I almost didn’t finish this several times because of the language and explicit sexual details. But the story line was so interesting I wanted to see how it ended so bad I’d just fast forward through bedroom details and cringe at the language. I don’t understand why authors find it necessary to go into such detail or use such language. I love to hear Kate narrate she can make a story.

The story is not her best but it’s ok but the narration was bad enough almost didn’t finish it several times. There were times she wasn’t as bad as others but the last of it was almost unbearable for me. Some are just not the best in this field and not to be mean it’s just not her calling.

Wasn’t happy that there was bad language and too much sexual details. Less is more in my opinion. I’ve listened to this author before and didn’t remember her books being like that.

The story was one that kept you going and it could have been a great book except for the nasty 4 letter word they seem to think was so necessary. I almost returned it so many times because of it and I still hate that I listened to the whole thing but the story was captivating.

The storyline was really good, the narration was really good, using my Lord's name in vain is so disgusting and un necessary

The nasty language

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

What did you love best about Fire by Night?

Sharing of God's word through the lives of the characters, the beginning of new life in Christ, and the laughter at the end made me rush to purchase the last book in the series. I must say it will be hard for another to stand up to this one! great listen!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Starting out with total dislike of Julia's character to a great respect before the book was over and Ike/Phoebe was terrific! You can't help but love her all the way to the very end and that left me laughing out loud! It was if I knew her personally!

What about Christina Moore’s performance did you like?

She was great also, she was able to change her voice to the point that you had the character totally pictured in your mind, it was as if you knew them!

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

YES! And almost did! I tried to save it and make it last it was sad to me when it ending because I wanted to go on with the lives in the book! I wasn't ready to give them up.

Any additional comments?

I'm almost dreading to begin the last book in this series because I really doubt the next one will stand up to this one. I liked the first one enough to buy the second one but wouldn't buy the 3rd one until i listened to this one because I was afraid I wouldn't want another one. If the first book had been this good I"m sure I would have purchased book 2 and 3 at the same time.
This book was really one I throughly enjoyed.
Thank you Lynn Austin and Christina Moore! You make a good team!

Where does True Grit rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Totally at the top!! This was a great listen!! Loved the Narrater, she made the book you could just picture every event, her accent was great!

What did you like best about this story?

True Grit showed from the young lady!

What about Donna Tartt’s performance did you like?

LOVED, LOVED, LOVED it!!! Her accent was PERFECT!!!

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

Both!

Any additional comments?

Seldom do I get a book that my husband and I both enjoy and this we totally did!! Makes a trip go so much faster when you can get wrapped up in a good book! We came home and rented the movie!
