    "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

    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

    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.

    "I love this book"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Shack to be better than the print version?

    Yes because you get more than just the book you get an hour listening to different people talking to the other


    What other book might you compare The Shack to and why?

    Cross roads because it was written by the same author


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

    I like all of them none of them are not my favorite


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The thing that made me cry was when missy died and when they discovered Missy's body


    Any additional comments?

    This is an awesome book. I learned a lot.

    "Fantastic"

    I heard so many negative things about this book in the past but I'm so glad I read this book. It opened up Gods heart for me. I now see the relationship He's calling me into on such a deeper level. I recommend this book to everyone I talk to! Get this book!

    Story
    "Good story with some reservations "

    Good story and very good regarding the emotional problem of evil and how the answer to suffering lies in relationship with God.

    However this is not a book on systematic theology. I disagreed with the authors perspective on institutions as destroyers of relationship. Instead I see them as systems that can protect relationships, but are empty without them. Much like a cup of water is undrinkable without a cup, yet a cup without water is empty and useless. In my analogy the cup is like the institutions and the water is relationship

    "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
    "Starts out grim and turns into something beautiful"
    Would you listen to The Shack again? Why?

    I will listen to it again and again. It is labeled as "fiction" but I believe that the author or someone the author knows actually had an experience as spiritual and magical as told in this book. The deep messages can only be told by someone who lived it. Beautiful just beautiful!


    What other book might you compare The Shack to and why?

    God is for real because it is told from the perspective of a witness. I believe this story comes from a witness as well.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    So many at the shack were my favorite. That is when the story blossoms.


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

    So many times I got chills, overwhelming joy and tears of both happiness and enlightenment.


    Any additional comments?

    Definitely worth the read!
