Publisher's Summary

When four recent high school graduates return home from a weekend of camping, they expect to go back to life as usual. Instead, the boys discover empty streets, abandoned cars, and utter silence - everyone has disappeared. As the friends attempt to solve the mystery, they stumble upon more questions than answers. Why won’t the electronics work? Where did the wind go? What do the notebooks full of gibberish mean? With each new discovery, they learn that nothing was ever quite what it seemed on Echo Island and that a deep secret is drawing them in - if only they would surrender to it. 

Join Bradley, Jason, Archer, and Tim on this exploration into myth and mystery. Uncover exactly what happened on Echo Island and what these four friends’ story has to do with God, the meaning of life, and the nature of reality.

Beyond bad

I should have returned this book as soon as I heard the narrator break into the various characters voices. They are over the top and awful. The writing is obnoxiously flowery - like it’s trying to be deep and meaningful - but it’s really just annoying. The story is self-serving and jumps the shark half way through when it becomes a book about a story within a story. Save yourself six hours and walk away.

Pretty Good

It got off to a slow start. The voice actors are Ok. I guessed what was going on after a few chapters, but it still held my interest enough to want to hear how the story would develop and end. I'm an adult so I'm not the target demographic for the book. If anyone asked if they should read it, I'd say yes, it's entertaining. Just don't expect Tolkien or C.S. Lewis :-)

Did not enjoy

Too slow, then when it was interesting kind of left you with a void. Maybe I am not a deep enough thinker. Was disappointed

A delight

As an adult now, I wish I would have had this book when I was a teenager to help think through the deep issues of life regarding God's sovereignty and the will of man

Was not what I expected

This story was slow and scattered, the plot was all over the place . I gutted it out to finish. Not a fan.
