Few words wasted,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: What Happened to Sophie Wilder (Paperback)
I don't think there's such a thing as a "must-read" in literature anymore, but Christopher R Beha's debut What Happened To Sophie Wilder is a "should-read." While many of the other reviews have hit on the tender and touching story of the main characters, there are two components of the novel that I personally enjoyed:
- The prose. Beha writes in short sentences and rarely, if ever, uses adjectives/adverbs as a lazy means of description. The novel's choice of words was given careful thought by a master craftsman.
- Religion. I am not religious, but I found Beha's thoughts on salvation to be thought provoking and to have moved me in a way that I found surprising and memorable.

Thanks for the review re sotierology in the novel. I think I will purchase same becuase of the apparent quest in the novel re the metaphysics of life and the transcendent issues contained therein. Thanks again.
