I saw a few comments about The Story leaving out parts of the Bible..absolutely, it is not a translation or even a paraphrase. The purpose of this book was to allow all members of a family to study the same time in Bible history at church and then give them common themes and events to talk about. It does leave out lots of what I consider "important" things, but since we were doing it in "adult" church and my grandsons were doing the kids version we all were studying the same part of God's upper story together. Without taking part in the study that happens along with this book it may be difficult to understand the purpose of this format.
The reader has not let me down, but the author sure has with this one! I have always liked the Breeds story line, and will probably read the next book, just to make sure I get the overall story arc covered, but I don't think I can live through listening to the same conversation 25 times again!
This book could have been written in half the pages! Lawe and Diane have the same conversation... can I trust him, does he trust me, will he let me be the woman I need to be, can I trust her, if she loves me she will do things my way ..yada yada yada....at least 25 times in the book, and honestly, I understood the conversation the first time. Got it, move on...please!
I like Brianna, she is a good reader. Jonas' voice got on my nerves simply because of where she pitched it, but no big deal.
As I have already said...very disappointed. It is hard when you wait for a long time for a book in a series to come out and then when it does...it lets you down in a big way. Have had a couple of other writers do this to me many many books in....maybe it is time to tie up the loose ends and move on to another series, for both the reader and the writer.
