This is the story of a young man who goes on a journey and ends up learning about the universe, God, and himself. The first half is actually pretty good. But, towards the end, when the man is having his spiritual awakening, the book becomes preachy. Ugh.
This book only took about an hour to read, so I think it's worth it. I just prefer to make my own insights about man's soul and the heavens while enjoying a good story, instead of being preached to in a book.
