Another great Christian fiction. The author explores new technology, and scary future possibilities. Very intriguing. Couldn't put it down. Religion was not the focus, just a reality in the character's lives. Well done. Wish it could have been longer.
What happens when we try to use technology to share the experience of someone who dies and "crosses over"? This aspect involves some interesting imagery, but the story is really more of a suspense about uncovering a scandal involving killing people and using their body parts in transplants. Also involved and addressed heavily are issues of love, truth, and forgiveness. All in all, it is a pretty good book...
this book is good, especially with the other three. They almost have to be read or listened to in order to get the full meaning of each book. But very good, this book made me want to hurry to the next book, so I wouldn't miss anything.
Way too much preachiness. The characters had to repeat almost every statement...sometimes with slight stutters. That little artifice grew old fast. The Hero came across as "namby-pamby" rather than sensitive and loving. I really felt kind of sorry for his son. Poor whiney kid needed his dad and was consistently ignored throughout. He'll probably grow up to be a seriel killer. Gita was incredibly naive and unbelievable. The author ineptly diguised the sermons that flowed unending from her lips as "truth". The book could have been very interesting had the author not kept continuously beating me about the head and shoulders with the metaphoric religious angle iron. Overall a ho-hum listen.
I found the description very misleading, as this turned out to be not much more than a Christian parable. Once I looked at his other books, I probably could have guessed that, though. Aside from flatly drawn characters that border on genuinely stupid, he also has a bit of a pronoun problem: "He walked up to a door. He wiped his face and opened it." If you want a "Ain't God great?" story, go ahead and listen, but "gut-wrenching"? Not so much.
