©1992 Frank Peretti; (P)2002 Books in Motion
If you do any research into the books Peretti writes you will have no confusion as to the subject matter. CHRISTIAN author.
Personally I find it a very refreshing book and enjoyed it throughly. I found it hard to stop listening when I arrived at my destination. I wish all the Peretti books were unabridged.
Prophet had a great premise and a good start, but I wasn't real happy about the ending. I thought the themes it addressed were great: abortion, political corruption, and the influence of the media. But the excitement that I usually get from a Peretti story wasn't there for me. I would say his best are probably This Present Darkness, Peircing the Darkness, and Monster.
I really appreciated the aspect of this story because it crosses all lines. I could see the charters clearly and had several people in my life that i could see doing the very same things, also it was real and funny. People are funny and we all get caught up in stuff and I laughed several times. Another fine book by one of my favorite authors!!
As always Frank Peretti delivered a very engaging novel. I lost momentum with the character at times when he started to experience prophetic visions but the overall concept was very good. Also I would like to have known the results of the work that was done by all those striving to bring about truth and justice to the situation at hand.
I would sum this up with the phrase, "Amazing Story: Narrator?"
Frank Peretti captured the struggle of the characters life wondrously.
The narrator placed far too much emphasis on acting out different characters voices, and selected a hill-billy voice for the prophet, which was not how I would have imagined him.
This is a great story and is worth listening to despite the weaknesses of the narrator.
Struggled to get through the first few chapters as I've never read a book that narrates the visual/prop cues like you would see in a full movie script. (Example, 'Camera zooms in on John.') But sfter I got used to that and got through a slow start, I really enjoyed it. About half way through I could kind of see where it might go and then I couldn't put it down. I was even sort of "nervous" during one of the climactic scenes as I listened anxiously and wondered what might transpire for the characters.
Definitely worth a read or listen. Frank Peretti fans and new readers alike will not be disappointed!
