Not Very Inspiring

I have to confess that I have struggled more with this book review than any other I have written thus far and, consequently, have dragged my feet about posting my review. I have read many glowing reviews of Amy Inspired, but I have to say that I just don't feel the same way. I really struggled to read and become engrossed in the story line. The characters just didn't seem to come alive to me and the interaction between them seemed artificial.

There were elements in this book that just don't coincide with my perception of right and wrong. Unmarried, unrelated, young men and women living in the same apartment goes against my sense of propriety. The Bible admonishes us, in 1 Thessalonians 5:22, to "abstain from all appearance of evil." (KJV) We are also cautioned, in Romans 14:16, to "let not then your good be evil spoken of." In light of these two scriptures, I felt conflict over some elements of the story and that detracted from my overall enjoyment of the book. Perhaps I must chalk it up to my advanced age and the fact that I am extremely conservative in my views.

I am vastly outnumbered in my opinion of Amy Inspired and that is fine because we all know that a book that one person loves, another will detest, and vice versa.

A copy of this book was provided to me for review purposes by Bethany House Publishers. I was in no way obligated to provide a positive review and all statements contained herein are my honest opinion. I received no compensation in any form for providing my review.

    .....

    I wonder if I'm the only person writing a review who was not given a copy for the reason of reviewing. I had to finish this book to fend off a personal feeling of giving up, but it was very dificult to do so. The author had a list of "The most obscure words in the English language" and made it a goal to use at least 10. The scripture went on for pages and pages, giving the feeling that it was filler.
