Same Kind of Different As Me – Book Review

Same Kind of Different as Me: A Modern-Day Slave, an International Art Dealer, and the Unlikely Woman Who Bound Them TogetherSame Kind of Different as Me: A Modern-Day Slave, an International Art Dealer, and the Unlikely Woman Who Bound Them Together by Ron Hall

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. The authors did a really great job developing the themes of friendship, suffering, and faith. It is comforting to hear the characters honestly struggle with their circumstances and the effect that that has on their relationship with God. They neither sugar-coat nor downplay the problems that they’ve both had in their lives and that makes the story that much more real, which is important considering its non-fiction. Being as neither of these men are writers by trade (and Moore can’t even read) I thought that it was very well-written. I suppose that that has to do with Vincent’s aid in writing the book, however I felt that this book was better written than Heaven is For Real which she also helped with. The format of switching between voices and writing between Moore and Hall is pretty cool and it works well with this particular story. My only thought was that it ended on a little bit of a precarious spot. I thought that it would have ended with a little more drama. Still a great read though.

Definitely a good story and I’d recommend it to anyone that wants an enjoyable read with rich themes.
