    "I loved this book!!!"

    I really enjoyed this book. I think so many times we are looking for our own soulmates instead of letting God Write our love Story. I can not wait until they make this into a movie next year. This book was very funny and entertaining.

    "Funny"

    I loved this book. It was funny. There were some theological issues I didn't agree with but all in all I recommend this book. It made me laugh out loud and shed a few tears. Looking for other books by this writer.

    "GREAT STORY"

    This is by far one of the best books ever!!! Every single person who wishes to marry should read or listen to this book. This book really teaches you to wait on God.

    "A tad bit misleading..."

    The sample was hilarious! There were other laugh-out-loud moments, but the sample made me think the whole thing was going to be equally funny. The concept is interesting. Overall, I'd recommend saving the credit and getting a library copy.

    "Very enjoyable."

    I enjoyed the story and the writing. It was a good get-away, rather than one of those stories that make you wonder when the wandering recitation will end.

    "Don't bother"

    I put up with this book until the 4th chapter when God showed up in the form of a man. I just couldn't stomach this supernatural excuse for a tale. I would have given it minus 4 stars but it wasn't an option.
