What the Critics Say

"The story of Jude's existential crisis and his gradual redemption through the healing power of prayer, forgiveness, good works and the occasional jaw-dropping miracle is compelling." (Kirkus Discoveries)

    "I LOVE THIS BOOK!"

    I've long been a fan of horror/suspense stories, and the dark, creepy undertone of this story is very, very satisfying. Reminds me of an early Peter Straub.
    The Christian theme to this novel is well done. No doctrine shoved-down-the-throat, but a gripping supernatural story, which seems eerily plausible. It will come across well to Christians and non-Christians alike.
    Be warned: it's very close to a horror novel, or at least a very suspensful thriller. I LOVED it, but some scenes are fairly graphic, espcially the scenes involving the pedophile and the missing children.
    The character development is as good as I've read in any novel, the dialog intelligent, and the narrator's voice suits the story well, and gives it a dark edginess.
    This is the most suspensful and memorable audiobook I've listened to in over a year. I can't wait for more from this author.

    "fan-freaking-tastic"

    This was just an incredible story. T.L. Hines is now up there in my top 3 with Dean Koontz, and H.P. Lovecraft. Cant wait for his next book.

    "Good book"

    I was alil worried it would be very religious and try to force feed me that threw out the book but i have to say the author worked the religious part in and the mystery part in very well.

    "Excellent"

    Wow! - Nice to hear an author who can include faith in a story that is in the same league as Dean Koontz and Stephen King.

    "Excellent!"

    T. L. Himes is definitely a novelist to watch. I absolutely fell in love with this novel’s full cast of expertly developed characters, a plot thick with tension and unpredictable twists and turns. The narrator did the perfect job, somehow he even managed to bring to life a few subtle elements of the story that I missed in the written version.

    A definite thumbs-up to both author and narrator, and probably the best audio book I’ve listened to all year!

    "Great book all the way around!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Waking Lazarus to be better than the print version?

    I did not read the story, so I do not know the answer to that question.


    Which character – as performed by Tom Stechschulte – was your favorite?

    Jude


    Who was the most memorable character of Waking Lazarus and why?

    Frank was pretty memorable, just because I thought I had him figured out, but I was wrong!


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great book. It has everything that I like in a book. It was suspenseful, the characters were interesting and believeable. There were twists and turns and lots of surprises. There was no foul language that I remember. The only thing I wish that the author would have included is something that a lot of stories that deal with a life after death experience is missing....the truth. I know this was a fiction book, but since it is suppose to be a Christian book, I would have loved for the author to mention the way to heaven...through Jesus Christ and what he did to save humanity. Jesus said, "There is only one way to the Father..and that is by me."

    "Baloney"

    This book is religion disguised. It's just too full of religious dogma disguised; I could not stand it after a while. For a true believer, it might be a useful book.

    "Not thrilled"

    If you are like me -- you don't feel that you are overly prejudicial about religion but, at the same time, you don't care to indulge in it -- then, you may find as I have that the promotion of this book to be a bit of a ruse. That is, the description gives the impression that, while it is a "Christian novel," it won't just outright bombard you with religion. But it does. And, by the way, there is no comparing this author to King or Koontz. No comparison at all.
