I have not read the print version.
I would compare the author's approach and story telling with the works of Wade Rouse.
No, I have not.
Maybe more than one setting, but could easily be heard in it's entirety on a long drive.
Fun new author. He has promise!
Thank you so very much Audible for sharing this great selection of stories with us. This was a great blessing in my life.
This is a story of a boy. I love stories, things that are told as though they were something that I listened to from my family, and this meets that criteria. This is a good, old fashioned story of a boy's life and growing up in America. It reminds me of Mark Twain in some aspects, as it does not dwell upon the down trodden side of life, but it does not eliminate it either.
If you like simple, southern stories then you will truly enjoy The Water Seeker.
I am a Frank Peretti fan from way back, but I have to say that this is his best writing.
Illusion is a story of mystery and the human condition. It will keep you listening and you will sink into another time and space to feel the story of these magicians. It is a well developed story with an unlikely narrator.
I do wish that Mr. Peretti would let someone else do the audio. I believe that someone more practiced in this field would bring much more to the story, but don't let this deter you from the book. It is most definitely worth hearing or reading.
I chose this book because I am working through the list of 1000 books to read before you die. I went in blind, without reviews or word of mouth information and was pleasantly surprised. Do not allow the fact that the protagonist is a hermaphrodite deter you.This is a wonderful coming of age novel.
The book takes you through a touching immigration story of a Greek family that you will come to love. For me, this came due to a wonderful reader who captures the ethnicity of the family.
Middlesex is an excellent choice that will take you back to your growing up years!
Yes, this was excellent. The reader was exceptional and the story engaging.
I would compare this to the books of Francine Rivers.
I identified most with the mother. She struggled with keeping her children safe and keeping her faith as well.
Strangely enough the father was the most memorable character. This was the flawed character in the story.
Easy listening, good story from a true storyteller.
I have not physically read the book, rather have only listened to the audio.
Good mystery. Reminds me of Poe in many ways.
I think that the speaker provided a more authentic setting with his voice that I would have conjured just reading the book, as I do not have a point of reference for this time.
I was moved by the times that the characters tried to apologize to the other and stop the feud.
I would highly recommend this book. I will listen to this more than once. I think that hearing it again will illuminate the ending for me.
