Donald Miller has what I would consider to be a unique writing style that can be a bit challenging to get used to. I found that I had to really pause and reflect on each of the first few chapters and remind myself of the subject being written about. Once I had adjusted to this style I began to find commentary and thought provoking statements in nearly every chapter. Miller writes this book in a way that takes the reader along his journey of writing a movie script and all the life that happened in between to help him become more aware of the choices he could make to make his life story a stronger one. "I also wondered if he wasn't right, that we were designed to live through something rather than to attain something, and the thing we were meant to live through was designed to change us. The point of a story is the character arc, the change." "The story made us different characters than we would have been if we had skipped the story and showed up at the ending an easier way."
Life is all about choices, Miller has presented a discussion of a way to figure out which choices to make, and I loved it.
