I'm a lone Wolf, I do what I want when I want!
Yes, this would be the first audiobook I would have them get. My friends would be sure to listen to the book over and over just has I have.
It feels like being at a table with someone tell you the story in person.
How doing right may not always workout, but always works out to be the best for you,
This was an excellent read! It tells the story of how we can love with everlasting results. I found it refreshing and sometimes spine tingling. This is one book which is off the beaten track.
Several different characters and their individual stories are intertwined in this enjoyable story. Some of the discoveries in the lives of the characters came a little too easily, too coincidentally, but otherwise it kept me guessing.
Always enjoy hearing this author's books! Holds my interest to be the very end. Leaves lots to think about. Very gifted writer! Thanks!
I love really really good suspense...historical fiction... "slice of life"...coming of age books...ok, anything! :)
I always keep my Charles Martin books because I read them over and over again. The way he weaves a story is amazing. It's A Slice of Life indeed...a very delicious slice :-)
Narration: Excellent, especially Unc!
Story: Interesting, fast-paced, and the regional flavor is correct, of course because we both live in this area.
I thoroughly enjoyed this carefully crafted novel. Martin is a superb storyteller and I came to love Unc and his wisdom! I look forward to trying another of Martin's work. It's not fine literature but for a general audience it was light, entertaining, and kindly thoughtful.
I love Charles Martin's books. However, there is a definite difference between earlier writings and the more recent ones. He tends to have 2 distinct themes, more than the love story aspect. This one is all over the place. It starts with the focus on one thing and pretty much drops it, while other story lines are developed. I have about an hour left and I don't even care how it ends. Too many moving parts. It has several novels all tangled up together, taking away the impact of any one theme.
The lack of profanity, the correct usage of the English language, and a compelling story made listening to Chasing Fireflies one of the most enjoyable reads since The Help.
I might. I love Charles Martin's books!
Unk. I liked his particular quotes.
He's a good narrator, but needs to slow down when reading.
