I think J California Cooper is the kind of writer who you have to love or hate I happen to love her Her style of writing is really unique There s this over arching spiritual quality to all of her work that is both explicit and implicit She also has a lot of little nuggets of wisdom and clever literary devices sprinkled throughout her work Like all great books, you can get something different from her writing every time you read it In Search of Satisfaction has a wonderful cast of rich characters with little stories that you can just fall into and lose yourself. This was the first full novel I read by J California Cooper Initially I was disappointed to find that this was not a collection of short stories, but I soon became enthralled with the drama of the Krupt and Befoe families These families and the people surrounding them were all in search of some type of satisfaction, and they did not care how they got the satisfaction These people went out of their way to be devious, sneaky, conniving, mean, and downright hateful The devil was prevalent all through this book, and seemed to be ever present whenever someone wanted something, or tried to get over on another person The devil showed how easy it was to get people to do anything for a little bit of money, and it was just disgusting to see how much people relied on having money for security Money is truly the root of all evil However, a few people actually found pure satisfaction, and it was a joy to see them be truly happy This book kept me engaged, excited, and involved in the lives of all the characters I was rooting for some, and hoping the worst for others, but overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this story it made me analyze my own journey of searching for satisfaction It is amazing how our own journey of satisfaction can either by influenced or shared by others Your values and morals should be in a good place when you want true happiness and satisfaction I would rate this book a 4 I would recommend this book to everyone, especially to J California Cooper readers. I read this book about 10 years ago, it sparked something in me then The idea of constantly searching for satisfaction led me to seeking happiness for myself As I read it now, I m grateful for new understanding that our family is than blood as we are connected to each other through Jesus.The story takes you through all emotions The drama builds and the mystery of the tale will take you by surprise Definitely one of the best books I ve ever read Thank you OOSA for suggesting we read a classic as part of our reading challenge Every reader should get to know this classic.
