Scott Brick if a fantastic reader but not after 20 plus books of a series read by Dick Hill. Changes everything about the story and series. I believe Dick Hill should read this and those who purchased this book should be given a choice of what version of the book to keep without charge. Scott Brick is a great reader also but not for the Jack Reacher series.

The beginning of an amazing partnership and love

I have always loved the story of Noah.
It was an exciting, miraculous story
of how the good guys win and the bad guys
won their just deserts....
As I became older, the concept of justice and
mercy made this story more complicated and
this is what I appreciated about the "Heart of a Lion".
It was a hard thing for a human man to comprehend the working of the Creator. The difference between how the mind of God and the mind of humanity saw good and evil, happiness and safety, and yes justice and mercy.
Noah looked for the heart of God and so developed a steadfast (great old word) trust in Him.
The old story unfolds with fresh heart wrenching yet heart warming twists. The characters are all neighbours, friends and family. Real hearts and minds are involved, for good or ill.
It made me appreciate the confusion man can come to without knowing (in the real sense) a different supreme Being.... Someone who doesn't think like a human, but very, very clearly.
What does that look like?
It's hard, but He is good.

It was great to meet Methusalah and hear his take on his dad Enoch...how his long life impacted on the next generations, especially Noah. It was so much fun.
Aso, I loved the concepts of the new, primitive world, close to creation, fallen, yet amazing.
It was so plausible, even probable and I really enjoyed it.

I agree this book series is a little trite, but actually, Ms. Henderson has obviously done good research into the individual careers of her protagonists. I like the stories. I just ignore the trite-ness and I'm glad that the world of relaxation literature has some good interesting Christian stories. What an awesome way to explain the gospel and the proofs of Jesus and the church. That got the extra star handsdown.

I enjoyed When the wind Blows so much that I read the book and then listened to the story from Audible. I was fascinated to find Max Ride. What a letdown. I guess young children would find it sweet but actually the violence would be too harsh. Adults....I found the character's voice a good match and I already liked Max's pluck and humor but please, choose your age group. I felt like Max's story had gone from fantasy science fiction to comic book triteness...sheesh

holy cow!!!!!

I get tired of Alex Cross, I can't get into the ladies, I hum and haw over Patterson and then he hits a home run with some story that grabs your heart and your attention. This book was soooo good! My wife and started listening in the morning while in bed and just stayed there and did nothing for most of the day cuz it was so absorbing. I don't mind a little cry and happy stuff mixed in with such an excellent plot. Loved the characters. Forget Alex Cross, Mr. Patterson. Bring us more people to cheer on.
