    "Good listen!"

    Good clean Amish story in the typical Beverly Lewis tradition, with a good plot. I enjoyed the narrator too. She's pleasant to listen to. I enjoyed this book!

    Story
    "Nothing Much Happens."
    Would you try another book from Beverly Lewis and/or Christina Moore?

    I've listened to several of Beverly Lewis' books and I will again. I found Christina Moore's voice a little annoying. After a bit I got used to it, but if I stopped listening for a while and then came back, I would have to get used to it all over again.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Beverly Lewis again?

    Did I not just answer this question?


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    There were times where she would take long breaks. One time I actually checked my Ipod to see if it had died! I'm not sure that's her fault though. That probably falls on the producer.


    Do you think The Thorn needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    yes. It was pretty much a lot of lead up to the very last chapter. Even though nothing much happened, I learned so much about the characters that now I have to find out how they end up.

    Story
    "Boring!!!!"
    What disappointed you about The Thorn?

    I was very disappointed!!! This book is so boring I haven't been motivated enough to finish it! I felt like the plot could have gotten interesting, but NEVER did! It was like a bad soap opera, it never went anywhere.I know that there were other reviews that said this was a great read, so maybe I'm just not a fan of the amish setting.


    Has The Thorn turned you off from other books in this genre?

    YES!


    Would you be willing to try another one of Christina Moore’s performances?

    I didn't like her male voices and you could tell when she must have taken a break and then started again, it was like her voice sounded completely different in the middle of a paragraph. So probably not.


    What character would you cut from The Thorn?

    Not sure?
