This controversial book is either love it or hate it I have found in other reviews. Often people can’t get through the first few pages, or quit towards the end. I was apprehensive about reading only because so many people I knew were against it.

The Shack is about a man, Mac, who has been absent from the church for quite some time, who starts receiving mysterious notes in his mail box inviting him to “the shack”. When he takes his family on a camping trip tragedy strikes, forcing Mac to finally face some of his issues and some new ones.

I spent the first 200 or so pages listening to the story via audiobook and enjoyed it very much. Had I been reading it maybe it would have been a little more dull. The last couple chapters I read myself and found closure in the story and found hope in the message. I really enjoyed it despite what others have said.
