Finished this late last night. I really enjoyed spending time with the characters through this book. A story of family secrets, a story of losing and finding.

It has taken me way longer than I would like to admit, but I have finally finished Station Eleven. Not the book's fault, just my crazy life currently. I really enjoyed slowly steeping my way through this pademic dystopia. Seemed fitting.

My heart hurt for this dad who goes through this valley of shadows without the hope of a loving Savior. We have a God who may not always take us out of the storm, but He WILL ALWAYS walk through it with us. I held out well into the afterward, hoping to see if dad or son would find &accept the God they said they didn't believe was there. I can't imagine walking the road this family walked. But walking it without Jesus would truly be unfathomable :(

"Love cannot exist for long without the dimension of Justice."

There is truth here... God himself has two equal sides, love and justice.
A God who has only Justice would be completely vengeful -and we would all be guilty.
A God who is only loving would have to be completely accepting of everything thus compromising His Holiness by allowing all sin into His presence.

I don't know but this book right here might have just been my most favorite read of 2019! Great research into the history and although it was terribly hard to read about and imagine the pain that took place, the story line and characters kept me having to know more. Now I want to visit the national Park.

I really enjoyed this book & it helped me better understand the differences between these two religions. I rooted for Nabeel as he followed his search for truth and celebrated with him as he found it. It is so important to be strong in your apologetics.

This book was beautifully written. It was so fun imagining this hotel and all the guests. I give it 4 ⭐'s only because the greek mythology intertwined into the story just wasn't for me, but otherwise a very enjoyable read.

So I read this for my cli-fi pick for #BOOKED2019. I did enjoy it. It kept me interested and turning pages. But for most of the first half I kept waiting for something to happen "cli-fi-y". So here's the deal. This is a suspense novel that had to do with an outbreak which just happens to be climate caused. It's a good suspense but if you're looking for a "Day after tomorrow" movie type experience this is an ? not an ?. ?
