This book rings with a tinge of truth without being a heavy handed mind numbing gong of a christian story. The story was engaging and uplifting and carried some interesting scenes. The fluid nature of our destiny as related to our choices was handled as a positive theme. Some aspects of the story were predictable, and a few lines of discourse a bit too contrived, but over all the story kept you moving and interested. I wool like to see the author explore his puzzles and mysteries further. Good authors do not always make good narrators, but this wasn't too bad. He performed character voices pretty well.
It is saying a lot when I want to come back and read a book again. The perspective over time of one place makes you feel like you grew up there. The amazing character development in each short story speaks to me of a hero of literature. This book, with is generous helpings of humor both subtle and obvious, matched with genuine grief will leave you warm, and with a new perspective. If you like Richard Peck you may also like Wendell Berry.
The best dickens story I have listened to by far.
This should be a movie. A hint of Mystery and a great twist and set upon a wholesome and beneficial moral compass.
Superlative narration acting monotony and imbibed with Beautiful presence and consciousness of great acting.
Great! Finally a recording that does not exude what I feel is mediocrity, that makes angels sound somewhat awe-inspiring rather than echoing zombies, and a recording with music other than elevator music. There are nice transitions here between narrators and some great juxtapositions between gospel music and the meaning of the verses it accompanies. The narrators provide excellent interest and emotion to the verses.
