The In-Between by Jeff Goins

I received a free copy of this book to review from Story Cartel. I thought the book was beautiful and well written as a whole. The stories of life are a great reminder that not every will live the same life and that our lives may not turn out the way we expect, but that may be better for us. "So perhaps the fact that life doesn't always turn out the way we'd hoped is a blessing, not a curse - if we have eyes to see it." This was my favorite quote and conclusion of the book.
I will say I feel the title was a little deceptive for me. The beginning held to the title, but honestly this is a memoir of what he sees as important events in his life. The end sort of wrapped it up, but still did not really conclude what I would have expected. Also, as a follower of Christ, I found his lack of conviction personally frustrating. I would rather have him say exactly what he believes than to tip-toe around "delicate" subjects because he might offend someone.
None of my dislikes would keep me from recommending this book as it has some great points and wonderful stories in it. I would give it 4 out of 5 stars on a rating scale.
