    "I also thought it was predictable..."

    It's an ok book but it never answered the question about Isaiah's life and death experience, it didn't change him only made him worse. I also don't condone this book essentially saying you can do bad things, not repent and still end up in heaven? I grudgingly recommend this audiobook.

    "Awesome"

    This book was extremely good!!!!!!! I could barely work while trying to listen to this book. I would have loved for it to last a little longer, but it's a must read.

    "Great listen"
    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes! I wanted to know what was going to happen next. It was a shocker.

    "Suspenseful"

    This audio book is worth the purchase. The premise of the book is basic, but there are a few surprises which will keep the listener on edge. I found it enjoyable, and the author was a good writer. The narrator did a good job flowing between characters.

    "predictable"

    I knew the ending after listening to about a third of the book. I thought the characters were weak, as was the plot. But I kept listening because I just knew there had to be more, but there wasn't.

    "Rodata"

    This book was a little slow in the very beginning, but it picked up some towards the end. The lack of different characters reading made it difficult to keep listening to sometimes. The fact that the reader tries to change his voice for each character, became a little boring. Maybe reading this book for your self would have been better than having it read in audible. But overall it was a good book.
