Resonating with loneliness

I have been hearing murmurs about this book for a long time. It is a debut novel that has taken the publishing world by surprise, and continues to be on the bestseller lists two years after hitting the shelves.

I’ve been intrigued as to why so many people are recommending it, and why it has such a broad appeal. A book with a far reach like this raises the question of what message is being conveyed by the author that so many people from all different walks of life want to hear. As a Christian, it’s an interesting question to consider as we explore our own world view in relation to those around us. Maybe there’s a hint in this novel as to how the world around us is thinking.
