Couldn't wait to get back into my car again. I could relate to Brenda on so many levels. People on the verge of fame or already famous could benefit from this book that gives the 411 on the bumpy road to fame. Thanks for opening your heart . Thanks for the honesty and the testimony!
Entertaining. Engaging. Complex.
It is entertainingly complex as it tries to paint a contemporary picture of what the Bible described thousands of years ago.
His voice gives just the right amount of emotion for each character.
Bruce, the pastor.
I felt like I was there with the protagonist, experiencing the sites, sounds, and feelings of a time gone by.
Don't think so.
If I had nothing going on in my life I would have gladly listened from first utterance to last. I have a long commute and this made it more than tolerable. I couldnt' wait to get in my car on my way to and from work or the grocery store!
I felt like I was losing a good friend as I got towards the end of the book. It had kept me company for many miles in my car.
Encouraging, Enlightening, and Enveloping!
I loved Mac. He embodies the feelings, thoughts, failings, and frailties of humanity.
Listened to CrossRoads. Loved both performances equally.
What an interesting question! I think the title is perfect just as is, but since you asked I'll just say God Revealed. My title sucks. The title as the Shack is just perfect as is. And a movie should be made and it should still be The Shack. Or maybe Shack, the Movie...lol.
Seriously though, I hope it becomes a movie and is done well with all the CGI technology available now. Please don't let it be done poorly like some other christian movies that I could name but will not...:o)
I read the Shack the first time and it drew me in and I was sad when it was over. This time on Audible, having it performed drew me in even more. I delayed the ending as much as I could possibly stand because I didn't want it to end. I felt like Mac when he realizes he has to "go back". I didn't want to go back to my commute without having the world of The Shack. The only way to have improved the book was to have it read by Roger Mueller. I definitely didn't waste my money buying the book AND buying it on Audible the second time.
Good story. EXCELLENT Narrator! I love how the author makes the spiritual almost tangible.
Yes, I would recommend it. It's not The Shack, but it's a good story. By the end I was crying. But with The Shack I was crying at points throughout the book.
No, I have not, but his performance in CrossRoads was awesome. I only read The Shack. Now I'm going back to The Shack and this time on Audible. I can't wait. I hope there's something comparable to the Oscars for people who do these book performances, because Mr. Mueller deserves one.
Tony. But it's because the way the narrator acted the part of the downs syndrome child. I can still here him saying, "Tony."
Young's books, at the right time, should be given to the people of Newtown, CT. Anyone who has experienced tragedy, and that's all of us at some time or other, should have the experience of reading/hearing The Shack and Crossroads.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone. It is a testimony to how far the love of a parent can reach. It will inspire us all to be better people because little eyes are watching.
I loved hearing about Dwayne's mother. I loved the honestly raw details shared with the reader as well as how she slowly became more than anyone ever expected of her.
No I have not but he was EXCELLENT!!!!!! I believed it was Dwayne talking. I forgot it wasn't actually Dwayne. His ability to differentiate between characters, even between males and females, was expertly done!
Never give up and love hard.
I couldn't finish this, so don't take my 2 stars that it's not a well written/well narrated book. I just can't finish it. The story is written in such graphic detail, I just couldn't handle it. Yes, I could handle the movie, but I can't finish the book.
The Help "helped" the time pass by quickly on my hour long commute to and from work. It was like getting in the car with my good girlfriends and catching up on what was going on in their world. Well written. Excellent narration. Reading the book made seeing the movie a necessity. Congrats to Kathryn Stockett on her bravery and ability to write from such differing perspectives. I know I've already listened to the book, seen the film, but I MUST OWN an actual copy of the book.
