Great book - beautiful prose and wonderful insight into human nature and tendencies. This book reminds me very much of Lief Enger's Peace like a River. I will highly recommend this book.

First time reading Charles Martin and I am completely hooked. He is an excellent writer and you can literally see and feel the images he puts on paper. Long Way Gone can resonate somewhere within all of us for our mistaken paths we have chosen, words we regret never saying and love lost and perhaps found again. While the tale is somewhat sad, it is also filled with a joy within and expected pleasures in life, mother nature and the great wonder of our world.

Excellent book. Don't skim over the words a Charles Martin has a way of writting feelings.

Another good book from one of my favorite authors. As always it's filled with wonderful characters and a touching story. Really enjoyed the musical theme and the loving bond between Cooper, his Dad and their friend Big-Big. Because it's a retelling of the prodigal son, it has a stronger Christian feel to it than his previous books. If you are a fan of love, kindness and music, you will enjoy this book.
