This is the cheapest I have seen this book, and before you scorn it take a look at http://www.theshackbook.com/ and see how the author wrote it for his kids and never intended to publish it, yet it rose to be New York Times best seller for the last 37 weeks and is destined to become a movie. As people who read it usually give it to others, you can order two and get free delivery, or add something else to make up the fiver. It;s a lovely gift to someone who has just suffered a bereavement, or who is having difficulties in life. It's also a great story!

And here's the unabridged audio version for even less http://estudysource.com/platform/site/product/products_audio.aspx?pid=AF0054

For five dollars you get the complete book in up to four formats of your choice, the reader's voice conveys the emotion really well.

You can play a sample of the audiobook using the above link, or you can read part of the paperback at http://www.theshackbook.com/read.html

Brilliant book, I sent a gift wrapped copy to the grieving parents of someone whose funeral I attended on Saturday.

By the way Play.com sell it for a fiver, with free delivery, which is cheaper if it's a one off just for you. Amazon just dropped the price by a quid, that's why I posted. The author is not interested in profit, which is why I guess it is so cheap.

Me to Emma, I had to stop my car on the M4 and pull into the services while playing the MP3 audio version in my car because I was overwhelmed by emotion. That was on 28 December 2008.

I wasn't sure when I posted this how it would be taken, but I just had to, know what I mean?

I too have also just finished reading this book after my mum bought me it for christmas (she thought it was a thriller!) Although not religous myself like emma above I did find it a very good read and comes recommended - At this price anyway :thumbsup:

Some religious people HATE this book. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pK65Jfny70Y (contains spoilers)

I am not at all interested in religion, but this book is different. It can penetrate your soul.

As a Christian myself, I think the book portrays some interesting characteristics of God. I would however warn that it does break one of the 10 commandments by making an image of God. The problem with making an image of God is that God is always so much more than any image of Him and so it limits His abilities and personality. Also, although God does love us and pursue us to accept Jesus Christ as our saviour and therefore become a child of God, this book doesn't really get across the message that we are to repent of our sins in order to commence a relationship with God.

Just my perspective as a born-again Christian. Hope this helps someone.

I respect your views, however I am not bothered as I am not a Christian. You should get to know the author a bit more http://www.livinghopechurch.com/group/lhc/media_video/player/459
