Prophet | [R.J. Larson]

Prophet

"Close your eyes, Ela of Parne. Close your eyes and you will see." Ela Roeh of Parne doesn't understand why her beloved Creator, the Infinite, wants her to become His prophet. She’s undignified, bad tempered, and only 17 - not to mention that no prophet of Parne has ever been a girl. Worst of all, as the elders often warn, if she agrees to become the Infinite's prophet, Ela knows she will die young. "Istgard has turned their back on Me. See the evil they do."

Publisher's Summary

"Close your eyes, Ela of Parne. Close your eyes and you will see." Ela Roeh of Parne doesn't understand why her beloved Creator, the Infinite, wants her to become His prophet. She’s undignified, bad tempered, and only 17 - not to mention that no prophet of Parne has ever been a girl. Worst of all, as the elders often warn, if she agrees to become the Infinite's prophet, Ela knows she will die young. "Istgard has turned their back on Me. See the evil they do." Yet after experiencing His presence, she can't imagine living without Him. Determined to follow the Infinite's voice, Ela accepts the sacred vinewood branch and is sent to bring the Infinite’s word to a nation torn apart by war. Here she meets Kien, a young Traceland ambassador determined to bring his own justice for his oppressed people. As they form an unlikely partnership, Ela must surrender to her destiny... and determine how to balance the leading of her heart with the leading of the Infinite. "Will you accept the branch and speak My will? Will you be My prophet?"

    "Prophet (R. J. Larson)"

    This was an excellent read! Written as if it were talking about something happening today without any religious stigmas. I enjoyed it very much.

    "lt is the bible with new faces"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Prophet to be better than the print version?

    Yes, but then again I am more audiobook than written book. You can multitask with audio.


    What other book might you compare Prophet to and why?

    The bible. So far this series it's like taking Isaiah, Jonah, Jeremiah, Job, and King David and slamming them all together.


    Which character – as performed by Brooke Heldman – was your favorite?

    Kennen


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

    God. Who wouldnt want to dine with their creator?

    I could not get past the way it was read

    I stopped at the creature chasing her in Chapter 2

    "Pleasant surprise bc I considered previous reviews on performer prior to purchasing."

    What a lively depiction of our Father's heart and the burdens (good/bad) carried by those called by Him.

    Such a timely read, on a personal level.

    I was totally engrossed in the story so the performance wasn't a hindrance. Actually, I was only vaguely aware of it since I'd read other reader's reviews. My recommendation: buy the book. It will speak to your heart if you enjoy Christian fiction - I quickly identified and cared for the characters so I heard the story more than the performer. I suppose I got lost in the wonderfully woven plot.

    "Absolutely FABULOUS !!!!!"

    Wow !!!!!! Just when I though I had read all fantastic series I stumbled upon R.J. Larson. What a stupendous author. My hats are off to you lady :-). I only wish there were more great writers like you. As our family has operated in a prophetic ministry for 25 years, it is very encouraging to read these books, although fiction, so gracefully written. Who knew one could be encouraged by fiction series !!! So proud of your work. Now I am on to reading Judge and then King. I'm so excited I can't wait. An upcoming surgery leads me to a week of down time to indulge in listening to your next audio book. Thank you for the great book. But PLEASE ...... Don't stop there !!!!!!!

    "Great story / horrible narrator"
    What would have made Prophet better?

    The narator does not know what set volume to go with. She whispers one minute and yells the next.

    Story
    "I thought the reader did a good job!"
    What did you love best about Prophet?

    Explores what it would be like to represent God ("The Infinite") at a level where you were given glimpses of the immediate future in order to represent God in a time of judgment and change.


    What other book might you compare Prophet to and why?

    The Exodus in the Bible where God speaks to Moses, along with the prophetess Huldah, a bit of Deborah, and a bit of Isaiah thrown in just for good measure.

    But, throw into the mix just a little bit of normal teenage girl who has human emotions and feelings, humor, and depression. A bit like Katness from the Hunger Games.


    What does Brooke Heldman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Here's the rub. She expresses A LOT of emotion! If you don't like this, you will be put off a bit. But I certainly felt that her exclamations of emotion generally fit the character well. She was passionate for the reading! Bravo! My children also really like her voice. We all think she struggles a bit with some of the darker male characters (though we think she does well with the lighter ones).


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It reminded me that God is interested in the course of history and he does see all. I am not one to cry, but I did empathize very much and cared about the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    I wanted to dispel some of the negative reviews. I and my children have enjoyed this book and will go on in the series.

    What disappointed you about Prophet?

    Like many other reviewers, the reader is awful ...whiny, simpering and over the top...I couldn't get through chapter 1 of this story...who knows if the story is good!

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes! Love story, action, Spiritual relationship. I really enjoyed this story!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Love interest of the Prophet and the new king. I love men with strong moral character, passion and wisdom.


    What aspect of Brooke Heldman’s performance would you have changed?

    I did not care for the voice she chose for the Prophet.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Not sure. But I would like to see it become a movie. The whole Trilogy.


    Any additional comments?

    I love stories set in this era of history. The Spiritual content makes it even better!

    "HORRIBLE NARRATOR"
    What was most disappointing about R.J. Larson’s story?

    The narrator.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Brooke Heldman?

    Rebecca Soler


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Confusion. I didn't know what was going on because the narrator made everyone's voice so whiny and annoying.


    Any additional comments?

    I couldn't even concentrate on the book because I couldn't get past the narrator making everyone's voice sound so whiny. The first thing I thought was "What the heck is that?" I couldn't get past Chapter 2.
