    "I do not recommend this one"

    I was unable to get through this one. Typically I'm able to finish even when the story is not very good - not this one!

    "Cute, but they don't tell you...."

    I mostly enjoyed this book, but was a little taken aback that it is an "inspirational" book. I wish it would have mentioned that in the description. It pushed a little too much in that direction for my liking. The rest of the story was very cute but some of the situations she got herself into were a little crazy.

    "Great feel good story!"
    Where does A Mile in My Flip-Flops rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top ten!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved the lead character, Gretchen, because she was so witty and easy to identify with.


    Any additional comments?

    I laughed out loud all the way through this book. You don't normally find a lot of humor in Christian/Inspirational fiction so it was a really nice surprise to be chuckling from start to finish. As soon as I finished this book, I hurried to see what other audiobooks were available from this author. I can't wait to read more!!!

    "so so"

    I thought it would be funnier, it wasn't really. It was good enough, a bit entertaining but rather kind of sad and of course you see the happily ever after coming a mile away. That was alright if the rest was a bit more interesting.

    I own a small shop selling custom/costume Jewelry. I love to listen to audio books while I create jewelry. I love all animals and get very upset when they aren't treated well, even in fiction.

    "Great Fun"

    A really fun novel. Written so that we share the experiences of the characters. A fantastic airplane/holiday read. One to listen to over and over again!

    "I thought it was cute"

    Good beach listen...I thought it was cute - although I too was taken aback by the whole Christian angle. I have a real interest in houses and remodeling, though, so I loved that.

    "A mile in my flip flops"

    I wish that this book's Christian angle would have been stated up front. I am not interested in this nonsense, and would not have ordered this had I known it was a Christian novel. On top of that, it is terrible. Just awful. Do not waste your time or money. I will remember not to order anything from Melody Carlson.
