If, like me, you like to listen to books with your grandkids, leave this one alone. It is full of terrible language and other things children do not need to hear. I honestly cannot comment on the story, because I could not finish listening. It would be so nice if books had ratings like movies.
I read Kate Morton's Forgotten Garden and loved it. I purchased this, expecting something just as wonderful. In my opinion, this is not even close. The story is very slow, and just drags on and on. The narrator was just okay, but suitable for the type story it is, I guess. To be fair, I couldn't finish it, so maybe it gets better. I made it through the part one download, because I didn't want to waste my credit on a book I didn't finish. Finally decided I'd rather waste my credit than my time.
This was a very good book. It told a great story with some surprising twists and turns. I would buy this author's books again.
Loved it! Loved it! Loved it! Best narration I've ever heard in all my years of listening to audiobooks.
This was the first time, and the last, that I chose a book by this author. The story was great, kept me interested. The language was hard to listen to, however. Not only the "f" word, but every obscene word describing both male and female body parts was used. Not interspersed throughout the story, but used over and over and over and.....! This author needs to expand her vocabulary. An occasional such word could be overlooked, but this was too much. If that doesn't bother you, she tells a good story. However, it was much too much for me. I will never buy anything by this author again.
I've read a couple of Kate Morton books and loved them all. This one did not disappoint. It's great.
I usually enjoy Ted Dekker's books, but this was the exception. My husband and I listened to it while traveling. It was actually hard to finish. The characters would have conversations and say the same things over and over and over and........I suggest you skip this one.
To begin with, this does not sound like an audiobook at all, but simply someone reading a book. Most offensive are the sexual references throughout a book that is based on Biblical characters. I assumed I was ordering Christian fiction. This book is most definitely not that. If there is one star on this review it is because the site will not allow me to give it zero stars.
