#PUYB Book Review - Mr.Breeze by Morrie Richfield
Mr.Breeze by Morrie Richfield
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
There are bits of this book that has you thinking the author was set on creating a controversy. The religious themes are more than apparent and seems to spotlight that line in Alanis Morisette's song, "What if God was one of us?". Would we behave differently if we knew God was the person sitting next to us? Then, there are the bits (from Michael's view) that come off as a little bit sarcastic. Is this the work of a cynic who is trying to give us both sides of the story or are these thoughts of a person questioning religion?
The book is well-written and the story flows making it a fast read but you will have to take this book with an open mind. In a gentle, almost sarcastic tone it raises many questions on humanity, religion, social conditioning and life in general. There were also bits that dragged a little bit which I felt could have been omitted all together, hence the 4-star rating.
Would I recommend this read? Yes, to any patient reader with an open mind.
Offensive content?: PG, mostly for theme and content.
Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author through Pump Up Your Book. I did not receive any payment in exchange for this review nor was I obliged to write a positive one.
