Blue Like Jazz by Donald Miller

Subtitle:Nonreligious Thoughts on Christian Spirituality


I started reading this book because it was thrust upon me. ''You need to read this book, its great' , "Have you read this book yet?" so I dutifully picked it up and read it.

It was a struggle to start off with; maybe it had something to do with the post-modern memoir structure, where he jumped forward and back through the years in a non-linear structure. It was an interesting read while I had the book open and some ideas Miller brings forward were thought provoking and I must say that I did end up enjoying what I did read.

However, after I put it down it was often difficult to pick up again to read. A good read yes, an enjoyable one? Not really.
