book review: The Reluctant Hallelujah book review
I knew religion would be part of the story, the cross on the cover is a big hint, so is the title. The cover is really lovely I think. Anyway I wasn't quite prepared Jesus' presence to be so strong in the novel.
I actually loved this novel! The author has balanced the views of religion really well in the novel, from a Christian, to complete atheists and someone whose questioning what's really out there. This is so different from anything I've ever read and is truly a refreshing change.
I'm really glad I decided to an Australian reads challenge this year because otherwise I think I would have forgotten to read this book, it had been on my radar when it first came out but things got in the way. I really enjoyed this novel and highly recommend it, however probably not for readers under fifteen. There is a lot of course language in this book
