I love how this book depicted marriage. What it means to be a wife or a husband. In a society that so much betrayal goes on in marriage. This book takes you back to the basics of how it is intended to be. There are still difficulties faced but I loved the compassion and understanding Adam and Eve show for each other. The recording could have been MUCH better. Focusing in on the story helped though.
I really enjoyed this book. I continued to think about it for many days after I finished. Adam and Eve's relationship was different in the garden then I have always pictured it but I like that it gave me another point of view. I love the journey they go on together and the way their relationships deepens and grows through the book.
I struggled with the girl reader, Angel Clark and enjoyed the chapters read by Matthew much more. I especially felt like Angel depicted Adam's voice as monotone and robotic which made him seem cold and unfeeling. It isn't the way I would imagine him saying his dialogue if I had been reading it.
I love this author and was very disappointed by this audio book. The story was interesting but was completely ruined by the narration. The voice of Eve sounded like a whiney teenager most of the time. She had odd breaks and her emphasis on certain words made the narration choppy and hard to listen to. When she was speaking as Adam, her voice was irritating and made him to have an attitude I don't feel would have been his. Very teenage self important and I am the boss hear me. Adam's voice when he spoke for himself was very wooden and monotone.
And then there was the voice of God who sounded odd and just was not convincing. They all sounded like a middle school production. I feel the author's book was done a disservice by this narration. Better narration could have kept my interest and I just could not finish the book. I really really tried. I am fairly forgiving of errors and love to know the details of my reading journey. I never like leaving a book unfinished.
I received this audio book for a fair and honest review.
