Conversations with God - Neale Donald Walsch

'Conversation with God' is a wonderful collection of almost all questions we have all faced as teenagers.

Neale Donald Walsch has written about three other books on 'Conversations with God' apart from this one, that is targeted towards teenagers.

The first look at the book makes you wonder about the kind of perspective with which the book was written. The book has reference to God... and you are not sure if the author refers to the Good God who has created or is believed to have created everything you can possibly think of....
and you are not sure if you should be reading this yourself well past teenage or should you be gifting it to some teenager you know of....

I got this book as a gift from a good friend of mine.... not because I was a teenager but because some one suggested this book was good....

The book opens with a wonderful way of holding the audience's attention completely. You get glued to the words you read and your picture as a teenager slowly, quietly, unfolds in your mind and you do not feel like putting down the book at all and you know that Walsch has got you into the whirl of concentration.

Now why do I say 'whirl'? That is because all the questions that come up in children's mind cause your thoughts to just go topsy-turvy.... and you exclaim one of these phrases almost after every question u read:
Brilliant!!!
How True!!!
Exactly, that is what I thought too!!!
Yes, it is just impossible to get that point right....
How easy to follow...
How hard to relate...
and this list is endless....

Walsch has taken the role of God and answered all the questions that a teenager might possibly have.

As a reader, you are better off if you are non-judgemental about the author's take on God and HIS existence. If you are a believer, it is better to take author's views on God according to your own and not go by every word in the book. This, I felt only in the end of the book.. Unsure of the explanation that I have for this point...

If you are not a believer, you might want to consider the views in the book and you might be inclined towards believing in the Supreme power which is commonly christened as 'God'.
