Reading Donald Miller is an acquired taste. Like a new food, you read the book little by little trying to decide if you like it or not. Sometimes it’s good and sometimes you’re not so sure. But you keep at it until you realize you are done, and it was enjoyable.
This book seemed to bounce from story to story, almost like a child with ADD. But there was a theme and good one at that. Life is a story, and like those stories we read as a child, we desire a happy ending. Yet that does not happen as there isn’t always a happy ending in life. It’s not about the ending but the middle that is where the real living is. “People love to have lived a great story, but few people like the work it takes to make it happen.’ (p. 100). I hope I’m living a great story.
