I love really really good suspense...historical fiction... "slice of life"...coming of age books...ok, anything! :)
Love, Grace, Mercy
I fell in love with William Sirls first book and HAD to get this one! His stories are FRESH; nothing "I've heard a story like this before" about it. His stories have a metaphysical feel to it, but it all works out in the end and it's not too weird at all. It's like nothing you've ever read before.
NOT ON YOUR LIFE! His female voices were horrible; they all sounded like they were strung out on drugs which made you have to really "work" at figuring out their true character because they all sounded tired and haggard. The only voice that was ok, was Rips. Andy's voice was ok, but all of his characters besides Rip sounded WAY too old and worn out. John McLain needs to read ONLY male characters or not at all.
I hope they re-record this book with another narrator because it was really interesting and i would listen to it again, IF ONLY there was another narrator.
The way the story stayed so interesting all the way through.
When Andy started hearing from God through the iPod
Loved the final twist at the end. I was hooked from the beginning. Well worth the credit. I only wish this author had more than two books.
