The Emerson Gospel is an excellent read full of wit, humor, characters you'll care about, and interesting real life ups and downs, triumphs and tragedies, that engage and entertain.

Without providing any spoilers, the book offers a great story about family, lifestyles, character, morality, balance, and the interactions our personal decisions and outside circumstances can play in most of our lives.

If I get it's point (other than entertaining), while none of us are perfect, we've all had challenges either relating to our own flaws or external events, we are all in this together, and have the opportunity to redeem ourselves and overcome.

What a great read!! The Emerson Gospel is an intriguing, emotional and hilarious look at a slightly dysfunctional family. Burger's writing is quick paced but vivid enough to allow the reader to see the characters. Whether you are reading about Haley's adventures at her trading desk in New York or the always comical family get togethers, you will not be disappointed. I highly recommed it and can't wait to read her next book.

I found this book to be very engaging. Burger takes time to build the characters into people you care about or people you love to hate. In creating the family she has woven enough similar qualities in the characters that you can see the intricacies that form a very dysfunctional family.

Once I started to read the story I kept wanting to see where the characters would be taken. Kept me entertained and interested the whole way through.

Can't wait to see what Burger writes next!
