Mortal had a lot of storyline setup in it which made the first half of the book seem a little drawn out, however it was well worth the patience as we got to the latter half of the book and things come to a boil. I am definitely impatient for the 3rd book in the series now!
This book is similar in storytelling, character development, and progression to Red from Ted Dekker's Circle series.
The voice acting in this book does a good job of differentiating the characters, their personalities, and attitude throughout the story. Henry keeps things going at a smooth natural pace.
I'll try to address this without actualy ruining the story. In the final conflict in this book, Jonathan shows a side of himself that is contradictory to what most readers will expect him to. Considering that he's an anology of the messiah, this shows a side that we often choose to ignore or forget. Seeing how Jonathan responds to those in the conflict realy opens your eyes to the power and authority he actualy has.
Not as good as the first, but definitly worth the listen. I'm excited about where this series is going!
This book isn't about a "learning disorder". It explains the physiological difference between a normal brain and a dyslexic brain, explains how that change effects thinking patterns, and then breaks down those patterns into the different symptoms (both advantageous and disadvantageous) that they cause in the mind compared to the average mind.
There is a great balance between the technical and generalized knowledge. The authors do an amazing job of stepping us up from general knowledge to higher understanding without getting bogged down in too much of the technical issues.
This is a book about a physiological state, not a story. So, there is no favorite scene.
Personally, I did a little crying because it finally explained a few things about myself that I've known but couldn't fully understand.
This book has had an impact on my life! I don't say that lightly. ANYONE who is or knows someone who is dyslexic or has an undiagnosed mental condition should listen to or read this book!
Definitely! Forbidden follows in step to the storytelling style of Black from the Circle series by Tedd Dekker. I couldn't stop listening to the book! There are many storylines that are coming togather throughout the book leadign to a suprising and awesome end that leaves you salivating for the next book in the series.
The determination of the main character is insane. His passion for things is extreme leading him to follow his heart through some amazing action and emotional portions of the story in ways most would faulter.
He was engaging and realy drew you into the character, emotion, and excitment of each character.
The dead find life.
I don't have to drone about the reader's performance since there are an abundance of users who have done that already. He's not frustrating to listen to, but he's not engaging either.
The actual content of the book is well worth it though!
If you actualy pay attention to the book and comprehend what's being said, it will have an effect on how you watch people around you. I'm already one of those guys who natuarly que in on body language (or driving styles on the road) and can quickly estimate what kidn of person I'm looking at and how they'd react to outside influences. This book is great for explaining many of the smaller details that goes beyond the target's natural instincts and more into their current state of mind and intent. I can definitely see how this guy was successfull as an FBI interogator.
Check the book out to better understand what messages you're subconciously sending out and what others are saying without realizing it! Again, it will have an effect on how you watch and read the people around you!
This is instructional with a few stories, so there are no notable characters besides the author.
Be less instrutional in tone, and more expressive instead.
It has changed how I read people's intentions through their body language and posture.
