    "Disappointing"
    What disappointed you about Crispens Point?

    The story itself was flat and an uninteresting.


    Would you ever listen to anything by JoHannah Reardon again?

    I will probably not choose this author again.


    What didn’t you like about Crystal Sershen’s performance?

    The narration can be compared to scratching a chalk board; to many variances in pitch. Almost sing song.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I may recommend this book to a younger generation. I needed more depth and mystery.

    "A Really Enjoyable Story"
    Where does Crispens Point rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would rank it highly. It is a book I would re-listen to.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I felt like the story took place in a culture that I understand. It is not the super-charged naughty romance stories that seem to be popular. This is the sort of story that could have happened to someone I know. On another note, its also the sort of story I could play for our whole family to listen to without feeling like it was silly like so many Christian romance stories seem to be these days.


    Did Crystal Sershen do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I was not as impressed with this narrator as I was with the person who read for the second book. This reader was slightly sing-songy at times. However, as I thought about it by giving each book a different narrator perhaps the thought was to give each book its own voice.


    If you could take any character from Crispens Point out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Charlotte. I feel that she and I could have been friends if I knew her in real life.


    Any additional comments?

    I listened to the 2nd book before listening to this, the first book in a series. First off, I can say that though they have characters in common, I think they each stand alone rather well. From the very beginning of the book, I liked and understood the Character of Charlotte. I also liked the secondary characters, I thought they were written with real flaws and brought humor without being ridiculous in their descriptions, words and/or actions. Thinking back to myself as a single woman (almost 10 years ago) in a Christian environment, I remember the struggle in my attraction to a Young man. In such a culture, you feel as though everyone is not only watching you, but judging you as well. The way the Author wrote of this struggle felt very real to me. I think that perhaps if you do not live in a Christian culture you might not understand that bit in the book. I have to say that I would recommend not only this book, but this author has very much pleased me. I definitely believe that this book has the quality in it that would have me re-reading or in this case re-listening to it all over again!

    "What a GREAT Story!!"
    Where does Crispens Point rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This ranks right up there with the best. I enjoy all kinds of books, but sweet ones like Crispens Point are the most refreshing. It is reassuring to be reminded their are good people out there living good lives.


    Any additional comments?

    I bought the kindle version and the audio version. My wife and I listened to it all the way from Denver to Aberdeen.
    We both loved every minute of it!!
