Very religious

I did not realize how religious this book was until I started reading it. I am not a religious person, but I still enjoyed this book. I can see why someone who was non-religious would not like this book though, so just a friendly warning.

Give it a chance

Allegory is not exceptionally well written, but stick with it til the end. The writer makes an excellent point on how we should respond to others in this life and the impact we can make. Remember, it is what its title states: an allegory.

    Interesting read

    I have never read Robby Charters before. This book is an interesting take on Heaven. It is a little out there, but a good read.

    A very good book, I was sad when it ended...

    Yes, there were religous unxertones, but they truly added to the story.

    Pleasantly surprif Pll Plesantly surprised.

    Not at all what i was looking for. A very nice "break" from occasionally dry Protestant theology study. Good little read.

    A great story! Makes you think about the importance of communit

    A great story! Makes you think about the importance of community and how we can help each other. Although religious, I think it offers a good moral lesson for us all.
