"It was good, but in my opinion it did not match the first book. Really it was just the last chapter or two that killed the series for me. I never could get back into it after I finished."

"Personally I enjoy a lot of Sci-Fi and fantasy. If you want a funny book, try anything by Terry Pratchett for fantasy, and Douglass Adams for Sci-Fi. I will warn you, The Hitchhiker's guide to the Galaxy Series is great, but the last book ruins…"

Family

Since losing the faith I find I have a difficult time maintaining close relationships with my parents and siblings who are strong believers. We don't fight, we all love each other, but there is a barrier that prevents anything too deep from happening. They are still faithfully waiting and expecting a prodigal son to return, so things seem to be a state of arrested development.I'd love to read about anybody's experience/success with bridging this divide in a healthy way, or of what potential…See More
