    "love it!"

    Read all three books now, (listened to this one) and each one got more interesting. A bit over the top and unbelievable but wholesome and enjoyable!

    "Another great from Ray Blackston"

    The third in the series, I couldn't wait to listen to Lost in Rooville. I wasn't disappointed! The characters are so vivid I feel like I know them. There couldn't be a better choice for narrater. Andrew Peterson has read all three and he does and awesome job.

    "Warning - this is a book for"

    I didn't realise this was a "Young Christians" book, and almost didn't finish it. I guess I'm glad I did ... but I can't recommend it to the general reading public.

    "Fun and enjoyable"
    If you could sum up Lost in Rooville in three words, what would they be?

    This book and Blackston's others are all categorized as Religious Fiction. The major problem is that the Christian stuff is jumbled in with the rest along with gay and lesbian. This is not a slow listen and it will not leave you disinterested, I wanted more but only 4 of Blackston's 5 books are available (that was a joke.) It's hard finding non Christian Romance on Audible, and I like to come to Blackston's stuff then jump to similar authors.

    "Cheap After School Christian TV Special"

    I only made it halfway through this book before I had to stop reading the nonsense.

    It reminded me of those after school tv specials they use to have. Simple stories with simple morals attached.
