Sometimes you see a book and you instantly think to yourself that there's probably no way you're going to like it. That was my initial reaction when an advance review copy of Lino Rulli's Sinner
arrived at my house. I looked at it and thought there would be little in the book that would even remotely appeal to me. Then I decided that I should at least peek inside the book and see what it was about. Within minutes of me scanning the book, I was incredibly amused.
Sinner is Lino's story of his life as a Catholic and his struggle to be a faithful one at that. As I read through the book I frequently found myself laughing until I cried. The stories found in this book are a riot. Each of the stories has a point so for those who lack a sense of humor, you can rest assured that there are nice little gems of wisdom tucked into the author's amusing recollections.
Because of how funny this book is, you may not want to take it so say a waiting room at a doctor's office unless, of course, you don't mind people looking at you like you've lost it. It's certainly a book that will get you some curious stares as you try to suppress raucous laughter. That being said, it was worth having a room full of people look at me as though I were insane to have the pleasure of reading this book.
Sinner certainly gets my recommendation. It's an enjoyable read that is sure to make you laugh out loud.
I was provided with a review copy of this book by the publisher, Servant Books, in exchange for my honest review.
