The ultimate gift

The Ultimate Gift is the moving story of Jason, Red Steven's nephew. Red dies and leaves a series of tasks for Jason to complete in order to receive his inheritance. It is very moving and makes an excellent gift. Our small group studied the book and grew because of it....

This was excellent family material but rather predictable - nothing bad, just' a bit slow. Perhaps the fact that I saw the movie on tv midway through my reading alters my review. The movie was more enjoyable for me. People who most NEED this book won't likely be the ones picking it up! Ultimately it did give the reader some thoughtprovoking ideas. I will keep my copy or share with someone else next. It was purchased for a discussion in a club (not specifically a book club, just for a different monthly activity).

    Uplifting and Thought Provoking

    I found this book uplifting and making you ask yourself what you would do in the same situation. It makes you think about what really matters in life and is getting that promotion, new house, new car, etc so important. To me it shows what true happiness is. I highly recommend it to everyone and wish it were required reading in the schools.

    Interesting

    The storyline is not new but it was interesting reading what choices the character made as the book progressed. It does not captivate you but it is a good read.

    Good Story

    I was enjoying the story at the beginning but felt that it started turning into a bit of a Christian instruction manual as the story wore on. Characters in the book were very one dimensional, especially Jason. While Jason's monthly lessons were good guidlines for living, I think the book would be more meaningful if the reader could actually follow what Jason did each month as it was happening instead of having him list what he had done after the fact in Theodore's office. The book reminds me of religious tracts that I am sometimes handed during my commute.
