I find this book confusing with the jumping back and forth between eras. The writer does have a way of pointing you in the other direction. I find that I get into one era then end up in another too soon. I've just started reading Lost Mission. I will keep going. The authors way of writing is different then any other that I have read.

This is one of the most depressing books I've read in many years. It is also one of the most repetitious and predictable novels I've ever read. I bought it because of the reviews I read and after reading the book I wondered if I'd read the same one. Very disappointed. Waste of my time - I kept reading thinking it would get better and also felt it was a huge waste of my money. I still fail to see the point the author was trying to make.

All right, I confess. Athol Dickson is my friend and he gave me a copy of his book in exchange for one of my own. But I promise you that my glowing review of his book has nothing to do with any of that. Lost Mission by Athol Dickson is one of the most brilliant and compelling reads I've come across in a very long time. This skilled author has the ability to span the centuries and interweave two stories to make them one; the result is a breathtaking and epic saga of human endurance and humble love.If you're looking for just the right Christmas present (for yourself and/or someone else!), I highly recommend this excellent book.

Dickson takes no time to get you into the story. I found myself thrown into the wild world that Dickson creates in Lost Mission. I was drawn in by several things at the beginning. I appreciate his depicting of history and his depth of characters. It was slightly confusing until you realize there are two parts happening one is historical with the Indians and the Franciscan monks trying to evangelize to the Natives (having grandparents who have talked deeply about this experience in the Canadian Residential schools in the early 1900s , really enlived this book for myself), and than one more modern with a girl named Lupe who believes she is on a mission from God. Once you actually figure that part out, youll find it easier to follow.Without giving too much away from the book I think youll find it compelling, as well as interesting enough to cover a wide audience. It dabbles in so many different genres Im not sure I could label it historal, modern, suspense, even a bit of romance throw in some illegal immigration and youve got yourself a intriguing story. I enjoyed it! However, know that its not wrapped up in a neat package. I think thats what I like most about it; that its not a clean cut happily ever after kind of book.

Athol Dickson definitely has his own voice. I was first caught up by his writing style and then a bit perplexed by it as we flowed back and forth between worlds two centuries apart. Persevering is well worth it. As I set the book down I think of what I have learned about the human condition and the wars that are fought in the name of God, by both sides. I think about how everything we do impacts others, even for many generations.
