Four years later, in this midst of his great sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack for a weekend. Against his better judgment he arrives at the shack one wintry afternoon and walks back into his darkest nightmare. What he finds there will change his life forever.
When my son passed away eight years ago, after some time of grieving it was recommended I read this book as a way to bring me to God and alleviate my grief. I had heard many good things but I was afraid - though I never really understood why. I found my way to God about five years ago and have had many encounters with him in my grieving process. I recently put The Shack on my Audible wish list and after seeing the trailer for the upcoming movie I knew it was time to "read" the book. I have never experienced such a profoundly positive effect from any piece of literature except for maybe the Bible. My eyes, mind, heart and soul are forever changed - I so look forward to continue growing in my relationship with God, Jesus and "Sarayu". Thank you - thoroughly enjoyed!

I didn't know what to expect because I didn't even know the story line. I was looking for a book to listen to for a long drive. This one jumped out at me and yelled 'Read Me'! So, I did. What a wonderful book! You won't be disappointed. This is the first review I have written. Don't normally do. Been a listener for 2 yrs and never written one until now!

This book was hard to stop listening to. I love family and friends and knew the interruptions were necessary however I COULD NOT WAIT to finish listening to it! I sometimes felt like the characters (Trinity) were talking to me. This book was very well written! I am SO THANKFUL that the author shared this with others and was open to rewrites to make it the perfect compilation of everything (short way of saying it). I learned how to forgive and let go a long time ago. The funny thing is that my son who has had a difficult year is the one that read and recommended this book to me. Several times in different chapters I had tears streaming down my face because I knew this opened up a new world of healing to my son. My son had already allowed God to begin working "through" him before he ever picked up this book. This book has left a lasting impression on him that he can now share with his wife and use to teach his 3 young daughters. Thank you for sharing your life with the world Paul!!!

What made the experience of listening to The Shack the most enjoyable?
I enjoyed the narrator. I enjoyed the story. It made me cry one minute and smile the next.
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
I wouldn't say it kept me in the edge of my seat, but it was a joy to listen to.
What does Roger Mueller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Roger Mueleer is good at bringing the characters to life.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Overcoming sorrow through faith

I lived 40+ years with Lutheran guilt that clouded my relation with God. Amazing how one fable can crack that mile thick layer of shame and guilt!!

What did you love best about The Shack?
The unusual portrayal of God being both Father and Mother
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Shack?
There were so many but when the Holy Spirit and Mac were in the garden and how the garden with all the beauty amongst the weeds was actually Mac's life! Also when Mac was in the cave judging God.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
I did not care for his voice or his lack of emphasis in his voice. Wish it was narrated by Max Mc'Clean
If you could take any character from The Shack out to dinner, who would it be and why?
Jesus! Papa! Sarayu! All are one so them as one

What disappointed you about The Shack?
It turned into a far fetched Christian fantasy book --- NOT a mystery/thriller at all.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
The first couple chapters were good . . .

Touching, suspenseful, thought provoking. Two huge thumbs up and I will be seeking out more from this author. Great read.

It starts with a good story and then it turns into an endless theological and somewhat philosophical rumbling. In my opinion, it could appeal to devout Christians who fancy themselves intellectuals but not to members of other religions or to atheists.

I kept waiting for something to happen besides the authors idea of God. I had no idea I had not purchased a mystery about an abducted child. Instead it was chapter after chapter of religious interpretation which is all childish fantasy to me. Waste of time. I kept waiting and waiting for it to be a great story. Ugh!!!

Forget the Theology, forget your religious hang ups. Allow the love of God to permeate your soul as your enjoy a great book of fiction.
I loved this book, it was beautifully written in a way that challenges common thought with regard to God. It seems bring about a sort of clarity in understanding God while trying to contextualise Him in a way that bypasses the confusion that can accompany "religion"
Loved it. It has a way of touching your life in ways that aren't even imaginable.
This book was recommended to me by my good friend Sue, from Singapore. what an amazing book! I am grateful for friends like Sue who thought enough of me to recommend a book like this to me.
An interesting take on what a relationship with God could be like.
A story of great heart ache, trials, laughter and immense immense love.
Masterfully narated by Roger Mueller, really brining the characters to life.
What a book. Unexpectedly heart wrenching & heart opening. Touched my soul & opened my eyes. Cannot recommend highly enough.
Loved the book, and love that audible included the interviews with the author! so good!
