Giving a "voice" to each character helps to make it real.
It was a bit slow in the beginning, but I realize Robert Liparulo was building the story. Once it got started, it was fast paced and exciting. It had lots of twists and turns.
Oh yes ... Audible needs to offer us the sequel!
I love Robert Whitlow's books, and this is his best ... so far! Since I live in the South, I am familiar with some of the locations he uses in his books. He is an expert at weaving together a Christian message and an exciting and believable legal drama. I love that he made his main character, Tom Crane, a strong, confident attorney but at the same time he was a Southern gentleman with manners! I definitely recommend this book!
Charles Martin definitely has his own style of writing. I really enjoyed The Mountain Between Us ... what a huge twist at the end! So, I decided to trying Chasing Fireflies. It started out very difficult to read due to the horrible child abuse. I loved the character of Sketch, but my heart broke for him. I almost stopped listening. But, I am so glad I continued. Again, the ending has a huge twist, but it was so worth it! This story is a great example of "life is not fair" but God is still on the throne and is always in control. I would give this book 4 1/2 stars if possible.
I enjoyed this book. The problems these ladies faced are as common today as during the war. This was my first book by Robin Hatcher, and I will definitely seek out her books again. I love reading Christian fiction. You can still have the great stories but without all the foul language that does not add anything to the message. The narrator has the perfect voice for this type book. I encourage others to read this and enjoy!
This is a very good, heartwarming story about a dog and those folks whose lives he touches. I would have given this book 4-1/2 stars if possible because there is a four-letter word in there twice. Very disappointing as this was described as a family story. It certainly did not add to the story. I don't appreciate this language and certainly do not want my grandchildren to hear it. Other than that, I enjoyed it very much. I'm taking a chance and listening to the next book ~ A Dog Named Christmas. Hope it turns about to be a true family book.
No. I have listened to some of James Scott Bell's before and liked them. Basil Sands did a good job of narrating.
Not now. I was VERY disappointed in this book. It was way too short and did not tie up all the loose ends. The 3 short stories at the end were OK, the one about the mafia being the best one.
Add another 100+ pages to the book and finish the story!
This was my first.
I usually like it when the author narrates because they know where they want emphasis placed in conversations and situations. Ms. Gauthier did an OK job of narrating. She did not change her voice for different characters. And, the quality of the narrating was extremely poor. When she would raise her voice, as if a character was shouting, it sounded like she was either in a phone booth or a warehouse.
No, she needed to finish this book. It ended too abruptly. The story was a bit far-fetched to begin with. There were loose ends that could have been tied up in this book. I would not listen to a sequel.
Get more experience and provide an ending. I don't like wondering what happened.
I have not read the book, but the audio version is super good! The narrator is great with the voices. I loved his Southern accents!
The views of the different religions. Randy Singer had to do a TON of research to write this book, and it paid off.
The cave scene toward the end of the book.
Judge Finney. I would love to hear stories about his cases and life as a judge. But, it would be fun to spend time with the Swami, too! I loved his character!
Randy Singer proved that a book can be exciting, suspenseful and, at times, funny ... without offensive language. I highly recommend this book as well as any of the others he has written. I would have given it more stars if you offered them!
Left Behind because this is a book about prophecy.
He did a phenomenal job! I love the way his voice was altered when he was talking on speakers. He also did a great job with the Southern accents.
The story is really good, and I like Mel Odom's writing. There were some Scriptural issues that were disappointing.
With Frank Peretti being the author and the narrator, it brings the book alive. He puts the emphasis where he intended it to be.
We have listened to several of his books. Monster was my favorite ... until Illusion. Frank Peretti narrated both of these books. Illusion has such a great story and ending.
This book is clean, it is exciting, and it keeps you guessing. My husband and I highly recommend it.
Yes ... please offer more books by Creston Mapes!
