This book was a huge disappointment. The story line is immature and disgusting! I have no clue what all the hipe is about for these books.
There really is no story. It just takes you from one poorly written sadistic sex scene to another.
Refused to perform such a poorly written book.
Embarrassing; I'm embarrassed to have anyone know I read this series.
The marketing agent for this book must be a genius! Definitely not sold on content or literary excellence!
Way too long.
There are no characters. It is a commentary
Not movie material.
This is a theological review of 'The Shack'. I found it somewhat informative and very tedious. It is like the NBC commentary after a political speech telling you what you should really think/believe about the speech you just listened to. It seems that 'The Shack' is a book that is best left between you and God. To pray and meditate over for the edification of Christ in your own heart. This book is preachy and de-personalized 'The Shack' for me. It is not clear to me why the author felt the need to write 'Finding God in the Shack'.
Challenging (in a good way), Life-changing (like Love), Inspiring (like I CAN do this!)
The garden at the shack, grown over with weeds without order then later finding out what the garden symbolized.
He performs this book like an old friend relaying an important life event to you. His reading of the book is very personal and makes the story very real.
I want to read this book again and have recommended it to all of my children and friends.
The plot is elementary and predictable, very simplistic with no depth or intrique. The fist book in the series was much more interesting which made this one disappointing. Too bad the author did not involve more of the characters we met in the first book.
Wondering how this book gets 3.5 stars in overall ratings. Having Amish ancestors myself, it is unrealistic in so many ways. It is a puzzle that never quite comes together. Sloppy in the police work, character development and accuracy. About twice as long as it needed to be and still didn't get to a satisfactory conclusion. The reader is dull and slow. I put the ipod on 2x for most of the book to get it over with. I enjoyed Castillo's first book and should have left it at that.
As a rule I do not chose abridged books and do wish this were available unabridged. This however, is so beautifully done and truly heart warming.
I was so excited to see this book available! The first books in this series were awesome. While I could not stop listening to this book till it was over and it did inspire me to listen to the complete series again, it was somewhat of a let down. I found it hard to keep track of who everyone was and how they fit in this story and the sequels. It has been several years since reading the other books and I agree with the previous reviewer who suggests this one would not make much sense if you have not read the other books. At times I wished there were family trees available for reference. The author seemed to throw people into the story without any development of their place or character. If you have read the other books, I would still recommend Heaven's Net Is Wide.
