Book Review: The Bone House by Stephen Lawhead

3 February, 2012

I received a complimentary copy of The Bone House for the purposes of review, through the Book Sneeze blogger program.

I read quite a bit of the book today – the last eleven chapters I believe – but it was not because the book was un-put-down-able. I simply wanted to finish it, and get it out of the way so I could read something else!

I enjoyed about half of the eleven chapters I read today, the ones concerning Kit. That was really all of the book that I enjoyed. Most of the rest of the book was boring or frustrating or both.

My biggest struggle with the book, however, is how on earth it can possibly be described as Christian fiction. There is nothing remotely Christian about it, and a fair bit to suggest it is anti-Christian. How Stephen Lawhead continues to have books published by a Christian publisher and sold in Christian bookstores is anyone’s guess.

I probably won’t read the upcoming books in The Bright Empires series. I’d rather spend my time reading something else, something that I enjoy.
