This book wasn't what I expected it would be but I enjoyed it none the less. I like the writings of CS Lewis in the "Problem of Pain, and that's what this author's style of writing reminded me of. Very intellectual and very enlightening. The narrator did a great job as well... Very enjoyable to listen to.
It was hard to hold my interest at first until a few chapters in. The narrator seemed to read quite slow so I sped it up a notch and that made a big difference. I would have liked for the narrator to use different voices for the characters or at least for the main characters but overall he was pleasant to listen to. Anyway once I got past the first few chapters I was hooked and couldn't put it down. Well worth my time!
This story was very interesting and there were so many layers to it from his childhood through his military service and his life afterwards. I'm so glad I purchased this audiobook.. The narrator made it even better!
This was a fascinating read. The story kept my full attention the whole way through and I thoroughly enjoyed the narrators performance.
I absolutely love how this author writes. I've always loved the stories out of the old testament but Lynn Austin's skill of writing made the events and the characters come to life. It also caused me dig into my bible and reread these wonderful accounts, which I hadn't done in a few years. The story line is fascinating and I was enthralled by the narrator as well. (Suzanne Toren does an amazing job!) If I could give more than a 5 star rating, I would. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series!
One of the most memorable moments had to be when his brother was being sacrificed. The story is so well written and performed, I could literally feel the heat of the fire on my face as it was being described in such detail. I have many other memorable moments, but that one really stood out.
Yes, "Return to Me: The Restoration Chronicles". I loved that one as well and would highly recommend it to anyone. Seriously worth using a credit for. I'm hooked on these books now. I'm going to hate it when I've read them all! (Please write more!)
I cried when the King discovered his grandfather was still alive.
I'm so glad I downloaded this book. "Return to Me" and "Gods & Kings" were both very hard to put down. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series!
This entire series of books is amazing. I couldn't stop listening to any of them! The way the author unfolds the story lines and intertwines the characters throughout each book is brilliant. I especially loved the way she ends each story, not leaving any loose ends. The endings are always full of surprises & tearfully joyful. Simply breathtaking stories. I hated the series to end. The narrator, Christina Moore, does an awesome job giving each character his or her own voice. She really makes the stories come to life. I wish she narrated every book by this author.
Kitty finally standing up to Missy. I jumped for joy at her bravery.
This whole series is breathtaking. I wish there were 10 more books in this series!
Freedom from slavery.
Please write more books in this series and use the same narrator!
By far, the best story I have ever heard. I couldn't stop listening and I cried through out the whole last chapter. The ending was more that I could have imagined. I especially loved the narrator. I wish he narrated more of Mildred Taylor's books. (Lynne Thigpen and Ruben Santiago-Hudson are both awesome narrators!) Thank you both, and Mildred Taylor, for such a pleasurable book to listen to!
I loved the whole book...but the ending was my favorite.
Without giving it away, I loved the surprise at the end, when the wagon stopped and Caroline & Nathon thought it was just to rest for the night. (I don't want to give away the best part to anyone reading this that hasn't had a chance to read or listen to the book)
Persistence and honesty always triumph over wickedness and greed...so never give up on your dreams...
These stories by Mildred Taylor are priceless. My daughter, a 6th grader, introduced me to 'Roll of Thunder, here my cry', when they were reading it in language arts class this year. She talked about it every day until I finally had to read it myself. Now I can't get enough of these wonderful stories by Mildred Taylor. Everyone should read these stories. They're wonderful (sad & happy) stories of our past that should never be forgotten.
