect that the genius of this series can only be appreciated after having read the entire series and only then will all of the links connect and the big picture be revealed, giving true appreciation.



Rating: 8.5/10. Very enjoyable, easy read. The story was definitely interesting and fun. This was my first Tolkien book that I have read and I will continue to read the LOTR trilogy as well, though I have heard this was the most enjoyable of them. It's a fun adventure story. Not really a whole lot to say about this one.



Rating: 9.5/10. I have played a LOT of Warcraft III and World of Warcraft, so this was a natural selection as far as books go. I looked up the chronological order of Warcraft books since I have decided to start reading them. This one is a future-past timeline part of a trilogy. It was fast paced and very interesting to read about Illidain, Malfurion, Tyrande, and Cenarius as I was very familiar with them from Warcraft III: Frozen Throne and I like the Night Elves. I look forward to continuing the trilogy and the rest of the Warcraft books.



Rating: 9/10. This was an interesting take on dragons and their interactions with humans. The main character was also different from the usual protagonists in fantasy novels. It definitely kept me interested and I can't wait to read the sequel when it comes out!

I felt that the third one slowed down a lot. Pacing just wasn't as good as the first two

I agree. I was being pushed by everone to read the Dark Tower. They said it's be right up my alley but... I just never could get into it like I could other books.

I recently picked up an interesting looking book that seems to be a series of books with similar themes so I'm curious to see if they are connected at all...

Anyway:



If I had to bet right on the spot on whether or not that was a pen name I'd have put all my money on it being one. But it's not. James Lovegrove? That's too good a name man.

Kind of reading a few books at the same time right now.

How To Be Good-Nick Hornby

The God Delusion-Richard Dawkins

There is a post talking about the order of the books if you are interested! It's definitely worth it!
