Michele Ramirez has turned to alcohol and drugs - a life of crime with her boyfriend Cam. Although he is abusive, Michele believes in her haze that she does not deserve any better. JOURNEY follows Michele on her path towards taking back her life. Along the way she meets David and his father; finally men she can look towards as role models. Finding God is the last thing on Michele's troubled mind, but God has a way of finding the lost...
I read this fairly quickly, and it is by no means a difficult read. What made this book most enjoyable was Klinesmith's ability to create characters you want to care about. The dialogue, emotion, and action are spot-on - I wanted to know how Michele was doing throughout the day.
As someone who crawled out of a troubled past, JOURNEY was comforting in the shared experience fashion. It is amazing how God can help you overcome insurmountable odds to find a bright future. I enjoyed the bits of scripture exchanged in truly difficult moments.
I can't wait to read book 2! Happy reading :)
The book description was intriguing to me, and I think it lived up to my expectations. Journey to Almighty was well written and the story moved along at a pretty good pace. There was a good story line, and for the most part it was believable. There were a few things I would have liked to see differently, but these are more personal preferences than anything else.
For one, I felt like the boyfriend's role was not given as much attention as it should. We do see that he is dangerous, but then for a good portion of the book you don't hear anything from him. I feel like if he was as dangerous as the book implies he would not have been quiet in Michele's life as long as he was. He left her alone for a several week stretch, and I personally don't think that would have happened.
I also felt like towards the end of the book, Michele's new friendship with her first real girl friend needed some elaboration. Several times in the book, you find Michele worrying about what her friend would think of her if she knew her past. Once Michele's past can't help but be brought to light, you don't hear anything about the friend's reaction. I just feel that with the importance placed on Michele's concern regarding this issue, it should have been addressed.
My only other concern with this book is doctrinal based, but I was not surprised to find this. This has to do with the plan of salvation. I believe salvation comes from baptism, and most Christian books these days encourage saying the "sinner's prayer" as the tool for salvation. Without becoming preachy on the subject, this is the main reason I gave only 3 stars rather than 4.
All in all, Journey to Almighty is a good read. This book gives you a look at how powerful God is by what He can do to transform a broken life. This book is definitely worth a read.
