Peace Like a River was one of the most amazing books I have read. It has an excellent plot line (not extremely thick or intense). What kept the pages turning for me was the author's writing. Everybody says things like this, but I really mean it. He places you in the story in a way unlike any other author. I felt as though I was the character himself, there and experiencing what was happening. This is a book that you could just sit down and read without too much thinking, but what made the book an 'experience' for me, was taking time to process all of the symbolism present. You can take from this book whatever you choose to. I would tell anybody that I know that this is a must read. I could go on, but I think that there are people waiting in line for the computer. ;)
