Publisher's Summary

"It's true what they say, you know: If you talk to God, you're religious; but if you hear from God, you're schizophrenic."

When a car accident leaves a famous movie star in a coma, nurse Kemp McAvoy thinks he has found his ticket to the life he's always wanted. As a med school dropout who was on his way to becoming an anesthesiologist, Kemp has the knowledge to carry off the crazy plan he concocts: adjust the star's medication each night and pretend to be a heavenly visitor giving her messages. He recruits her agent and a down-and-out publisher to make sure the messages will become the next spiritual bestseller and make them all rich. But his girlfriend's daughter, Leah, keeps telling people that she is seeing angels, and her mother and her teachers are all afraid that something is wrong. Before it's all over, they'll all learn a few things about angels, love, and hope.

    "Loved this book!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Wonders Never Cease to be better than the print version?

    It's always good to have a "voice" to go along with the characters. It makes it more real.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend this book. And, Audible needs to offer more Tim Downs book to us!

    Story
    "Unexpectedly Entertaining"
    What made the experience of listening to Wonders Never Cease the most enjoyable?

    The story, first of all. Good balance of drama, intrigue and humor. Storyline was pretty tight, and it had just the right amount of characters.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Emmet and oddly enough Olivia. Emmet, since he becomes the unsung hero and Olivia because she's the target of this swinish scheme and her reactions are very humorous.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There were a couple:
    Bobby acting as the angel.
    Any scene where Emmet is involved.
    Olivia in the talk shows.
    Bobby in the book signing line.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, when Emmet laid down the law about putting words in God's mouth.


    Any additional comments?

    Tim Gregory - is the other major element that makes this audiobook very worthwhile. His ability to switch between character is almost seamless. The man's got talent, a lot of it!

    Tim Downs has impressed me twice now with the Shoofly Pie and this story. I've actually ordered 2 more of this books as a result - Head Games and Plague Maker as they are more my kind of genre - suspense/thriller.

    Mr. Downs, please try to get more of your books converted to audio and please try to get Tim Gregory to narrate them. If you do, you certainly have my business!

    Story
    "Could be a fun family film"
    Which scene was your favorite?

    The Americana line scene was a perfect use of irony.


    Who was the most memorable character of Wonders Never Cease and why?

    Kemp was a little too self-centered to believe, but I still enjoyed getting into his narcissistic mind and watching him trip over his own ego.


    Any additional comments?

    This could be a great family film. The book reads like a movie. The book narration is outstanding.
