"Strong themes of Christian love and faith are softly narrated by Rob Lamont, who uses his varied skills to portray the mystery of life." (Audiofile)
This one kept me on the edge and wanting to continue to listen. It has a great Christian theme with messages of redemption, hope and healing and real examples of how sin leads to sin. Fantastic book!
For listening while on a long drive, this was very good and mostly held our listening attention. The only downer was the excessive number of times Reyna (Sp?) repeated the sentiment that 'I'm sure he'd want to die" or such like. Having listened to both parts, I'd like a Part 3 that deals with the aftermath of the climactic events. Robert is such a good writer and having read the book there is too much left out, which is sadly true of his other audio books. Quite why there's a time limit placed on an audio book I really don't know - it's not like there's a constraint on file sizes these days. Would that Audible would reconsider their abridging policy and just read the entirety of Robert's excellent books so we can enjoy them to the full. Recommend getting the book so you can fill in the obvious gaps.
I was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed the storyline in this book. My expectations aren't that high for Christian novels, so I found this to be refreshing. There was some intrigue. The big downside was that it just ended...it felt like the story wasn't complete.
Unique approach to the theme and fascinating introduction of really marvelous concepts worthy of further reflection. So glad to have discovered this author and thankful to have a great narrator to go with. Wish these were not abridged!!!
I think I will follow the series it has strong characters and keeps your interest
I travel on the road a lot so I get to listen to good portions at a time
The narration was good took a little to get into but now I enjoy it
That's what I kept thinking as I listened to this book. I read the whole series hoping it would get better. It dragged on in its narrative and never lingered in my mind like others I've read. The characters were poorly developed and very difficult to connect to. I kept hoping someone would review this too, but I'm the first. I hesitated writing a review, but I want to save you from even considering Whitlow's Santee Series!
