Hmmm...kind of disappointed with this one. I had high hopes really seeing a mother/daughter relationship. Also God was not really present in this one, like her other books. I will continue to read the second/last book just to see how it ends.
What more can you say about this book, that has not already been said?
I did want to punch Scarlett in the throat a few times!! Also the beginning of the book was treacherous. I am surprised I finished it (I think it's my OCD - if I start it I have to, have to, have to finish it).
I read it...let's move on
Moloka'i is a book about history, heartache, strength, love and perseverance. The beauty of Hawai'i was brought to life so colorful and vivid with just mere words. Also, how this ha'ole author embraced the feeling of ohana. Not just your blood family, but people who come into your life that become your ohana. A book that has peaked my curiosity of whether any of my ancestors went to Kalaupapa.
I gave the book 4 stars because the pronunciation of some of the hawaiian words were off. Other than that, a good read. I am so glad I purchased it.
WOW!! What a great book!! The author shows her relationship with each and everyone of her characters through her writing. So many feelings, frustrated, peaceful, angry, betrayed, happy, loved.
I will continue this series.
It was the first time I read a "Christian" romance and I was so engaged with the characters.
How it wasn't a mushy, everything falls into place type of novel. The characters were so well represented that I became vested in their lives while reading this book.
All of them.
Michael - Just to know a man after God's heart. Someone who will do whatever God tells him to do even if it feels like it's ripping his heart to pieces.
What a great story! Such a reminder of how much God loves me. No matter what I do, say or think he is still there with his arms open to me. Wow! 70x7!
I didn't want to read this book because Jeanette was a spoiled rotten little girl. She does not deserve someone so good. But I had to because it's part of a series and I am OCD in doing things in order. I don't agree with some of the reviewers saying Darragh abused her by making her work, she deserved to learn how to be grateful. I am hoping the third book is better.
Maybe, but I'm not a read a book again type of person. There are too many books out there that I haven't read.
Mist, because she is sanely insane. She made me laugh
I have not listened to any of Robert Petkoff's performance, but he is awesome in this book. He brings the book to life. He is distinct in the characters and you can tell the difference who is who.
I laughed out loud literally.
Good book, great narrator!
I loved the story and how everything transpired. I liked that it didn't prolong the obvious ending.
I love her accent and there was a difference between people.
Good start to a trilogy
The Narrator - awesome job.
The story of how Patrick got his name to be nothing...gotta love high school.
Noah is awesome. His voice was perfect for this book. I loved how he switched characters and how their voices changed, not drastic but you hear the difference.
The story is really about growing up and how one kid functioned amongst dysfunction. It makes me want to watch the movie.
Slow start....the book got a little confusing at the beginning. There were many characters to know and I just couldn't keep up with all the names. Especially one person has their name, nickname and their sire name. UGH!!! I almost gave up listening, but being a person who can "NOT" finish a book once I started, kept on listening.
I am soooo glad I did! Once you get to know the characters, you get hooked. If you love this book, you should listen to it. Roy Dotrice is an awesome narrator. He really brings each character to life (and there are a lot of characters).
**I recommend watching the series first to get to know the people.
