Why read it?

1 author picked The Singer as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

This book is an allegory of the Gospel story. I devoured the entire trilogy in college as I was hungry to learn anything about God during that time. The writing is poetic and rich, and the symbolism of a troubadour who sings the ancient Star-Song is well-crafted. It’s a fresh retelling of the Gospel story that has spiritual depth in its pages.

From Rick's list on fantasy that has a spiritual theme.
