The thing I liked least about this was Julia's attitude. She is supposed to be a Christian but she's not kind to others. Especially those less fortunate. She is just not a nice person. So selfish and full of herself. She's the main character but more like a villain!
Already using that awful "F" word before the first 2 minutes. I can handle it used once or twice in a whole book when used by a sailor or somesuch but not by a teenaged girl.
I didn't continue listening. I don't like stories about preachers. When this one started talking about him meeting a preacher I had to stop listening. The narrator used "Um" and "a" in the narration that I'm sure were not in the print. It makes the author sound like she doesn't know how to use the English language.
This story was OK but it bothered me that she constantly refers to Gabriel as the Archangel. There is only ONE Archangel and if you read your scripture it's not Gabriel, but Michael. Jude vs. 9
I haven't enjoyed a listen this good in a while. I've enjoyed this author. I read the reviews and it helps a lot. This had a little bit of mystery. A little bit of history. A sweet love story. Not too predictable. The narrator was easy to listen to, also.
I wondered when the story was going to begin. Then once it started it was "OK". Not exceptional. The narrator did well. Not my typical kind of story even though I love stories about children. He goes into way too much detail about things that aren't pertinent to the plot or story. Maybe describing his workshop and wood working talent would be interesting to someone interested in that kind of thing. I like wood and wood building but don't need to hear about it in detail. The heart surgeon angle was interesting also but again, too much detail. I won't be buying this author again. I liked his "Chasing Fireflies" better but it wasn't remarkable either.
This story was ok. The narrator would pause between every sentence. I thought she fell asleep between chapter - slight exaggeration there! I finished it but it was a slow story anyway and then to have the narrator slow too. I would choose another audible book or buy this in paperback.
This romance just couldn't seem to happen And after several chapters of waiting for them to finish arguing I got weary of it. There comes a point when the author needs to wrap it up. There can only be so many misunderstandings and conflicts. Otherwise it's really not believable.
I didn't get very far on this one. When they constantly refer to Marjorie's parents with "the mother said" or "the father said" I was turned off. Can't they have names??! And so much of different individuals, "said this" or "said that" it was tiresome. Not well written, at all. Don't waste your credits or money on this one.
We were very disappointed with this story. I don't understand when people damn God over and over. Don't they know they are going to meet their Maker one day?! We got through part one and were still waiting for the story to happen. The Captain never says anything without prefacing it with GD!! at least twice. Really poorly written story. I understand that sailors cuss. But I don't think it needs to be demonstrated this much, if a story is worth telling.
The narrator was really good. I really enjoyed her voice. There were parts of this book that were quite cute. It was a really amazing story for the first half or so. Then it went on and on. Every so often you had to hear the whole intrigue and hows and whys of the crime all over again.
