It was like reading the diary of a junior high or highschooler, trying to figure out her adolescent years. Way too emotional in her dilemmas, even though it presents biblical values in decision making. "Overworked", as described by another reviewer. Not for me either.
I enjoyed the "Tuesday morning" series. I won't finish this book or the series.
One of the narrators had a very annoying and childlike voice and intonation - usually speaking for Bailey. This probably added to me impatience with the story line.
Ashley's story line was much more interesting and I don't know how it turns out unless I finish the book. It would be easy to recommend this to my junior high niece.
Absolutely! This follows the actual events around the new movie, Argo, which I've not seen yet. The reader's accents were amazing and the pace kept the story moving. My husband and I didn't want to stop driving while listening on a long trip. He weaves the historical events while developing the characters, making them very believable with a Christian perspective.
It is classified as historical fiction, but it reminds me of listening to No Easy Day, minus the colorful language.
The author has a great understanding of the the Middle East, Islam and Christianity, and the religious and political influences in the cultures, revealing the challenges that apply to current events.
