Over the past week and a half I’ve been reading a book called “The Message” by Lance Richardson.
“The Message” is about a man, Lance, who has struggled with health disparities throughout his life, and goes into a coma on Christmas Day. While in the coma Lance visits the Spirit World and gives his account of the things that he sees, the whiteness, the happy people, the friendly faces. He writes of the old friends that visit with him, his grandpa and a few other people that he knew before he came to earth. Lance describes the feelings that he feels in the Spirit World and compares them to that of earthly life. Lance experiences things he never could have dreamed of, he learns of the important of service and of being with family. He learns that his purpose in life has not yet been accomplished and so he must return to earth and accomplish the things that have been set forth for him.
This story is a very touching story and there are definitely moments where I could feel the way Lance was feeling.
“The Message” was a good book, I would give it 3.5 out of 5. A few of the reasons why I don’t give it a four is because it wasn’t insanely griping, there were parts that I glanced over becuase I didn’t feel that they were necessary. And lastly there were a few smelling errors and word mistakes, completely understandable though and not that big of a deal.
Since my copy of Carry on, Warrior has not come in yet, I will be reading “The Last Summer (of You and Me) by Ann Brashares.
