- He created a large and diverse cast of characters, representing vastly different paradigms
- He made each of these personalities feel real, with touching stories and sound logic for their opinions
- He was fair in his treatment, revealing that all positions have good guys and bad guys
The result was very believable dialogues and highly entertaining interactions. You feel what the characters feel and understand their anger, joy, and sadness.
This visceral story made me wince, made me laugh, made me cry, made me think, and made me pray. When was the last time you read a book that did that?
I would love to hear your thoughts on the book in the comments!
