    I have to break my modus operandi because I can t review this book in six words, and I can t stay silent about it, either It really bugged me But not because I think that Beha is a poor writer on the contrary, I could not put the book down and read it within a few hours This is not common for me at all The subject matter is intensely interesting to me, and the prose is sophisticated, beautiful But what bugs me is that this is a novel that is, at least in part, about a woman s conversion t I have to break my modus operandi because I can t review this book in six words, and I can t stay silent about it, either It really bugged me But not because I think that Beha is a poor writer on the contrary, I could not put the book down and read it within a few hours This is not common for me at al...

    I read this book both because a trusted friend highly recommended it to me and because it was published by my new publisher, Tin House It s a treat to read a novel that is simply different from the regular run of fiction, however excellent, that fills one s reading days Sophie Wilder is brief and the prose is unshowy sometimes sliding into unexpected loveliness but the intention and the intelligence behind the work is unabashedly serious Charlie Blakeman, the 28 year old narrator, meets Sop I read this book both because a trusted friend highly recommended it to me and because it was published by my new publisher, Tin House It s a treat to read a novel that is simply different from the regular run of fiction, however excellent, that fills one s reading days Sophie Wilder is brief and the prose is unshowy sometimes sliding into unexpected loveliness but the intention and the intelligence behind the work is unabashedly serious Charlie Blakeman, the 28 year old narrator, meets Sophie Wilder when they are college freshmen, and they fo...

    I hope it s not clich if I say this novel felt to be a fitting continuation of folks like Mauriac, Greene, O Connor, and Walker Percy I don t mean to pigeonhole it with that just to say I felt that the book did justice to the complexities and ambiguities of both faith and doubt, to what Charles Taylor describes as the cross pressure of our secular age The end of the story heartbreakingly inhabits that space without letting us off the hook And I ll be honest page 133 is going to make a reg I hope it s not clich if I say this novel felt to be a fitting continuation of folks like Mauriac, Greene, O Connor, and Walker Percy I don t mean to pigeonhole it with that just to say I felt that the book did justice to the complexities and ambiguities of both faith and doubt, to what Charles Taylor describes as the cross pressure of our secular age The end of the story heartbreakingly inhabits that space without letting us off the hook And I ll be honest page 133 is going to make a regular appearances in talks I give around the country with due acknowledgement, of course , and probably into my next editorial for Comment magazine.I loved the light handed but suggestive architectonic of the book The Stars Above The Law Within but I suppose philosophers are not exactly representative readers However, I also appreciate Beha s psychological sympathy, the generosity of his voice ...

    This story was hard for me to get into The first part of the story was slow And it was almost frustrating at times to understand the relationships which were important in the story The second half of the book I couldn t put it down Things start to come together and you are left feelingsatisfied with the new information given by the author The story is also told in an alternating fashion between past and present between chapters until they merge, or so it seemed I would love to hea This story was hard for me to get into The first part of the story was slow And it was almost frustrating at times to understand the relationships which were important in the story The second half of the book I couldn t put it down Things start to come together and you are left feelingsatisfied with the new information given by the author The story is also told in an alternating fashion between past and present between chapters until they merge, or so it seemed I wo...

    This was unlike any book I have ever read before When I finished it, I sat for a very long time thinking about the ending, and all the pieces that came together To say this was well crafted is an understatement It also contains plenty of ambiguity, which is what makes good literature This is one book I wish I had read in a class where I could discuss it with othersthat good, that complex, that compelling I am happy to say I have Behe s memoir here to read, which also promises to bring ma This was unlike any book I have ever read before When I finished it, I sat for a very long time thinking about the ...
