    "Ok - narrow audience; narrator not suitable"

    I think I might have been too eager to read this book due to the title combined with my needs. Yes, it definitely concentrates on the second half of life, but it makes the assumption that couples have had offspring and are also emptynesters. I'm nearly 50, but my youngest is 9 years old and that situation tends to be more commonplace now. The book assumes and expects you are Christian and believer in God, which is clear from the summary, but if you are not, it doesn't seem like this book can be that helpful. In fact, if Christianity is very much a part of your life, then I'm not sure why this book would even be that necessary, really.

    Perhaps I would not be as critical if it weren't for the narrator. I think the narrator is a terrible fit for this book. I kept returning to thoughts of, "It's only 4 hours...you can listen for that long since the content might be so meaningful and needed." One thing I couldn't tell from the audio sample is how it seems like Mr. Berkrot is reading a mystery novel. His tone almost always sounds like it's in suspense mode which is completely unmatched for the content of this book. Also, the book includes real couples speaking from their "voices," but I couldn't detect a change in the narrator's voice for any of them. Any man or woman sounded like the same suspenseful masculine speaker. That is odd to me considering he's an actor, experienced narrator, and my experience of listening to numerous books containing various characters demonstrates narrators' abilities to give a distinguished voice to each character.

    There are some worthwhile tidbits. A one-page summary could have provided that. However, I think it's encouraging, and provides hope, when other couples share their stories (at minimum, it usually helps others feel less alone). It's a pretty quick read, so if one is interested, I'd recommend reading the book instead.
