    "Great book, wonderfully read..."

    I really enjoyed this book when I read it a few years ago, so I decided to try it on Audible. I'm glad I did, I couldn't wait to listen every day! Francine Rivers is a gifted story teller and Kate Forbes did a terrific job of drawing me in.

    I highly recommend "The Last Sin Eater" to anyone looking for a satisfying "read".

    "M K Hudson"

    This is not only read very well... the best! It is also such a good read. I read the book, watched the Movie from Netflix, but this was the best. I listen to a lot of books from both Audible, and from I Tunes. I put this book on the very top of the list of books I've read, or listened to. So much history, and such an inspirational work. Like nothing I've ever read. This is a book I will give as a gift to many friend both like minded and non commited Christions / believers in Christ my Lord. No matter your faith, I highly recommed this book to any reader.

    "Love"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Last Sin Eater to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the print version.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the interesting turns this story took. The history written in was fabulous.


    Have you listened to any of Kate Forbes’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I haven't. But would like to!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I think I did both at different times.

    "Another best for Francine Rivers"
    Where does The Last Sin Eater rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Forbes' narrating is amazing! I can't imagine reading it myself and enjoying it as much.


    What other book might you compare The Last Sin Eater to and why?

    Redeeming Love was maybe my favorite Rivers book so far, but easy to see why this was a winner.


    What about Kate Forbes’s performance did you like?

    Such expression with the accents--I loved it.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely!

    "WOW….This book is amazing!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Last Sin Eater to be better than the print version?

    I am a book-aholic, this was my very first audio book and I really enjoyed being able to listen as I worked…(type A personality) So yes, the audio was better for me this go round.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    A favorite character would be had to choose…I enjoyed each one (with the exception of the really bad guy)


    What about Kate Forbes’s performance did you like?

    She was flawless!

    "I love Francine Rivers stories."
    Where does The Last Sin Eater rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Francinse Rivers stories always tug at my heart. Hearing of a time gone by and looking at our current pagan world, makes me feel that there is hope for us yet.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I enjoyed hearing the boldness of the man sent by God. He was so bold and brave.

    "Caught up in the story"

    Even though I had read this book a few years ago, I had enjoyed it so very much then, I decided it was worth a listen. I'm so glad I did, I was quite caught up all over again in the story. That narrator puts you right there in the mountain community of many years back, vivid descriptions of the mountains, the people in the story came to life for me.
