I did not have the print version, however, I love audio books because I can listen to them while multitasking with other things - even driving. I enjoyed listening to it because I hunger for the Word of the Lord explained in ways that I understand. Because I believe we are living in the end times, I was drawn to the book because I follow a lot of the current events that I believe apply to the end times prophesy signs. This book pretty much falls in line with all that I've been taught regarding the subject.
I was surprised the reader had an Irish accent. I loved it. It's also better when the actual author reads the book. That way everything is said in the way he intended.
It's a truth-revealing book that couples with the prophesies found in biblical doctrine. it's important that people in these times understand its message.
I loved the psychic aspects of the book, coupled with the mystery surrounding the death of a little girl whose murdered body was found buried in and old grave with a body still buried beneath her. There are always non-believers and skeptics who say that the psychic must have been part of the murder, since they believe psychics are nonexistent. So naturally, while she is being investigated for her part in the murder, she and her step-brother are working together to try to find the real murderer.
When the man who assaulted her was murdered.
It's nice when the reader is able to add drama to the story by her reading style.
I could not listen that continuously, but it was engrossing and a good read.
It was a fantasy book with realism thrown in to make it more believable.
It ended the way you would expect.
She added drama to the story and she was not hard to pay attention to.
Yes, I could see it as a movie.
I read this book for a Young Adults Literature class I was taking. It was quite enjoyable, but geared for a younger audience. So as long as it is read with that mindset, I would recommend it.
I listened to the book as a school assignment. I actually enjoyed it more than I believed I would. Maya experienced a lot of abuse and mistreatment, but came out stronger on the other side. She never wallowed in self-pity, but moved past her circumstances. It was especially enjoyable that the author performed the audio book, herself. Every line was read the way it was intended.
I have never experienced Maya Angelou prior to this, and I must say, I enjoyed hearing about her life's journey.
I love stories about psychics and what they experience in their "trances." It was good that the protagonist was able to connect to another psychic that understood her dilemmas and questions about her abilities.
When the protagonist experienced the murders of the victims, she actually bled from her own body.
The reading was like sitting in high school and listening to one of your classmates read out loud. She sounded like a young kid and there wasn't much drama or variation in her voice. It kept losing my attention. It was almost like listening to a computer-generated reading.
Heather Graham is a talented writer. She creates believable characters and eerie situations.
It was a little far-fetched that both of the protagonists could see ghosts and didn't know it about each other.
I have not listened to Angela Dawe's performances prior to this, but she did an excellent job.
