Angela Hunt is one of my all-time favorite authors. She lends her skills to the novelization of the book Risen, based on the story by Paul Aiello and Screenplay by Kevin Reynolds and Paul Aiello. I wasn't sure if this book would pull me in and keep my interest, but master storyteller Hunt did it again. The story is told from a Roman soldier's point of view and it is beautiful. I truly could not put this book down and devoured it in just a couple of hours.
As always, more people will watch the movie than read the book, but I feel that the emotion in the book and the meaning is much deeper in written word than what will play out on the screen. In the book we get to be inside the character's heads and see what they are thinking.
Fantastic and highly recommended
