Hit Hard audiobook cover art

Surprised how this story informs my own losses

I wanted to read to know the story in full of my friends, Pat and Tammy. However, the book not only drew me into the journey of the incredible disruption of such a substantial loss, but it opened my eyes to at least two more experiences. One, I feel more informed on how to come alongside others who have losses with more considerable sympathy and understanding. Two, and I did not expect this, but it has opened a window into my losses, and how I have or have not dealt with them. I recommend reading this story not only to enter into a journey with incredible depth but also to be open to exploring your own loses and precisely how you and others close to you have navigated your losses.

I have read the Bible many times, and my experience reading the order in which this reading plan has the letters laid out is the most helpful in grasping THE story, and the individual stories in each letter. The sequence for me also is more interesting to read through in that it does not read as repetitious as the traditional order of books feel. Brilliant.

I am enjoying everything about this series. I especially love the order in which the books of the bible are presented. The commentary before each book gives fabulous context and the reading performance is perfectly balanced between dramatic and just clear reading of the words. I especially love that I can increase the rate of the reading and it does not take away from the performance.

I never tire of this story of God's gracious pursuit of His bride. What a lover He is.

David Suchet' reading is wonderful to listen to even when I advance the rate. This work is excellent and I am moved each time I listen to it.

I was expecting more of a how to book. Jon is funny and crazy wise. Jon has so many great one liners that I would like to go through the book and write them down to consider longer. They are pithy, catchy and with remembering. I loved this book and I will get Jon's other book because this one is so good.

Steve was unique. He had enormous strengths and weaknesses and this book is honest about both. This record is a much more balanced review of this special person and the people that surrounded him. Well done.

Would you listen to 66 Love Letters again? Why?

I will listen to the book many times. It is that good. This is the most unique experience I have ever had with a book. The intimacy that one develops with the author and our God is very personal. Listening and thinking about this book and the bible has exposed me and revealed to me my pride, unbelief and self-centeredness while at the same time pointing toward God and his grace, mercy and love. I am loving learning about God's story and how my story fits in God's story. This book is amazing in helping the listener and/or reader understand God's love and embrace His movements toward us so what we can fully enter His story with ours.

What was one of the most memorable moments of 66 Love Letters?

Learning through the life of Solomon that Success is not Greatness.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Larry and Jim do a wonderful job reading this book, however, I wish Jim's voice was more different from Larry's. I keep wishing the voice of God was deeper and more distinct from Larry's content.

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

No, it is not designed to be experienced that way.
