I think it is beyond saving.
Not sure, exempt that it will not be by this author.
Too numerous to choose. There were so many!
I'm not sure why I expected, but this was horrible. Don't think because the title suggests it's a type of fairy tale that you can listen with children. You absolutely should not!
Definitely.....in a year or two. It reminded me to not judge people by what I see. It was heartwarming, a who done it, and just a beautiful book.
I don't want to give anything away. I'll just say it was the last scene that took place in the governor's mansion.
It was interesting enough, but I prefer to stretch out and savor the really good books.
I'm not sure if this was classified under Christian fiction or not. It did have Christians in it, but did not read as "religious". If you aren't a believer, please don't let that stop you from getting this book. You won't be offended nor disappointed,
I loved the way it told the story in flashbacks, and kept you wondering about the secrets to be discovered.
I don't normally like narrators with British accents, but this was an exception. She did an excellent job. I wasn't overly impressed with her depiction of a few characters, especially the pompous ones. I particularly loved the voice of Dolly. Ms. Lee did a good job of conveying the characters' personalities by her rendition of their voices.
The elderly mother, in hopes she would share some of her wisdom....and secrets.
More actual storyline and less explicit sex
Let me imagine what was happening in the numerous sexual encounters, rather than giving details. And ho hum details, at that.
This book is filled with explicit sexual content, so please don't listen with children. I like the old movies that went to blackouts when the couple became amorous. You knew what was happening....you just didn't have to watch. Likewise, with books. I would have preferred to listen to more actual storyline than the numerous descriptions of people having sex. And not very imaginative sex, at that. What a waste of the author's talent.
No. The story wasn't bad, but characters got stuck in conversations that went on and on and on...saying the same things over and over and over...
Sure. I've liked some of her other books.
Not regionally authentic!
It was Christian fiction, but not a religious book. The characters seemed like real people, with real flaws, not cookie cutter Christians, all alike.
None come to mind. I like Christian fiction where Christians aren't presented as super spiritual, but more like us real life Christians. People who love the Lord but still make bad choices and have to face life's problems.
She could have shortened the audio time by reading a little faster. I almost gave up early in the book, I was so put out at how slowly she read. Glad I didn't....would have missed a good book.
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.
Maybe. I bought this a few years ago because I'd listened to another book by the author and liked it. This one was soooo boring that I quit listening. I recently listened to another by the same author and liked it, so decided to try this one again. Narrator did a good job.
Condense it! I listened to nearly 6 hours before I gave up on it this time. She could have told in 30 minutes what was told in those 6 hours.
Job well done.
If it did, I never made it to that part.
I wrote a negative review the first time I tried to listen to this book. I asked Audible to remove it, because after enjoying another of the author's books recently, I wanted to give it another chance. This might have been one of her earlier books, because I have enjoyed a couple that she wrote. I absolutely cannot recommend this one, however.
