Chasing Fireflies

"Men spend their lives asking Who am I when the real question is Whose am I? I don't think you can answer the first until you've settled the second. First horse then cart. Identity does not grow out of action until it has taken root in belonging." - Chasing Fireflies by Charles Martin

That's a quote from the book I just finished reading. And I loved it. It's been a while since I've read a book that didn't make me turn to the last page because I was bored. I also don't like when an author uses ten words where only 4 or 5 are needed - Charles Martin knows this and uses his words well. Most importantly I was not disappointed in how it ended. That seems to be the biggest problem I have with the books I read, the endings always seem lame. And after the last page, when I have absorbed every word, I long to read more. I want to spend more time with the people I've just met. I miss them. I want to know how they are and what they are doing.

"Words that sink into your heart are whispered, not yelled."

This one whispered.

Listen, you don't have to run out and get it but, if you do read it let me know what you think...
