Just finished reading HEY NOSTRADAMUS, by Douglas Coupland. Good book. Very thoughtful in it's portrayal of the four main dialogues. Very sharp perception of Christianity, what it means to "be saved" to people still looking for meaning. It's not a "christian" novel - but it is very eye-opening to consider what Christians and Christianity looks like from other points of view. If it's all about loss, coping with death, finding and losing and finding meaning - this has been worth the reading time. I enjoyed LIFE WITHOUT GOD, and I've never been able to keep enough attention in another of his books until now. So if that's a "good review" - well, there you go. I wouldn't recommend it to everyone, but there are a few folks who wouldn't read it who should.
