My take on The Road Show--a book by Braden Bell.

I hope I did not turn anyone away from the title. I love reading and it seems whenever I post a review of a book I get like 2 comments and that's it. I'm trying for more than 2. You think you can do that?

We'll see.

I've got my eye on you.

Listen up. This is an excellent book!

I know a guy. He happens to contribute at MMB from time to time. He wrote a book. (It is his first book published actually. And it is phenomenal. The "famous" author guy I know--yeah, his name is Braden Bell. Maybe one day, when I get up the courage I could ask for a Skype interview. Oooh. That'd be so talk-show like. I love it! Maybe.

I looked up his About Me section on his website.

Here's what it said: (Taken from Braden's site of course.)

"Braden Bell grew up in Farmington, Utah and graduated from Davis High School. He earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in theatre from Brigham Young University and a Ph.D. in educational theatre from New York University. He and his wife, Meredith live  with their five children on a quiet, wooded lot outside of Nashville, Tennessee, where he teaches theatre and music at a private school. An experienced performer, Braden enjoys singing, acting,               reading, gardening, and long walks with the dog."  

As you can see, Braden is very creative. He is a music teacher AND he writes. 

On to the meat of the matter.

I had the opportunity of reviewing his book, The Road Show. 
Note: The Road Show is written by a LDS author. But I think Christians of any denomination would enjoy this book. It is a very uplifting book.

   Basically it is about these five characters who have some weaknesses that they are trying to overcome.
We all have weaknesses right? Some of the issues the characters are dealing with are depression, loneliness and pornography addiction.  The main character gets asked by a person in his church to put on a road show for the folks in the church.

Road show= Think funny. Not anything serious at all. Basically it is a bunch of people getting together to entertain as much as anything.
This book was not only funny at times, but touching as well. Life is hard but if we turn to our Savior Jesus Christ, during our trials He can relieve our burdens.
  Yup, this is what I learned from this book. And you know what the best part is?
It is only 120 pages. It is a quick, easy, delightful read.

Looking for an uplifting book to read this summer?
Look no further.

There is a book trailer even! Take a listen if you wish! There is some beautiful music in the trailer.

I've seen this book reviewed on several blogs and so I ordered it from Amazon and it should be here in a few days.

Thanks, Alexes! I'm so glad you enjoyed it. And I'd be happy to do a Skype interview any time (as soon as I get set up with them!)
