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.
A different narrator
The most interesting was presenting the reality of spiritual warfare.
The least interesting was presenting it as a necessity of entering another person's soul.
I would try another of his books if another narrator performed it.
I think this would have been better if I had read, rather than listened to, the book. I believe the author tried to wear too many hats in reading it himself. The story was possibly better than I think it was, but in my opinion, was flawed by the performance.
Not really. Story was just okay and narrator was not good.
During dialogue portions of the book, he sounded like a kid learning to read and sound out words. Didn't sound natural.
Not really. Characters were not interesting enough for me to care about what else happens to them.
This is shown as the 4th book in The Tides of Truth series. I'm not sure why. None of the characters appeared in the other 3 books. It had absolutely nothing in common with the others, except that it was a Christian book. There was no continuity with the others.If you buy it expecting to see what else is happening in the lives of the characters from the previous books, as is the usual case in a series, you will be very disappointed. I usually like Robert Whitlow's books, but this one just doesn't measure up.
Chosen a different narrator
It was very hard to understand what she was saying, her voice was so whiny.
I can't say because I couldn't finish book.
I bought this book over a year ago and couldn't listen to it. I tried again a second time a few months later and still hated it. Today, I tried again a third time, hoping I could like it. I couldn't. It wasn't me...it was the book. I actually listened for 2 hours today, but it never got any better. To be honest, I couldn't tell you what the story was even about. It was that hard to understand the narrator. Wish I had saved my credit.
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.
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.
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.
