Beautiful in its compassion, excitng in its readibility and rewarding in its intellectual integrity,
This review is from: Enemy of the Good, The (Paperback)You might expect a novel about faith, extremism, liberalism, euthansia and hard-won redemption to be either depressing or inacessible.
By the first page of 'The Enemy of the Good' you will be persuaded that it can be the opposite; lifting and riveting. Indeed once you have read the first page it probably wont be long until you get to the last page, so gripping as it is.
There are few books about faith, fiction and non-fiction, that do not seek to convert the reader, even if just to a tolerant liberalism. This novel gives you the charcters and their lives, complete with the difficulties, ecstasies and contradictions, and then leaves you to make up your own mind- It is a strategy that ensures this novel lingers not only in the memory but also in the heart.
