It was the fastest read I had in so many months. I finished it in three hours but I am thirsting for book  two which was released a week ago but is not yet available in our local book stores.

My name is  Alan Christofferson. You don’t know me . “Just another book in the library,” my father would say. “Unopened and unread.” You have no idea how far I’ve come or what I’ve lost. More important, you have no idea what I’ve found.

Thus begins the story of The Walk by Richard Paul Evans. I have blogged about him time and again, reviewed some of his books that I’ve read the past years and still looks forward to reading  more of his books.  Reading his books is like treating yourself to a true to life story, learning life lessons along the way and wondering sometimes and asking yourself, “Why didn’t I think of that?”.  Or maybe, you find something similar to what you’ve been through in life and you cry a little, or it makes you sad because you remember your own struggles but always in the end, there is a ray of sunshine and a hopeful promise of something good. We were meant to live life as social creatures, he says, and meant to reach out and touch each other’s lives.  We each have a purpose why we meet people from all walks of life although sometimes, we are slow on the uptake, never really understanding  everything .  At times, we blame God for the misfortunes that befall us but we don’t ask Him why He  also gives so much in return, even His life for us.  This is what I like about Evan’s novels. He injects spiritual element in his story. You can  read the summary of the book here.
