It took a minute for me to realize why I couldn't get into this book...it was primarily the "elderly" narrator (there were two: one read in a younger voice-sometimes too young for the character; while the other read for the older women characters in a very old, matronly voice). Her voice didn't help the book at all. It kind of grated on my nerves and I wasn't sure why she felt characterizing 40-50-60 year old women as if they were 100! Her pitch and tone when changing characters was confusing. Also, I wish the author hadn't waited so long to flesh out the characters. I may listen to another book, but I will steer clear of the reader.
My only issue: use African American narrators for more realism, so everyone doesn't sound alike.
Although it started out slow, overall, a good book, and the narrator made it even better.
This is the first time I've listened to this author; it won't be the last!
I absolutely love everything she writes, although in this series, I think I may have missed the very beginning ..
or it may be I've listened to so many books I've lost my way. I would have liked to have read when Bailey and Cody first met.
Another story that teaches the heart and touches the soul. Each time she writes, her books serve as a deep learning lesson. I love Karen Kingsbury.
I love every word Karen Kingsbury writes. Since I began listening to her, I've listened to no one else.
Her books move my heart. I love every word and sentiment because GOD is there in every line.
I love everything this man writes. I'm hoping and praying he's got more books either written or in the works. If you haven't heard THE SHACK, go get it. This book is on the same lines as THE SHACK, but this one is a little lighter. Caution -- you have to be a true believer in what can possibly happen when God gets involved, or you won't get the story or like this book! This one is a true KEEPER!!
I love Robert Whitlow's books. I hope he's writing more, because in a minute, I'm not going to have anymore of his to listen to; I'm just praying there's another author who writes along the same lines. Mr. Whitlow's books are more than a story, they are a lesson in life and the goodness and grace of God.
Robert Whitlow's writings are too important from a Christian standpoint to be tainted by a poor narrator. I liked the story, loved the message, just didn't care for the narrator. I hope the rest of his books (although I've listened to just about all of them) don't have the same story teller.
