    "A Very Good Listen"

    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.

    "Good but not Peretti's best"

    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.

    "Awesome :)"

    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!!

    "Prophet"

    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.

    "An Amazing Story: Narrator Lacking"
    If you could sum up Prophet in three words, what would they be?

    I would sum this up with the phrase, "Amazing Story: Narrator?"


    What did you like best about this story?

    Frank Peretti captured the struggle of the characters life wondrously.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great story and is worth listening to despite the weaknesses of the narrator.

    "Great Books"
    Would you listen to Prophet again? Why?

    Yes. As With all good books you have to read them more than once.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Will maybe not quit on edge of my seat, but close to it. wanted to know what was going to happen next.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The end. but I always lesson from the beginning.


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

    That would be hard to say, being as they were all good.

    "Just So-So"

    Somewhat entertaining, but disappointing. Some years ago I read This Present Darkness, and my recollection is that it was much better. The characters and the plot seem weekly developed. As if the author didn't quite make the full effort.

    "Misleading"

    If you're into a marathon abortion debate, this is your book. Who knew? Adding to the discomfort the topic creates when listening, the narration is one of the poorest I've endured. I wish there had been a more accurate description of the plot in the publisher's summary, which upon reading, the book seemed really interesting. But sadly, the summary is not remotely close to what the book is all about.
