    "Francine Rivers"

    Francine Rivers is a riviting author. She takes real events from the bible and spins a wonderful story around the facts. Very enjoyable to listen to. I recommend this book to anyone who loves the Bible and enjoys fictional characters bringing the Bible to life.

    "Buy this book!"

    This is an amazing story. But it also is changing me. I am a Christian, but I am learning so much about my life and myself listening to it.
    You will not be disappointed. If I could give it 10 stars, I would.

    "Good story that I really liked..."

    Since it is about the Roman games it reminded me alot of the Gladiator movie with a Christian twist. A little more daring than her other books, but I enjoyed the story.

    "WAY too preachy, even for Christian Lit"

    I'm a huge fan of Christian books, but this one spent soooo much time detailing one of the main character's conversions that I ended up listening to a 20 minute sermon, instead of the plot, story, and characters I had hoped to her from. No dialogue, no flashbacks--nothing but this one character going on and on and on about coming to Jesus. I'm a very devout woman, but come on already!

    "Loved it! All I can say!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Left a full review on the third book, don't worry no spoilers - but this is an amazing series! don't hesitate. I have loved every minute!


    Which character – as performed by Richard Ferrone – was your favorite?

    Very picky about narrators after to listening to so many amazing ones here and though his females voices are a little weak, the story has a life of it's own and it was not distracting. He does a nice job otherwise. Don't let the negative review distract you, Worth it!

    "Francine does it again!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Definitely, but it may be too religious for those who don't already have a faith.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's not as heartbreaking as redeeming love but still amazing and very addicting!


    Which character – as performed by Richard Ferrone – was your favorite?

    Hodasa (since it's an audio book, I don't know how it's spelled!)


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

    If only I had the time! But I don't.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommended. Francine does such an amazing job of tying religious values into heartwarming stories that make me proud to be Christian.

    "Not a fan"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It was a long story that kept me waiting for someone to change their perception of God and Jesus, but only 1 changed - on his deathbed.


    Any additional comments?

    The other Francine Rivers books I have purchased are pretty good! But this one has me questioning if I would waste another credit, or any more money, on any more of her books.
    The narrator was good!

    "Poor character development"
    What disappointed you about A Voice in the Wind?

    The characters in this novel seemed stuck in themselves. The Romans, especially, did not change from the beginning to the end. I found they got to be irritating and tiresome.


    What was most disappointing about Francine Rivers’s story?

    The ending was disappointing. Hadassah, the main character, changed a little bit in that she conquered her fear. None of the characters seemed to be able to influence one another in a positive way after thirty some chapters.


    What three words best describe Richard Ferrone’s performance?

    serious, genuine, average


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment, sadness

    "A waste of my time"
    What disappointed you about A Voice in the Wind?

    The story goes on forever,. It is suppose to be Christian romance but there is no happy ending. I hate movies and books that end that way. I want to be entertained not depressed. It is not a romance novel.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Francine Rivers again?

    No


    How could the performance have been better?

    Everything ended sad, give us a break. Someone could have had a happy life. God blesses us so much.
