Fishing With God by Shane Hutchison and Chris Gordon is a spiritual novel that will make you reflect upon your life and how you have been living it. This novel isn’t really about one character. It is about a multitude of characters that find peace. This novel is about the unpredictable nature of our lives; one moment these characters are the happiest they could be and the next, they are destroyed. Or they are lost ... but the next moment they could be happy because they found what really matters in life.
There is hope, anguish, forgiveness, chances, choices, and so much more. It is a life. Literally. Although Ordin is the main character, the novel is so much more than that. What really moves the reader is the fact that the writer did not leave anything untouched. In these 300 or so pages, you will read a lifetime of suffering, pain, joy, and ecstasy. These emotions are shown in their most raw form. You can feel these emotions and how Ordin feels when he has to make a choice. I loved the fact that this novel made me work it out.
The writing style is very similar to that of Paulo Coelho. You will have to draw your own understanding; you don’t have everything handed to you, which is pretty much what life is like. It is refreshing, enlightening, and very encouraging. It makes you want to be brave enough to make those choices you have been putting off. Like Ordin, maybe one of them will take our lives where they should be and where we want it. A very good, enlightening and refreshing read.
