Totally wierd story. Had some trouble with Peretti 's portrayal of the female characters. Still trying to get my mind around the ending. Peretti is a great story teller.
Listening to this was more work than pleasure. It's a toned down Harlequin romance novel encountering science fiction. It has countless hours of anti-climactic, cliffhanger type vignettes. The author states that it's really about the Holy Spirit and Christ's love, etc., however the only sequence involving serious prayer is when a group of atheists, agnostics and materialistic non-believers say a prayer with two "Christians" for a successful Vegas show. In fact, one of the main "Christian" characters uses his money to set himself up in what sounds to be an extravagant, multi-million dollar mansion, complete with a full-time servant. Nice, Frank!
Something really Christian in nature.
I think all characters acted fundamentally the same. They were all motivated by self interest even at the detriment of others.
I would isolate the main storyline to make it a 10 minute read.
No a Peretti style as one could expect, but all the more fun to listen and to and see how it boggles your mind as to what kind of outcome there could be. Magic, Sci-Fi, Love, Crime, Thriller would be my summery. Enjoy the book!
Definitely worth your time. What a great story! loved the myriad of perspectives and how seamlessly the story wound thru them all.
My husband & I listened to this book on a road trip and oh man, what a story!! We were completely caught up with the characters & couldn't fathom how it would end. It's written by a seasoned pro & that shows. My husband & I both HIGHLY recommend this book!
