Charles Martin is a a gifted writer, however his stories are sometimes hard to take, much like life, so if you listen to books to escape the difficulties of life, well, be aware. My favorite so far is Chasing Fireflies. This is a really good read but it makes you look at raw pain. I love the interaction between these true friends. It makes you aware of the impact we have on one another. Charles Martin's books feed us in a way I cannot define. It is like a light he shelters and his stories stir that in me.
This story held me every minute right with the authors words and the very excellent narration. I liked the different kinds of love and caring that small community had
I didn't dislike any part of the story except the coon hunt, which was a little too real and the thought of snuggling pink... Yuck. But I will search out every book Charles Martin has written because" his words touch my soul.
This is one of my favorite books by Charles Martin. I've listened to it probably 5 times. The writing is excellent, the story compelling, and the humor is so enjoyable. It has inspired me as a writer.
Feels so good!
I think mentioning what is the most memorable moment to someone reading this review would ruin the story. Each person had to experience it for themselves.
The emotion that is brought to life by the reader makes the story all the more compelling.
This book made me cry with compassion for the main character.
This is a must listen book.
