An exciting new voice in African-American Christian fiction, Derek Jackson writes contemporary tales of faith that resound in the hearts of readers and listeners.
Inventive story in terms of the central figure in Jermaine. However, the leaps of emotion and illogical thought processes do not fit the character.
Writing is decent and smooth. There is a flow to the story, but you will find yourself sucking your teeth on some of the typical reactions, too soap opera, TV talk showish. Should have been a little more sophisticated.
My biggest issue with the book has nothing to do with the story at all. Whoever published.produced this audio version cut too many corners and pinched too many pennies. I can hear the reader breathing. There are unexplained pauses in the reading, you expect to hear the chapter read out, but the story just continues. The production is terrible and at times a real distraction from the book.
