The Legacy

by Dan Walsh & Gary Smalley

Doug, the Liam Hemsworth doppelganger, is a college student that’s struggling with the same things most people struggle with at that age: drugs, alcohol, God, etc… He finds himself going down a darker and darker path until he realizes what is true and right. It’s a typical coming of age romance.

However, I have to be honest, this book really confused me. It’s two older men writing a love story/finding yourself/finding God story. It just felt very odd. There were a couple of things that I felt were off. First of all, it seemed like the tone was that of a YA book. Very simplistic. Secondly, it was very slow moving!! There were a lot of seemingly unnecessary scenes.

That being said, I know that people differ in style and taste. So, I am keeping that in mind. For me, it just didn’t work. I didn’t really love the characters because they seemed out of touch. The way they talked and acted certainly didn’t seem to be from today’s generation. Honestly, I really don’t think that everyone would feel that way about it though. The message is clear and hopeful. It may suit some.

Thank you, Revell, for this read. As always, this is my honest opinion. Here’s to many more!
