Publisher's Summary

Ed is having a hard time - at work, in his love life and, well, generally. Then he meets an unlikely Buddhist - who drinks and smokes and talks his kind of language. Bit by bit, things begin to change...Ed doesn't always take Geoff's advice. Or, when he does he lapses at the crucial moment. His path to understanding is not a straight one, especially as life keeps throwing more and more 'stuff' at him. Often he fails - like most of us, in fact. But sometimes he manages to get it right. And when he does, surprising things begin to happen ...In The Buddha, Geoff and Me Edward Canfor-Dumas brings all his skills to bear in an absorbing story of everyday city life, where the characters stand out with all their human strengths and weaknesses, and the ending brings Ed - and perhaps all of us? - a hope we didn't necessarily expect. The Buddha, Geoff and Me - for anyone who's ever begun to wonder what the whole damn thing is all about.

Great introduction to Nichiren Buddhism

Great introduction to Nichiren Buddhism. I've been practicing buddhism for 15 years and still find this useful (do get tired of the main character though... so whingy)

I really wanted to like this book ....

Any additional comments?

I'm always on the lookout for Buddhist-themed novels and so downloaded this one despite it's mixed reviews. It's been in my library for a while and I've dipped in and out of it from time to time - wanting to like it and wanting to give it a full chance. I don't seem to be able to get into it. The story is a bit thin; the protagonist a bit 'in your face'. I like the idea of the novel, but don't feel that it is pulled off and have decided not to persevere with trying to finish it..

Easy guide to Buddha's ideas

This was an interesting listenand an easy start to learning about buddha's ideas. I am encouraged to go and seek more information. It was well read and the narrator's voice was engaging.
The story was interesting in and of itself even if you do not have an interest in Buddhism.
It is also a book to listen to again
