    Story
    "Great Book!"
    What did you love best about The Shack?

    The unusual portrayal of God being both Father and Mother


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Shack?

    There were so many but when the Holy Spirit and Mac were in the garden and how the garden with all the beauty amongst the weeds was actually Mac's life! Also when Mac was in the cave judging God.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I did not care for his voice or his lack of emphasis in his voice. Wish it was narrated by Max Mc'Clean


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

    Jesus! Papa! Sarayu! All are one so them as one

    "Wonderful insight into the relationship that God desires to have with us all!"

    The author does a wonderful job of explaining the relationship that the Trinity has and the desire that God has for a relationship with us.

    Story
    "Even better the second time around"
    Where does The Shack rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Very high at the top. This was a great read/listen.


    Which character – as performed by Roger Mueller – was your favorite?

    Hmmm... I loved them all actually each offered something different and needed.


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

    Didn't make me laugh or cry but made me reflect and become more insightful along the way.


    Any additional comments?

    I read this book many years ago and it took me forever to get through because it was slow to start but so glad I decided to give it another go with audiobook. I was able to stick with it and I recommend this for anyone struggling to find an explanation of the Trinity and how you can trust again after pain.

    "Changed me to my core"

    I can't even begin to put into words what this book has done for my heart, my mind, and my soul. This book brought me to God. This book opened my eyes and heart. This book helped me to finally break my chains and be a soul of God. This book ultimately saved me life.

    "Healing all the guilt and shame..."

    I lived 40+ years with Lutheran guilt that clouded my relation with God. Amazing how one fable can crack that mile thick layer of shame and guilt!!

    "Restoring!"

    I didn't know what to expect because I didn't even know the story line. I was looking for a book to listen to for a long drive. This one jumped out at me and yelled 'Read Me'! So, I did. What a wonderful book! You won't be disappointed. This is the first review I have written. Don't normally do. Been a listener for 2 yrs and never written one until now!

    "A story that keeps you interested"
    What made the experience of listening to The Shack the most enjoyable?

    I enjoyed the narrator. I enjoyed the story. It made me cry one minute and smile the next.


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

    I wouldn't say it kept me in the edge of my seat, but it was a joy to listen to.


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

    Roger Mueleer is good at bringing the characters to life.


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

    Overcoming sorrow through faith

    "Great book!"

    At times it was heart wrenching for both the hard parts as a parent and as a child of God. Love the unexpected manifestations of God.

    The reader did an excellent job conveying the story.

    "Not feeling it and not as described"

    The description is deceiving and the ratings are too - I don't see why this book has such high ratings - it's a view on god, Jesus, and Holy Spirit but not mine - calling God poppa who shows hisself as a black woman - uuummm no - it rambles and makes little sense- almost like a schizophrenic writing down their crazy musings
