I loved this book. Despite the predictability of the plot line, it was very well written and I found myself not wanting to stop listening, so I read it in 2 sittings.
It does have some twists and turns throughout the story, allowing the reader to glimpse into more than just the main character's lives.
For those who want a story they can enjoy on a lazy weekend or something to entertain for a long drive, this is perfect. However it does have some strong christian themes and is very neatly wrapped up by the end of the story, so it wont be everybody's cup-of-tea.
It is such a pity that this narrator was reading the book. All her characters had the same tone and deliberate speech pattern. I felt like i was listening to a children's book the way she was reading all the voices. It gave the story a stilted, fake feel, when I am sure the author would have wanted the book read at a natural pace.
The story itself would have been a more enjoyable experience if a different narrator read the book. Very disappointed.
I often struggle with narration for audiobooks, but the narrator on this book really complemented the story, not detracting from the content at all.
The author's were not afraid to tackle the tough issues of fatherhood, and the responsibilities fathers face. It is definetly a thought-provoking read. I am hoping to see the movie created by the author's also. I recoomend it!!
The narrator delivers little passion and commitment to different character voices. The story is very slow and boring with little to entertain the audience. I literally fell asleep listeing to it. Save your money.
