I was not one of the many fans of the movie Fireproof, in fact I hated it… maybe I should write a review of why I didn’t like it. So why did I choose to read Courageous, since it is from the same people who came out with Fireproof? Because I saw a trailer of a movie about fathers and their relationships with their children and I thought it looked interesting, and when offered the chance to read the book I thought, why not.
Who the book is for:
You would think that this book would be for dads, but it can be enjoyed by any adult or teen, male or female.
What I liked:
Great story. Interesting read.
What I didn’t like:
The book has a little part in it about a girl in Heaven… which I found odd, fake, and a bit… I don’t know… wrong? Anyway, it struck me as weird and I didn’t like it.
All in all the book wasn’t as “touching” as I would have liked it to be.
I don’t yet know if I will watch the Courageous movie when it comes out, afraid I might not think as highly of it as I did this book, but I do recommend this book.
I give Courageous 4 out of 5 stars.
