This book makes you look very differently at little things. Things you think, things you see, etc. It has you understanding exactly how the enemy works to distract you from the right course.
Well, the entire book is letters written by "your affectionate Uncle Screwtape" so he is the only character.
I'm not sure I could pick a favorite, I liked the entire book.
Not sure this can be a film
Christian or not, I would highly recommend this book to anyone. The reader has a mesmerizing voice, and it will just plain make you think about everything that goes on each and every day.
This is just a logical book. It tells you what Christianity is. There's no fluff, there's no "I'm better because I'm a Christian" in this, but rather it's just a logical basis of what it means to be a Christian. Not the church goers you see at the office, not even a lot of the churchgoers you see at church but what the religion itself is, and what it means. I am a Christian and this was the first christian book I've ever listend to or read that breaks down Christianity logically. I am a numbers person and very logical minded, not an emotional based person and I thought it was fabulous just how simple he made it to understand. I would recommend this to Christians and non Christians alike.
This book has no characters as it is a summation of lectures put together in book form.
I thought he was a great narrator.
The entire book was so logical. There were very many "ah ha" moments for me.
I have never had a work of fiction actually hurt my heart like this one did. I've read a lot of fiction that moved me and caused me to cry, but this one physically hurt my heart because these characters, while fiction, represent what people feel and think. The Choices they make can damn them forever and in this depiction, they just didn't fully understand or get it. That is the part that hurt. Selfishness was so obstructrive to their own site that they couldn't see the truth even though it was right in front of their eyes. It made me wonder just how many people here on earth may not be saved because of these very things. I would recommend this book so that people can possibly see.....damnation isn't something I'd wish on anyone.
What I liked most is that this made me re-think how I see and feel about anyone. We are all broken, but so many of us end up finding ourselves judgemental of people for whatever reason. Some of the characters in this truly couldn't see that their behavior was selfish. They were so broken that they didn't even realize they were manipulating others or doing anything.
Robert was awesome! He made each character believable. And his voice kept my attention fully.
I was actually just thinking that I'd love to see this as a movie, but a tagline? I have no idea.
I thought I would enjoy this, but as I listened I realized I was just not terribly interested in knowing Steve Jobs. He was a bit of a jerk and an eccentric and the more I listened, the less interested I became. i never actually finished listing to this. Not even sure I made it through half the book to be honest. I tried. I feel like it was a waste of my first credit.
It wasn't the narrator I didn't like, it was teh story.
not for me, no
Just wasn't for me.
