Lost Mission by Athol Dickson

Lost Mission: A Novel Lost Mission: A Novel by Athol Dickson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Intriguing. It's the only word I can think of that describes this book! Intriguing. I wasn't too sure about it when I first picked it up and started reading it. My Spanish isn't up to par these days and I admit, I was a bit intimidated. However, after some encouragement on the blog tour and reading other reviews, I stuck it out. The beginning is a little slow going and I got confused (not too hard to do to me!) but I kept on reading. I'm ever so glad that I did! What confused me was 1. The Spanish dialogues (good thing I had a Spanish dictionary handy!) 2. The flipping back and forth of the story of the monks in the 1700's and Tucker's present day story 3. My lack of knowledge about what Catholic's believe (which we have been studying in my Wednesday night Bible study class so I was able to glean some from that class while reading this book). However, this book was very finely written and covers a lot of issues that are faced today in our world. I can't say too much about it though or I'll be giving too much away.

I do recommend you read this book. It is a "deep thinker" and might take a little longer to read (if like me you have to stop and think about it). It is well worth your time though!

Many thanks to the publisher and author for providing me a review copy of this book.
