Sam and Laura Job have the perfect life. They have a wonderful marriage. Beautiful children. Two great careers. They have a beautiful house in the suburbs. The Jobs are bestowed with all the blessings modern life has to offer. Their life was idyllic until a moment of tragedy changed everything for them, forever. As their family tries to rebuild after this life-altering calamity, they struggle to define their relationships with themselves, their relationships with each other, and their relationship with God. The Suffering of Innocents looks at the age old question posed in the Old Testament's Book of Job, "Why do innocents suffer?"

A family has it all careers, home, children and lots of love. The unthinkable happens and lives change. A sad story about surviving and finding a "New Normal."
We even get a visit from an unexpected person.
The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed.
Pros: good story-line
Cons: Questionable editing and dull narration.
I enjoy a good story, especially if it has a Christian context. That is the case with this book. There is endless stories that could be written about the struggles of good people and how they can relate to the book of Job. This book does just that with a couple with three children.
I am an optimistic person and look for the best in people and in books, but there were two things that I had a difficult time getting over while listening to this audio book and I think they kind of go hand in hand. First, I found the narration very dull and almost robotic. While the narrator has a nice speaking voice and is easy to understand; he is almost too easy to understand. When we read, we don't read every word; just like when we listen, we don't hear every word that is being said. The narrator over enunciates each word, so for me, it didn't flow at all.
I also struggled with the editing of the story. Unnecessary redundancy is something that taught early and often in writing classes, but seems to be excessive in this book. An example that comes to mind is; "... he needed to get the boys before 5:00 PM. When Sam pulled up in front of the Sunshine Day care, it was about 5 minutes before 5:00 PM." To me, that just doesn't sound natural. Again, this could be associated with the narrators over enunciation.
Even with those two detractors, this is a book story and is only about an hour and a half.

First off I hate to leave a bad review on a free book but this book was all around bad!!! The narration was horrible. The story I guess was ok, this is the first christian religious book I've have ever listen to that used the F word. Only once but it was there. What made it so bad was the narration a good narrator makes or breaks a book. This audiobook was provided by the author at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of audiobook blast
