Rich tapestry is a much used phrase, maybe overused; however The Religion is definitely a rich tapestry. The characters are alive. I cared about them. They wove themselves and their situations into my waking hours -- and some of my dreams. Vivid! Alive! The story was whole, a tale, a spoken ballad to be sung again and again. Unlike many books who tell a story to get to the end - the climax; this book lives, has a past, present, and future. It allows for a full range of emotions to be experienced and treasured. Thank you, Tim.
I was lost in the first paragraph and never found my "feet." I listened for about 30 minutes and gave up trying to follow the plot. I didn't care about any of the characters nor what happened to them. Language is very stilted and "square." Wish there was a way to return it and get my money back, so to speak.
The only good thing I can say about the 30 minutes of this book that I managed to get through is that the readers had wonderful voices and the accents were great. The story was boring and there was nothing to keep me interested. I found myself not really caring what happened to anyone. I just wanted another book. I usually manage to finish at least one part but I just couldn't make myself listen to this anymore. I certainly wouldn't recommend it to anyone unless you really like wordy, Victorian-style novels.
