Chasing Fireflies | [Charles Martin]

Chasing Fireflies

When paramedics find a malnourished 6-year-old boy near a burning car that holds a dead woman, they wonder who he is - and why he won't talk. Seth, a small-town journalist who was raised by foster parents, is assigned to cover the story and investigate the boy's identity. But will his search unearth long-buried emotions - and answers to his own history?

    "Absolutely Superb"

    A wonderful story by a wonderful story teller. The characters are interesting and well developed, the transitions are smooth and it has a very satisfying ending. I will be looking for more by this author.

    Story
    "Not What I was Expecting"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Anyone who doesn't mind listening to a wondering, disorganized, hard to follow novel filled with pointless rambling and no distinctive plot.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Charles Martin again?

    No


    Would you be willing to try another one of Andrew Peterson’s performances?

    No. He fails to provide each character a distinctive voice and persona, basically everyone sounds the same. His voice inflection is none existent and his monotone drone makes the book very boring to listen to. I could not finish the book.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Chasing Fireflies?

    Tommy. What exactly does she have to do with the alleged plot about finding a young boys story? It might have been more interesting if the focus was more on the boy and his history rather than Chase (Seth???) and Tommy's past and present situation.
