Living with a Wild God: A Nonbeliever’s Search for the Truth about Everything
I’ll be honest. This book was difficult to sludge through, and I was disappointed in the time lost spent trying to troll through what point the author was trying to make. Tough words, but honest truth. From what I understand, Barbara Ehrenreich is a renowned author.
She tempts readers with the promise of telling about some grand event that changed her life, at the tender age of 13, an event she kept hidden, repressed in her mind for years, pondering whatever meaning it had, until now. For whatever reason, she feels it’s time to give a voice to the 13 year old that wrote about that grand event. Living with A Wild God is a culmination of whatever the present day Ehrenreich was able to interpret and glean from a journal that she wrote as a teenager, when she began a quest to understand life’s purpose, and to seek real evidence of God or some higher being. She rambles and wanders, and throws in religious history and references, and offers a glimpse from time to time of what sounds like a difficult childhood. The whole thing comes across as terribly self-absorbed and meaningful only to her. This was not the book for me. For me, there’s no positive spin.
