Jonathan Gottschall’s The Storytelling Animal has been my pleasure reading for the past week. If I wasn’t in my final two weeks of Seminary I would probably write more, but I’ll just say that this book was really engaging. I blitzed through it. Gottschall explores how and why human beings are addicted to fiction… so much so that we even create it in our sleep! The notion of story serves no apparent purpose, yet it has defined/motivated/explained human activity for millennia.
