  • The Chosen One: A Novel

    Thirteen-year-old Kyra has grown up in an isolated polygamous community without questioning her father's three wives and her 20 brothers and sisters. Or at least without questioning them much - if you don't count her secret visits to the Mobile Library on Wheels to read forbidden books, or her meetings with the boy she hopes to choose for herself instead of having a man chosen for her.

    Kim says: "Riveting Story - Amazing Narration"
    "Surprisingly....great"
    Overall

    I completely enjoyed this selection. I felt empathetic towards the character and it even felt like a 13 year old was telling the story.

    Very well written. Very enjoyable. Hopefully unrealistic.

    I definitely recommend and hopefully I'll find another one as good soon.

    I absolutely loved it. This story was so great that I immediately downloaded The Lady of Milkweed Manor. I'm also reading The Silent Governess. It isn't a waste of your time. I've listened to hundreds of books, by now and if you're in a mood for a great Christian book, this is it.

    Unlock a new level of fear. It is well known among law enforcement personnel that murderers can be categorized on a scale of 25 levels of evil, from the naive opportunists starting out at Level 1 to the organized, premeditated torture-murderers who inhabit Level 25. What almost no one knows is that a new category of killer is in the process of being defined. Only one man belongs to this group. His targets: Anyone. His methods: Unlimited. His alias: Sqweegel. His classification: Level 26.

    Overall

    I really liked this book. I will admit that I enjoy my share of Koontz, Patterson and Coben, however. I was really in the mood for a book that wasn't too, too deep (you know the kind...the ones you put in your living room to make yourself look intelligent) and this definitely fit the bill.

    Everyone is reviewing it as terrible. Listen, the genre is what it is. I loved the narration and I was in the mood for the gore. If you don't like books like that don't read this one. Don't crucify it, though, for not being a crappy romance novel.

    It's good. Obviously he left it open for a sequel. When it comes out, I'll read it.

    Overall

    I listen to audiobooks quite frequently (I am able during work since I have a lonely job), and besides series that I get completely absorbed in, this was the most wonderful book I've listened to in a while. I wish it hadn't ended. I even enjoyed the stories that Eliza wrote greatly. I will be listening to more that the author has written. I highly recommend.
