Charles Martin's specialty seems to be character development. The people in his novels have depth and emotion within everyday life. If you want an adventure, this isn't it. If you want to look into someone's soul, I think you'll like this book. While this is a "Christian" novel, it is not preachy.
A good basic introduction to the context, development, and ideas of existentialism. The author uses an adequately critical approach to the subject matter to make his discussion interesting.
I really enjoyed the main character in particular. He was very human. I like Christian novels which portray Christians that are realistic and can be related to by anyone who lives in the real world. The story was good. It kept my attention; was intellectually stimulating and emotionally engaging.
Characters, characters, characters
This is not a fast moving adventure. It's about character development. Charles Martin creates dialog between characters and within each character which I find remarkable. About half way through the book I'm thinking, "not much is really happening here, yet I can't wait to see what the two main characters will think and feel next." By the end of the book, I knew who they were as people. To me that made the listen fulfilling.
Good plot and chaacters
Good interpretation of characters and accents
A bit preachy through repetition of the Gospel message. Presentation seemed forced.
The characters and plot flowed well from the its predecessor. The book was interesting and believable without being overly intense. The book was a pleasant listen.
The characters and story were believable, and the story was written within a Christian framework without being preachy.
This is one of the more enjoyable books I've listened to in a while. The plot and characters make sense, the dialog is believable, and the story kept my attention without being too intense. The book was also well read.
I would compare this book to any by Dee Henderson.
Whitlow has developed an enjoyable plot with interesting characters. The story includes humor and seriousness, conflict and resolution, and a Christian framework without coming off as preachy.
