Thought provoking, exciting and suspenseful.
I have never read a book by Terri Blackstock that I did not thoroughly enjoy and the Restoration Series was better than any of the others. It is good clean reading, but suspenseful. I have wondered many times, since reading these books, what I would do if it actually happened. Makes you think.
WWII stories and Mysteries make me Happy!
Books like that make me feel good about being an actual Christian!
It's not so simple for most of us to be Christians especially in hard times. the characters reflect what happens when the Bible has to be applied in real life situations especially when your own survival is at stake.
Christians also experience shame, pride, and fear. We're trying to live our lives as Christ would. The Branning family in this book struggled with this and it made me glad to know I'm not alone.
The author is a true novelist and makes the book humorous, amorous and a blessing to those who read it.
I love the series!
wellwritten, good character development.. and Dick Hill as reader brings everyone TO LIFE!
All of the personalities ! I dont know how he keeps them all straight.He is amazingly talented.
What if it all came grinding to a halt??
The plot is very amaterish. I could not relate to or care about any of the characters. There were few surprises. I hated the narration.
The story lacked any sophistication or suspense.
Maybe if he didn't try any women's voices.
None. It is singular in that I stopped listening which I have never done before.
Doug- we know the prinicples of scripture, are we failthfully appling them?
Brandon parents- After the story,How could they have raised the children with great spiritual insight and growth before the event- so the events themselves would have been a little easier? Food for thought.
Pointed out ideas that could happen in a disaster- I should be more prepared just incase something happens, that way I could be a better servent of Christ, a blessing to my family and friends.
The book is OK. Not may favorite, but I have enjoyed it. The narrator is by far the most annoying and whiny one I have come in contact with. His reading is very distracting! Even if this was my favorite book, I would dread hearing this man read..
This, the first in a four part series dealing with EMP-like effects of pulses from an exploding star, is the best one. The characters are far less than perfect, and the suspense level is fairly well done. The outcome is predictable and the preaching is a bit heavy-handed. I recommend reading this one, maybe the next one, but would most likely avoid the third and fourth ones in this series.
I really enjoyed this book. I have spent much time thinking about the premise since listening to it. I keep wondering how I would cope with the sudden loss of all "conveniences". I think we all need to be reminded sometimes of the need to remember what's really important. The main character was pretty annoying, but I liked the book, anyway. I'll probably read more by this author.
The technolgical basis of this book is so unsound as to undermine the entire foundation of the plot. The narrator's voice characterizations give it the whiney feel when attempting to convey the dialogue of the young people. I could only finish this audio book by listening when I had no other alternatives such as XM radio or another audio book. I feel this was the worst book I purchased since I joined in 2001.
