Living with a Wild God; Barbara Ehrenreich

Living with a Wild God: A Nonbeliever's Search for the Truth about EverythingLiving with a Wild God: A Nonbeliever's Search for the Truth about Everything by Barbara Ehrenreich
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Disappointing - more of her childhood journals and less of her childhood memories would have worked better. Instead, there are random paragraphs of the former that are jumping off points for the latter. At times it read as though she wanted a much more intellectual version of Walls' Glass Castle and at others, well, I don't know. Something just was off with the way it was written.

Having said that, some of her insights were interesting and reminded me of my scientist father and his lack of belief or spirituality. This is not be a book that people who are deeply spiritual will appreciate, but for those who are huge Ehrenreich fans or who are looking for wide-ranging thoughts about science and god and life it's not a bad read.
