End of the Spear

I just finished reading End of the Spear by Steve Saint. It is non-fiction, so it does require thought and active mental participation. I read a lot of books, and there are few that I mark up the margins in...but this one was one of them. For those of you that have seen the movie, let me just say that the book extends far beyond the subject matter that the movie portrays. It is a thought-provoking story and makes one examine themselves. You have to be in the mood to do it, but I was touched by Steve Saint's story. I would love to hear from anyone with the stick-with-it-ness to make it through this story. Here is a hint: read with a dictionary close at hand. Steve Saint has an extensive vocabulary, or at the very least an enormous Thesaurus.
There is only one other person that can rival his vocabulary, and that is Amanda...when she's upset. : ) In all earnestness, I really hope one of the three readers I have will actually attempt the book. Though it is not merely entertainment, you will not leave empty-handed.

On another note, it has been two months since my last blog...I am lame...I realize that now. : ) I will try better.

Countdown to Christmas - 24 days.


  1. I'll have to read it soon. And as for the other matter...it's not when I am upset.:) It's when I am feeling misunderstood- which usually upsets me!

  2. If I read this book will you update your blog?
