This audio book is good clean humor. There are parts that are extremely funny. I did not get the level of chuckles that I expected though. Perhaps the material was directed toward someone with similar interest as the author.
The story in this read was very interesting. The characters were plausible and the outline of the story was fresh and not trodden down a beaten path. I gave this book 4 stars because of the profanity sprinkled throughout the read. At first it was only mildly present, it was the normal language preference for one of the characters. Toward the end the use of profanity grew for this character so that it became annoying to me. Apart from that it could have been a 5 star read for me.
This read is well worth the price or credit! I enjoy nonfiction which is factual and moving at a pace to keep my interest. This exceeded my expectations. All of the horrific truth about the tragedy of the Titanic was told in a very humane narrative, but also how other factors interceded with the tragic event which left me stunned. There were times when I wanted to weep.
For me, this would have been a 5 star read, but for the profanity sprinkled throughout. I give the author credit that he managed to avoid the F_____ word. Other than that it was a great book. The characters were interesting and the plot moving to the very end.
Undoubtedly this is a very good author, however this book had a little too much profanity for me.
This book is absolutely chilling!! Simply because the possibilities are too close to the truth.
Excellent! This book was a surprise to me. I discovered it on the public library website and found that Audible had the audiobook. There were volatile situations which were handled with the utmost tact, giving all the descriptive evidence of the situation without gravitating toward lasciviousness or profanity. The ending was superb (in my opinion). This book is well worth the credit.
This is a great in-depth study. I intend to listen to it again and again. It's like reading the Bible and having the Holy Spirit reveal a truth to you at a specific time.
I read a review about this book before I purchased it that said "Don't give up on this book". That's exactly how I feel. I am usually turned off immediately by profanity. There was one character in the beginning of the novel who was fluent in it. There was also the telling of the inhumane treatment that this character dealt out to a small boy. (Here I have to give the author a 5 star because she was not graphic or indecent in any way.) Nevertheless the subject itself made me want to retreat. But I continued to read and a beautiful story unfolded. As author and narrator Ms. VanLiere did an excellent job.
This book was beyond the normal realm of life, amazing, and true to the character of God. It is Christian fiction (that is a novel with fictional characters), at it's best. I don't think we as Christians have touched the possibilities that God offers in this life probably because we are too afraid of going off the deep end into some kind of circus performing stance. As for me I have to remember that God is in control, He is no respector of persons, and He is unlimited and all powerful. I enjoyed every page of this book!
This is an excellent book full of real life in the African terrain. Drama so intense sometimes that it could have been a fiction page turner. There were certain parts of the African life that I found unpalatable culturally and also from a Christian perspective but references to these were minute. Anyone can tell that this man loved animals and what he learned from them is masterfully portrayed in this book.
