This was an enjoyable book, but I wished it had been a little deeper. I felt like I didn't really know the characters very well, not even the main character. I guess I was just expecting a little more. Still, it is a neat concept to tell a somewhat fictional story based on pieces from the Bible. My last two comments: I didn't find the narrator very enjoyable. And the small clips of music were mildly annoying.
Unfortunately, I was unable to listen to this audiobook completely and cannot rate the book itself. I found the narration to be a huge disappointment. The narrator, a woman, would attempt to change the pitch of her voice when reading the male diaglogue and it just sounded ridiculous. As much as I wanted to complete the book, I was only able to tolerate the narration for the first few chapters.
