I really wanted to love this book that was supposed to be about helping a homeless man make something of his life. In reality, Denver Moore, the man who grew up as a Louisiana sharecropper and ended up on the streets of Ft. Worth, gave far more than he received. His story is inspirational and believable. He has retained his humility despite the success that his transformation earned him. Unfortunately, his liberator doesn't come off as well in the book, at least in the beginning. I would have stopped reading this if it hadn't been for a book group because it's difficult for me to trust a narrator with a puffed-up ego as big as the state of Texas! I hate to say it, but Ron Hall's transformation came at the expense of his wife, who was portrayed as an angel on earth. It's hard to know if this is true because she doesn't get to tell her story. She did get to deliver one of the book's best lines when Ron was rambling on about his Armani suits and his new Rolls-Royce. She asked him if that Rolls had a rearview mirror - and did he see a rock star when he looked in it. Loved it. This did turn out to be an inspiring story about prejudice, homelessness, forgiveness, suffering, and faith. With all of these worthy topics, it is understandable that the book is a little heavyhanded on the spiritual overtones. I wish the writing had been better and that it didn't focus so much on the tragedy that cemented the friendship. Still, it left me with a feeling of hope and that is certainly worth the price of a book.

Soon to be a Major Motion Picture

A dangerous, homeless drifter who grew up picking cotton in virtual slavery.
An upscale art dealer accustomed to the world of Armani and Chanel.
A gutsy woman with a stubborn dream.
A story so incredible no novelist would dare dream it.

It begins outside a burning plantation hut in Louisiana...and an East Texas honky-tonk...and, without a doubt, inside the heart of God. It unfolds at a Hollywood hacienda...an upscale New York gallery...a downtown dumpster...a Texas ranch. Gritty with betrayal, pain, and brutality, it also shines with an unexpected, life-changing love.

Bonus material in this special movie edition includes: a new epilogue with updates on the authors since the release of the original book; and the amazing story behind the movie, how it got made, and the incredible experiences while filming in Jackson, MS.

A Same Kind of Different As Me was slow to start . . . so slow I put it down after 65pages and have moved on. The writing is well, but the writer switches between two characters, but neither was anyone I cared anything about. I'm sorry that I couldn't read on, but it bored me and I put the book down.

The true story of how ...

The true story of how an unlikely friendship between two extraordinary men, one a succesful art dealer, the other homeless and bitter were drawn together because of the life of an even more extraordinary woman. Wonderful example of a totally unselfish life. Will be one of my all-time favorites.

One of the best books ...

One of the best books I have ever read. I laughed and cried. It truly inspired me and made me think about my world and the difference I could and should be making as a child of God.

Rated: AGreat book! Per...

Rated: A Great book! Perhaps living and working in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area and having spent much of my childhood in the old South made the book more special to me. In many ways, I could relate to Ron and Debbie Hall's life -- from their lives, to thier successes and struggles, to their fight against cancer, to their ministry to the "least of these". I found myself laughing and crying from chapter to chapter. Romans 8:28.

It has been a while since I have read this book. However, I read my son's review and found his perspective interesting - and knowing him as I do I understand where he is coming from. My self however, have a different perspective. I am a Counselor AT a Rescue Mission here in the Midwest. While I personally cannot fully identify with Denver's predicament, or even Ron's for that matter I can understand the hopeless of Denver and the disillusionment of Ron. I must say that I cringe when I read other reviewers passing judgement on Ron - saying he is being "Self Righteous" etc., Ron had come to the place in his life where he realized that he was in fact, NOT "Righteous" at all! This book is about the redemption of two men, with very different backgrounds. Ron and Denver did have one thing in common... A desperate need for real, genuine PEACE in their hearts.
