The story I would recommend, but just not in the audio format. The narrator almost put me to sleep.
Yes, the narrator was a different narrator and they put the book alive.
Yes, the book was entertaining
The narrator got the accents down pat and kept me interested.
I am so glad that Audible put a rating for performance, because in the old rating system I would have had to give the entire story as one star.
This book is supposed to be an Action/Adventure a sort of Indiana Jones adventure, but the narrator was so boring that I thought he was reading a Jane Austin book. I almost didn't finish it. If you are interested in this book I would suggest reading it.
Allison went from being a rich teen to out of work forty something. When God tells her to buy a Harley she has no way of paying for it, but somehow God provides the money. She goes from being what her church wants her to be to an outcast because she reaches beyond their comfort zone. It makes you want to ask yourself which Christian will you be?
Of all the characters we meet I loved the teenage boy Desmond the best, the reader brings his character to life in such a way it's both humerous and real.
I understand there is a second book and I can't wait to either read or listen to it.
This book gave insight on how Nathan became the man he is today. You also saw the scarier side of Nathan, it showed that you couldn't go through what he did and not be damaged. There was a point in the book where Nathan had a huge decision to make, in my opinion any decision he made would have been the right one. Did he make the right decision? I think he did what was right for him. The only thing I was kind of disappointed in is that I feel there is still more that needs to be worked out emotionally with his father. Maybe next book he can deal with the unresolved issues with his father. I'm glad that I have this book in my library.
There were too many plots going on in this book for me. I don't want to give any storyline away, but this novel had a war, an outbreak, multiple assassination plotted/attempts, etc, etc, etc. The narrator spoke in a very monotone voice and the book was difficult to get into because of the plot line and the narrator. And simply put this book was too long. If you really want to enjoy the book, I would read it in print. I do still love Jack Ryan though.
This book has action, adventure, some sadistic, and a little comic. So, if you want a book that has it all, this is your book. As with most books this author left the story open for a sequel, but as far as I can tell he has not written anything since. And that disappoints me. I also love the narrator, it made this book even more interesting.
At times this book was very intense which is very Ted Dekker. Then on the flip side he confused my that is not the normal standard of Ted Dekker.
Although this book answered many questions it left more questions than answers. Like what happened to Janae, and what about Monique?
There was not too much interaction with Thomas and his family, in fact this book really didn't have too much of Thomas in it.
This book has a bit of vampires in it. I don't know if Ted was trying to profit off the whole Twilight theme. I just didn't get it.
I would have really given this book 2.5 stars because I thought it was deserving of better than two stars but not quite three stars.
This was a good concept for a book but at times I found there was too much of a good subject matter and plus I really didn't see that much interaction with the described main characters.
In my opinion this was not James Scott Bells best book but it was okay. I would rather buy Try Dying, Try Fear on audiobooks, now those are books worth listening to over and over.
