The Woods - Harlan Coben

Awesome book! It's one of those with 4 little stories going on that end up all entwined at the end. Definitely stayed up late finishing it. Angel - you should take a break from the romances with this one. I'll bring it for you at Christmas.

Interesting Section: Page 222 - This big Soviet dude is reflecting on his past and he says, "You live among this ridiculous wealth and you get lost. You worry about nonsense like spirituality and inner health and satisfaction and relationships. You have no idea how lucky you are." I thought this was interesting b/c we were talking about this same thing the other day. That you have to meet people's basic needs before they can truly be open to listening to the God stuff. That is one of the mottos of one of the charitable organizations. Can't remember which one. This is certainly not the case all the time, but I thought it was funny to run into it in a book after we were just talking about it.
