The Final Boundary (by Adrian Plass)

I really like Adrian Plass. Of all the current Christian authors, he's definitely amongst my top five. Number one amongst the Brits, only rivalled by the American Philip Yancey for thought-provoking and well-written, enjoyable books.

This is a collection of short stories and allegories by Adrian Plass. There's a Christian message underlying them all, and on the whole I enjoyed them. The style is excellent, as I've come to expect from Plass, but I have to admit that some of them were slightly too cryptic for me. Thus the meaning, at times, wasn't entirely clear. Perhaps it will become clearer on re-reading, something I will undoubtedly do at some point in the future.

Certainly worth reading for any other Adrian Plass fans, but not the best way to begin reading this author's work.
