The Fourth Fisherman

I understand why the author wrote this story in parallel form.  Initially each chapter alternates between the story of the 3 fisherman and the story of the author.  Their lives are parallel which makes sense to tell the story in parallel form until their lives are intertwined.

The fisherman are lost at sea and the author is lost in his life.  Being lost is figurative for some and literal for others.  Either way, they were lost.  And being found was not the end of the story.

The story is really a story about writing this story.  If that makes sense, then read this book.  If that does not make sense, then this book is not for you.

This book is for anyone who has been or is currently lost, both figuratively or literally.

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
