Yes. Enjoyable read. I would definitely recommend "Memory of Running" first.
Yes. I've read two so far and really like his style. I always feel that he is truthful and honest and willing to share his vulnerabilities as well as his characters. I'd say that he finds nobility in the common life.
Ron's performances are sincere and subtle. They gently invite you into the character's world.
Hmm... probably Bobby.
I have enjoyed so, so many books on audible and am looking forward to so many more. That being said, C.S.'s books rank not just among the enjoyable, but among the necessary.
What I love so much about C.S. Lewis's approach to further learning of Christianity, is that he holds strongly to the belief that approaching Christianity does not mean that we must lessen our intellect. In fact, in "Mere Christianity", C.S. challenges us to move to a deeper level of understanding of our faith and to learn and grow our intellect of all matters to the best of our ability.
We find answers by knowingly searching the truth in our options.
C.S. Lewis is truly a brilliant writer. It would be difficult to walk away from his works without gaining productive knowledge.
Unapologetic - Sobering - Beautiful
Haven't listened to many of them, but absolutely loved this one!
Was just recently turned on to Flannery O'Connor and love what I've read so far. Her approach and messages are hard-driving and beautiful at the same time. Excited to read more of her work!
I love the author's execution of multiple timelines and the haunting undertones she has throughout her stories.
Though a very different story, "The Secret Keeper" might be talked about in the same conversation as "The Forgotten Garden" because of the format.
I'll probably read anything that Kate Morton writes. If you are new to her writing, I would start with "The Forgotten Garden" and "The House at Riverton". Read these two first and there will be a good chance that you'll hop on board with her future stories. Great author, beautiful writing.
I loved Smithy, such an unusual lead character. His journey was so sincere and honest and real. I didn't feel the need for certain "things" to happen- once I was by Smithy's side, I was simply along for the ride.
Smithy- although many of the characters came off the page for me on this one.
Yes. This was in-line with the others that I've heard from him. He's so gentle in his delivery. He is very inviting and doesn't try to convince you to come into the story- you just want to.
Plan all you want... but it's the unknown distances that give meaning and purpose to our journeys.
More please Ron :)
I greatly enjoyed the mystery and atmosphere of the story, but what hit home with me most was the challenges some of the character faced as fathers.
Yes. I didn't feel a huge sense of urgency, but I did stay interested in what was coming next.
Probably David, the Main Character
In the dark, wet corners of the rainy New York City night, a freelance photographer follows the twisted path of a disturbing mystery while battling his own challenges as a father.
Great read! Thank you Mr. Cook and thank you Mr. Bray.
