On Crazy Love
The written word is SO important to both readers and writers. I've learned more by reading than anything. Yeah, so you can buy a book for a few bucks, but the cheap price doesn't indicate a cheap value. Yeah, some books are crap, but some are treasures.
But anyway, it didn't wow me. It didn't completely turn me off and make me hate the book, but it just didn't pull me in.
But we got to watch the video that went with Chapter 1.
THAT was good. I responded a lot better when he was just talking than his writing. This could be because, as a writer, he doesn't have the grasp on the language Stephen R. Lawhead (or even King for that matter), but as a speaker, he hit the nail on the head. I liked the video WAY more than the chapter I read.
However, I did read on, and I did like Chapter 2 (a lot) and the little bit that I read of Chapter 3. Now we're getting to the good stuff.
Can't wait till next week!
