I am searching for a new book to read. The last five books I have read have been incredible, but its time for some fiction. My last five books include
- The Great Awakening: Reviving Faith and Politics in a Post-Religious Right America by Jim Wallis
- The Hidden Power of Electronic Culture: How Media Shapes Faith, The Gospel, and Church by Shane Hipps
- The Tipping Point: How Little Things Make a Big Difference by Malcolm Gladwell
- unChristian by Dave Kinnamen and Gabe Lyons
- Everything Must Change by Brian McLaren
All four of these books are very good, and I plan on writing reviews for them later, but for now, I need a break. I am a bit saturated by the message in each. I need a good fiction book. Here is a list of the fiction books that I am considering.
- The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
- A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith
- A Long Way Down by Nick Hornby
I have Kite Runner and A Long Way Down, but A Tree Grows in Brooklyn is the most intriguing to me right now. I love fiction books that have broken characters trying make sense out of our broken world. Some of my favorite fiction authors include John Irving, John Updike, Kurt Vonnegut, and Graham Greene. I need to find something new, something fresh, something interesting.
Any comments on my fiction list?
Any other suggestions?
