Nick Cordileone really brings David Brainerd to life! You feel as if you are hearing his voice as he grieves, rejoices, and records the events of his life.
At times I felt great pity for Brainerd who continually abased himself for his own imperfections. I wonder if he really ever felt loved by God as he should have.
Someone who doesn't mind fiction portrayed as non fiction.
This is not a question related to Dear Leader.
To my knowledge I haven't.
I feel this is a book BASED on fact. It's impossible to believe it all. It is poorly written. I hope the author is held to account for selling mostly-fiction as non fiction.
Sticking to the subject of the plight of North Korean refugees rather than self promoting.
Stop talking about themselves!
This book should be titled " Somwhere inside the mind of two sisiters in love with themselves. "
No. It definitely drags.
Depends on the book.
Few classics move slower than this one for me. Narrator Benny Clark's portrayal of the various charcters was poor.
Personal account of suffering Jewish boy.
Eating human stew.
He seemed to capture the youth of George.
It seemed bad news followed bad throughout till the end when he was rescued.
Someone desperately bored.
Several. My favorite is Simon Prebble.
I'm so sick of a plethora of background information being used as filler for short stories! This story could have been told (with a better narrator as well ) in a much more concise and exciting way.
Spirit of love and forgiveness.
Yes but the narrator sounds like a smoker. Not good.
More like this please!
Yes. It magnifies God.
The almighty God omnipotent
What can I say? To grasp God's power mentally is impossible- to fear and revere Him is duty.
Only a ww2 war crimes fanatic.
No. Very little interesting info about the convicts.
Huge hype that turned out to be a lame book.
No. I was ignorant about Scientology , now I'm not.
How desperate people are imprisoned by false teaching.
Seduction of the beautiful.
I hope that this is only the beginning to exposing this destructive cult. I'll be relieved when one day it crumbles into the dust.
You feel you actually are there with the characters as events unfold. There is an underlying optimism and absence of panic which I believe would dominate the emotions of people subjected to such a tragedy.
The isolation of Fort Repose. The romantic feelings of characters frequently referred to in the book.
Can't describe it. He's good.
Be more careful in buying dystopian books. I really liked 1984 but not this.
Don't get it if you want a gripping "can't put it down " read. It's so-so, that's all.
