This book was very interesting and I was saddened by all that the author went through in her life. I learned a lot about a group of people that I am so unfamiliar with.
I have to say that the narrator of this book seems to be whining through most of the book. There were a couple of times I laughed out loud at her narration and I feel that a different narrator would have greatly improved this audiobook.
I loved the Dr Carson's refusal to become a victim because of his early circumstances.
Compelling story, complex characters, and a great ending.
I was surprised and delighted by the ending. You won't believe how it ends! The whole book you are wondering what to think of the characters and you really can't make a judgment without all of the information.
Audio is always better for me so that I can listen while driving or whatever else I'm doing.
The chapter on Jefferson's spiritual beliefs was wonderful. I really appreciated how this book put things into context and gave back story for many quotes.
Well written and performed. A must listen for those of us who seek truth.
I found Michael Vey: the Prisoner of Cell 25 entertaining, but not a compelling book which I'll recommend to my friends. I would recommend the book for a teenager though. Interesting story while exemplifying great morals.
I was disappointed in this book and stopped listening after several descriptions of sexual encounters involving: 3 people, bisexual relationships, and homosexual relationships. In fact, sex is a very casual thing between characters in this book.
I should have stopped listening after the first reference to these situations, but I gave the book another chance. Finally, it got so nasty that I had to turn it off.
I am a more conservative reader so I understand that there will be many who do not find these things offensive. I respect your right to your own opinion. I write this review so that other readers who don't enjoy these kind of sexual behaviors will be warned before buying the book.
