  • Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life

    In the first half of life, we are naturally preoccupied with establishing ourselves; climbing, achieving, and performing. But as we grow older and encounter challenges and mistakes, we need to see ourselves in a different and more life-giving way. This message of falling down - that is in fact moving upward - is the most resisted and counterintuitive of messages in the world's religions. Falling Upward offers a new paradigm for understanding one of the most profound of life's mysteries: how those who have fallen down are the only ones who understand "up".

    If you could sum up Falling Upward in three words, what would they be?

    Journey, maturity, forgiveness


    What about Richard Rohr’s performance did you like?

    Richard Rohr has a message of forgiveness and love for all people. A call to a journey into the second half of life.

    (2509)

    In the present day, as the man-made apocalypse unfolds, three strangers navigate the chaos. Lila, a doctor and an expectant mother, is so shattered by the spread of violence and infection that she continues to plan for her child’s arrival even as society dissolves around her. Kittridge, known to the world as "Last Stand in Denver", has been forced to flee his stronghold and is now on the road, dodging the infected, armed but alone and well aware that a tank of gas will get him only so far. April is a teenager fighting to guide her little brother safely through a landscape of death and ruin.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend this only to someone who has nothing to do but read, and only if they had finished everything else on their shelf.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Finishing up the 2nd book, which I am sure will leave me poised to read yet another book.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    None


    Do you think The Twelve: A Novel needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I think the Passage (Book 1) did not need a follow up book!


    Any additional comments?

    The premise of the story was intreguing, and the fact that a publisher had agreed to 3 books caused me to bite and purchase the 2 available books. The basic story is good, but the author insists on dragging on details that conribute little to the plot. I was bored in many places in the book and found my mind wandering. The entire story could probably been written in one good book instead of 3 mediocre ones.
