Publisher's Summary

The emotionally complex novels of Mary Monroe's God Don't series have won the New York Times best-selling author a multitude of devoted fans.

In God Don't Play, trouble comes a woman's way just when she thinks she's finally got it all figured out. Annette Goode couldn't be happier with where she is in life. She has a good job, a comfortable home, and a wonderful husband and daughter. But tough times lie ahead. Out of the blue, Annette begins receiving anonymous hate mail and threatening phone calls. It seems her life isn't as settled as she thought, and demons from her past surface in unexpected ways. Now Annette is forced to question everything from her husband's faithfulness to her lifelong friendships.

God Don't Play delivers the riveting drama that Monroe's fans have come to expect. The story is powerfully told through the narration of acclaimed vocal artist Patricia Floyd.

Awkward Pauses

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The narrator was horrible! There were a ton of awkward pauses and mouth noises from the narrator.

Would you recommend God Don't Play to your friends? Why or why not?

I would recommend that my friends read this book not listen to the awful audio book

What didn’t you like about Patricia Floyd’s performance?

I enjoyed Patricia's performance in the second book in the series, but the pauses and the mouth noises were too much

Interesting

I enjoyed this book, although I knew the outcome at the beginning. The redeeming factor in a situation like this is the unfolding of the story, and there I think the author did a good job of getting to the obvious. It was a bit drawn out and repetative, but a good book nonetheless. The narrator was annoying, too may "MOUTH" sounds going on, but tolerable.

Great Story, Terrible Narrating

As usual, Mary Monroe delivered and excellent story. The narrator took a lot pauses, and the rainy was just bad. Overall though, the story was very good.

ENJOYED JUICY STORY NOT THE JUICY MOUTHED NARRATOR

Ok I was intrigued from the beginning story "God Don't Like Ugly" and I really like the Patricia Floyds voice.. BUT THE NASTY JUICY MOUTH SOUNDS AND CONSTANT SWALLOWING during this performance made me question just how badly I wanted to see if Annette was going to figure out whose the mystery person.. I will continue on with the series. But man.. I would love not hearing the NASTY MOUTH SOUNDS .. I would recommend this series, love the story and Rhoda is too wild..

Any additional comments?

The Narrator moves saliva around in her mouth a lot and it is find of distracting it would be great if someone would have edited it out

Pretty Good But...

Not as good as the first 2 in the series. Also, I thought it was just me until I saw other reviews, the mouth noises of the narrator (smacking, loud swallowing) tore my nerves up. I think she narrates the rest of the series so I don’t know if I’m gonna be able to handle that.

Friends Close and Enemies closer

Well, Seems everything is all hunky dory now. Their was healing and mending. Now when you have done all you can for your children or the children u raise and they still grow up and treat u like shi*. Young people have so much to learn and they think that adults know nothing as if we have never been young before. For everything Annette did for Jade I cant believe how Jade just totally hurt her so bad!! Cant wait for next book.
