I was both sad that I had never read this book, and thrilled to finally be reading it. It resonated with me deeply. A lovely story and a great reminder of personal purpose, the role of people in our lives, and the universe conspiring to help us reach our full potential. I couldn’t possibly recommend this book more. Read it if you haven’t and read it again if you have.

Overall, a very good book. Very artistic and introspective, and it felt like I needed to digest the material more as it was very dense. Very absorbing read.

Really enjoyed it: noticed a number of negative reviews and to each their own. The basic subplot is to be happy and follow your dreams. Surely a message that harms none?
