  1. That book was super popular when it first came out. Oprah makes books turn to gold, for sure! I am laughing at this podcast right now, just as you predicted. :)

    Have you read the book yet? What did you think of it? In my store, the book was super popular when it first arrived, and was displayed on one of the tables in the store. When the popularity died down a bit, it moved to its usual location… which, if I remember correctly, is somehow in the “Christian Inspiration” section.

    Very nice beach photos, Erk!

    Jen, I’ll be honest that when I read your comment, I hadn’t read the book. But I made myself read it tonight and I’m glad I did. Once I start reading, I could not put it down and read the book in one sitting.

    As I think I said in the podcast, I had heard basics about the story beforehand but the story as I read through it was very bitter/sweet. While I’ve had a couple of sudden deaths in the family (thankfully not under those exact circumstances), nothing could really prepare you for what both families had gone through and hope they coped throughout.

    While I’m not a believer in “The Man Upstairs”, everyone in this book obviously was. It was well written and while I skimmed through some of the longer religious prose, if believing in “The Man Upstairs” helped the families, good luck to them.

    It also shows the power of the interweb. Coming up with the idea for a blog of was a masterstroke and it was great that both families contributed to it and the book.
