I love Maguire, but I really wish he had been the reader on this book, like he was for book two.
I was greatly looking forward to the last of the Wicked series, and the promise of loose ends being tied up. Yes, many loose ends find closure, but the ending left me a bit.... unfulfilled. No spoliers here. However the ending and some of the events leading up to it just felt empty. Book one, the ending being a bit ambiguous I felt added to the story. Book two felt the same. Book Three had the promise of more to come. However with book four stumbling back into an open ending, it was just frustrating. I do have a suspicion that if Maguire had been the narrartor as he had been on book two, perhaps there might have been a bit less... empty. Of course though that's speculation. Still a good read. However I'll be honest that I am disappointed.
I really like Patrick Wanis and I feel this audio has very good information with moving past things once a relationship closes. However the one thing I do not like about this is the woman doing the interview. "Honeybee." She seems hung up on the thought of someone not being "Worthy of you." Every time Wanis tries to direct her away from that line of thinking, she clings to it with such dedication he eventually just gives up. I feel the same info just with Wanis giving it would be much more benifical without the distracting side comments from "Honeybee."
I have a couple versions of "The Game of Life." Frankly the audio is read so fast it's almost difficult to absorb and starts to grate on the nerves after awhile. I'd look at getting the abridged CD or perhaps looking for a volunteer version online, vs. spending the $3 here.
