He makes the characters come alive
I enjoyed this book from start to finish.
Tell us about yourself! I really do know how to spell repetition!
Held my attention throughout the story. Easy listening.
A feel good story, refreshing in these times.
Luke confronting his father again.
Luke, a person that learned leasons with morality.
It was pleasant listening to the narrators voice.
I had several copies of the print version but I've gave them as gifts at Christma, so I never had a chance to read the book version. This audio version was excellent.
Good detail of the main character's life that was read as a dairy.
Yes, very well voiced and narrated.
The main character Mr. Crisp, but I would also like to know more about his father and his views on life.
Good lessons to learn about life and how one views it, and the importance of building a relationship between employer and employee. One should learn how to give back within the community and also learn to have gratitude.
I really enjoyed listening to this book. I had a hard time putting it up.
I love the ending
They were all spectacular.
The ending was the best. The hero's wife too angry in story.
Distinct, believable, good to listen.
Richard Paul Evans writes a very straightforward and sensitive retelling of The Prodigal Son. It's a book which does exactly what you listen for it to do -- pulls at the heartstrings, makes you take stock, and compliments the holiday season quite nicely. It's not rocket science, it may be a little bit formulaic -- but Mr. Evans writing style is straight ahead and he does have a nice ear for contemporary dialogue.
John Dossett is what made this book better than average. I've listened to him read Mr. Evans holiday offerings a couple of time now, and I look forward to his narration -- perhaps even more than I look forward to the story. He infuses such warmth into the story and characters with his voice. Bravo!
Evans has a simple style that touches the heart. I do not consider this to be "great literature" but it imparts hope and shows the positive side of human nature. Evans incorporates the importance of faith without being sanctimonious. Besides these things, I love a happy ending!
In an ego filled world, the story was right on target.
How money destroys, while relationships build.
Imagine if businesses would again start to think of their employees as humans.
Such a upbeat book, gives you a good feeling when you are finished listening.
Luke Crisp, he seemed like a all around nice guy
