Publisher's Summary

A tragic accident in the Carolina mountains leaves a young man paralyzed and in a coma. Soon a fierce legal battle erupts between the man's wife, who wants to terminate life support, and the young man's father, who wants to keep his son alive at all costs. Caught up in the turmoil is a young female attorney who takes the case and finds out that her client's husband isn't the only person in need of life saving measures.

Good, many faceted plot line

For listening while on a long drive, this was very good and mostly held our listening attention. The only downer was the excessive number of times Reyna (Sp?) repeated the sentiment that 'I'm sure he'd want to die" or such like. Having listened to both parts, I'd like a Part 3 that deals with the aftermath of the climactic events. Robert is such a good writer and having read the book there is too much left out, which is sadly true of his other audio books. Quite why there's a time limit placed on an audio book I really don't know - it's not like there's a constraint on file sizes these days. Would that Audible would reconsider their abridging policy and just read the entirety of Robert's excellent books so we can enjoy them to the full. Recommend getting the book so you can fill in the obvious gaps.

Life Support

I was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed the storyline in this book. My expectations aren't that high for Christian novels, so I found this to be refreshing. There was some intrigue. The big downside was that it just ended...it felt like the story wasn't complete.

Suspense with a great Christian Theme

This one kept me on the edge and wanting to continue to listen. It has a great Christian theme with messages of redemption, hope and healing and real examples of how sin leads to sin. Fantastic book!

A surprisingly good book

Would you listen to Life Support again? Why?

I think I will follow the series it has strong characters and keeps your interest

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

I travel on the road a lot so I get to listen to good portions at a time

Any additional comments?

The narration was good took a little to get into but now I enjoy it

Will it ever end?

That's what I kept thinking as I listened to this book. I read the whole series hoping it would get better. It dragged on in its narrative and never lingered in my mind like others I've read. The characters were poorly developed and very difficult to connect to. I kept hoping someone would review this too, but I'm the first. I hesitated writing a review, but I want to save you from even considering Whitlow's Santee Series!
