If you ever catch a rerun of a 50’s sitcom, you will notice how the neighbors are not strangers, kids do not argue at their parents, and the families sit around the dinner table talking about their day. Today’s kids would just laugh at the old sitcoms, probably referring to them as ‘unrealistic.’ When the truth is that today’s families have lost touch with what real relationships are.
Author Robert Hall has written a clever, funny, and realistic book titled “This Land of Strangers” that touches on the subject about the relationships in our lives. From our families, neighbors, classmates, co-workers, fellow church members, to the stranger sitting next to you on the subway, Robert writes about how our relationships is threatening our society.
The author introduces the ‘crises” within the first few pages, which is a little haunting as I realized how families are falling apart; customers and employees are looking their trusts in business; and how political and religious views are distancing us more apart. The author uses interesting stories, an entertaining narrative and ‘real’ facts to address the overlooked issue in your society. This Land of Strangers is a necessary read!
