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..

Good book but it repeats the story from previous

What did you love best about God Don't Play?

Brings the children of the main characters into the storyline.

Would you be willing to try another book from Mary Monroe? Why or why not?

Yes, she is a great writer.

Which scene was your favorite?

When the main character Annette finds out who her stalker is...

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

Yes

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

Good book

Other than the annoying swallowing noises that the narrator kept making the book was good.

Predictable, but good story...

The narration leaves something to be desired. As stated the story is good, considering I enjoyed the first 2 "GOD DON'T/AIN'T" stories enough to look forward to the entire group (all 6) of them.

I would recommend it.

Is the Narrator making swallowing sounds?

I really couldn’t get into the book due to the sounds of the narrator. I first I thought it was just a one time thing. However, the further I got into the book the more it sounds like she’s sucking on a piece of candy or drinking something. I loved her narrative in other books but this one, I just can’t.

3rd book and last out of the three

I absolutely loved the first book. I liked the 2nd one but not as much as the first. This one became extremely annoying for a long part of the book while the main character overreacts to comments about her husband given to her by unknown people. She screams, runs away, attacks him---it was ridiculous. I liked her up until this book but didn't like her much here. She also makes stupid decisions with Jade. I am not returning it because it isn't terrible but was kind of a disappointment after reading the first book.
