Book Review: The Abstinence Teacher

The Abstinence TeacherThe Abstinence Teacher by Tom Perrotta

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I had picked this up and put it down in a few bookstores before I saw it for $1 at the Housing Works booksale. Sold! It’s a quick book to read – most of it I read while standing on the subway on the way to and from work – but that’s not to imply that it’s fluffy. The book deals with some heavy subjects (primarily religious tolerance, but also individual spirituality, sexuality, and addiction), but the story moves along quickly without getting mired down in moralizing or theory. It found it both thought-provoking and highly entertaining, and it was definitely worth more than the dollar I paid for it!
