    Virgil Flowers kicked around for a while before joining the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. First it was the army and the military police, then the police in St. Paul, and finally Lucas Davenport brought him into the BCA, promising him, "We'll only give you the hard stuff." He's been doing the hard stuff for three years now, but never anything like this.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    When listening to the sample and reading the audible summary of the book, there is no indication of all the bible and religious "language" .I think those references slow down the story. If books that have this interlacing were noted, I'm sure there is a big audience that would love it. For me, remove the religious aspect in the book.


    Would you recommend Dark of the Moon to your friends? Why or why not?

    No and yes. Almost every "scene" of the book has a religious reference. A certain segment of the "reader" population would really like this book.


    How could the performance have been better?

    It seems very choppy. I can tell when there is a period....but then the reader almost comes to a full stop on commas.


    What character would you cut from Dark of the Moon?

    Haven't been able to get into the book that far to tell.


    Any additional comments?

    There should be a way to be able to know which books have religious overtones before purchasing the book. At least with a hard copy, a person can glance thru the book instead of being giving a 5 minute, interesting snippet .

    From the author who's inspired millions worldwide with books like Tuesdays with Morrie and The Five People You Meet in Heaven comes his most imaginative novel yet, The Time Keeper--a compelling fable about the first man on earth to count the hours.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    My goodness yes! I didn't want to stop listening. There was good flow to the story,there was ideas that I wanted to stop and ponder, but I wanted to hear more of thestory. I've had the book on my iphone for 5 days and listened to it twice. This is onlyone of a couple of books that I want listen to over and over, knowing the story andhow it ends, but want or need the inspiration.


    What other book might you compare The Time Keeper to and why?

    I don't know if this might be too much of a stretch, but "Last Lecture" comes to mind as a comparison. And definately the other Albom books.


    Have you listened to any of Dan Stevens’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to Dan Stevens before, but he did a fine job. I could definatelyenjoy any other performances he's done.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Didn't laugh or cry (not my style), but wanted to hear it again (and did).
