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.
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.
It seems very choppy. I can tell when there is a period....but then the reader almost comes to a full stop on commas.
Haven't been able to get into the book that far to tell.
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 .
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.
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.
I have not listened to Dan Stevens before, but he did a fine job. I could definatelyenjoy any other performances he's done.
Didn't laugh or cry (not my style), but wanted to hear it again (and did).
