I was excited to read this book because of the premise of the true story of a child going to heaven and returning to tell of his experiences. Well, Alex tells very little about that in the book. Mostly it is a detailed account of all the things that were done for Alex and his family post-accident, prayers prayed and freebies given. The author actually lost me when he opens a chapter saying that anyone can be a NICE person and speak all the right things so that people think he is a Christian, but none of the saints were ever described as nice, and that their family was only surrounded by true Christians during their ordeal.
It struck me as judgmental and hypocritical that he would even put that in the book. Was he saying that the people who didnt sit at the hospital with his family or pray for them or volunteer their time or effort or buy things for their family were not true Christians? It also bothered me that the author and his family, after taking months of time and food and money and prayers and freebies from the people of the church where they attended when the accident happened and Alex was in the hospital, would leave that church and join another later on, just because the second churchs pastor and Alex became friends.I guess I just didnt like the author...he came across as rather smarmy to me.
And the title completely misrepresents what the book is truly about, IMO.
