What did you love best about Disciple?
The story is great, I have to give it high marks for that.... presents a sense of being in the real world in first century Palestine. Love the book. I bought the others in the series.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
The woman who narrates has a high voice and her impressions of male voices is really bad. And in a story set in first century Palestine there are a lot of males! So consider that...BUT I am still glad I have the book. It was worth it because the writing is terrific.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No, it's rather long so it wouldn't be practical.
