    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

    "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.

    "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

    "A great experience but tough in the beginning"

    This is a pretty amazing book that chronicles a mans experience with God. It helps to tear down preconceived notions of God and really get to the root of how we should see God. The first third of the book is a little hard to get through though. Not because its bad bit because it really tugs at your heart strings

    "Difficult story"

    Not sure how to sum up this book. Hard to follow and very sad. My thoughts kept going back to the little girl.

    Story
    "This book will change your perspective about GOD."
    What did you love best about The Shack?

    The way that I was written draws you in from the very beginning. The fact that it was originally was written for his children only, to me it's a great honor to be able to read something that he only wrote for them to begin with.


    What did you like best about this story?

    For me I truly felt like I was there in the shack with papa the whole time and it was amazing.


    Have you listened to any of Roger Mueller’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I have not listen to any other of his performances.


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

    Papa, because I just want to be in the presence of God even more than I already am.
