The Shack By: WM. Paul Young (m A book Review)

This 248-page book was difficult to read at first then I discovered the book on CD. I found it to be divided into 7 CDs and a great joy you listen to. At times I read along but I always listened and enjoyed myself.

I like the fact that he started each chapter off with a famous quote and also that each page had the chapter's name written on it. I furthermore enjoy that each chapter was named. It made me felt like I was reading a kids book. 

This was far from a kid’s book however. It was deep and meaningful and well written. The story at times may have hurt me as well as my heart cry a little in the beginning. I guess it is a book however that makes you feels these emotions to intently. It shows the sign of a good author and a well-written story at that. 

For the most part this story was deep and captivating. I never wanted it to end and dreaded going to work in the morning and having to tear myself away from this adventure. Tear my self away I did I went to work and eagerly awaited the next morning when I could read or listen to this book again. 

       This is not one of the best books I have ever read. Sorry George. It is however the most intense one I've ever read. . It made my head spin at time and on more than one occasion caused me a headache. (That is a good thing by the way.) 

This is not a book I will soon forget and stop talking about in the near future.  It was amazing from difficult start to twist ending. I enjoyed it through and thru and may even read it again in the future.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       Grade A+

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
