This is one of the best books I've listened to. I couldn't put it down. Even though the author took some liberties with the story of Abraham and Sarah, it was very well written. The reader was so believable. I can't wait to read the other books by this author.
Having grown up in the mountains of western North Carolina, I was especially enthralled with this novel. Not only was it a great novel, but it was also history of North Carolina. Cold Mountain was a great book. However, I must say this one surpasses it by far. I hope it will become a movie also.
This is one of the best books I have read. It's funny, sad, historical, romantic, and brings back memories of my youth growing up in the south. The dialog was excellent and the narrator is superb. I only wish it was unabridged.
I thoroughly enjoyed "At First Sight"; however, the reader needs to spend more time in the eastern part of North Carolina. Having grown up in Western North Carolina, I'm familiar with most accents. This reader makes the characters of this book sound like they came straight down from the mountains.
I'm not even half finished with this historical fiction; but it has to be the best yet. The drama and dialogue couldn't be better. It would make a great movie without the necessity of rewriting the script. I look forward to finding more novels by this author.
I haven't even finished the book yet and already decided it's one of the best I've read in a long time. I enjoy ancient literature; and in my opinion, this may well be a modern classic for years to come. I'd like to see James Patterson write more like this.
