ONE WORD 365 // Week 33, Book 23

I bought this book from the Amazon app on my smart phone in May 2011 on the spot when Jason Gray recommended it me while at a radio retreat. One of the best recommendations I have ever received...

The Pacific and Other Stories
By Mark Helprin
Penguin Books, 2005

This might be of my favorite books I've ever read. From the very first paragraph of the first story, I was hooked.

The stories are so well crafted, it scares me to call myself a writer. They are beautiful. The characters, places and events in the stories have such diversity and depth. 

I don't remember Jason's recommendation having many words other than, "Read it." And that's the  one I give you: "Read it."
