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'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.

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.
This novel captivates from the start and does not disappoint to the finish. Characters you admire and root for and first rate wordsmithing. I look forward to see what else this author has written.
I'd never heard of this author, but am glad I took a chance.
This book had me hooked from the beginning. Real people, amazing humor, complex relationships, southern history, barely enough description to do it justice. I will look for more from this author. And the narrator – Wow! I will most definitely add Patrick Peterson to my list of favorites.
Chasing Fireflies was the first Charles Martin book for me. I was quickly hooked. The depth of the characters, the story development, and the precious and meaningful conclusion all speak to the heart and soul. Thank you Charles Martin for supremely entertaining reading that also causes one to look into human nature at it's most imperfect positive and negative existence!
I've now read most of Charles Martin's books. God truly has given him a gift! Throughout a myriad of other authors I've read, whose stories eventually seem to quickly take on a similarity, Martin's books are each completely separate with regard to story, characters, theme, and prose. Not only entertaining, these stories hold a meaning for humanity ... not inconsequential for an author or reader! I have now introduced Martin's books to others, and they are helplessly hooked as well!
This was my first of Martin's books. It was a while ago. I need to re-read for the favorite!
Yes!!! I would if I could, but I can't!
Thank you, Charles Martin.
As a reading teacher, I was extremely adverse to (oh my!) listening to audiobooks, but my sister convinced me of the fact that I could listen as I traversed the mundane chores of life. Your narrators have been perfect with each book I've heard so far. If I have a complaint, it would be that it's extremely difficult to hit that stop button when I really must. As a Christian, I so appreciate the gentle yet meaningful thoughts you share in your stories. Thank you for that.
I've introduced your books to many others. They are all, as well, hooked!
Holesome, entertaining, heart warming
When Chase finds out the real story.
Unc, he reminds me of just a gentle giant. With a heart as big as himself.
Nice family story worth the read.
Always enjoy hearing this author's books! Holds my interest to be the very end. Leaves lots to think about. Very gifted writer! Thanks!
