Fun Story

Our family enjoyed the plot and pacing of the story. Good choice for the narrator. Kyla Alders’ voice worked well for this text. Recommended.

A captivating, redemptive story!

I highly recommend The Man in the Dark to men and women alike. With with narrative and a very interesting storyline, this novel is one not to miss! Real life, challenging themes with well-written characters throughout. The potency of Christ’s redemption over our past, present and future is clear in his writing and makes for a hopeful, triumphant ending.

Outstanding

I absolutely loved this book. It was both very enjoyable and very encouraging in my faith. I'm a dude and I don't normally do the romance thing, but this is more of a modern day Pride and Prejudice than Twilight or anything like that. It is part small town love story, part murder mystery, but it is all rooted in a solid Biblical worldview, which was very intentional. It is just beautiful and so refreshing. This book was so encouraging in many different ways. It's amazing to me that a pastor and theologian would not only write a romance novel, but write a really good romance novel. It's testament to Doug Wilson's brilliant giftedness as a writer. I was really impressed by this book. For a guy, Doug really understands the female of the species quite well. I smiled many times throughout at all the emotional tension and internal dialogues. My favourite line was, "She was now flirting, and she knew it, but so was he, and it was all quite impossible, and she was furiously unhappy with her very happy self". It's also a great example of a Christian leader actually making culture, rather than just talking about it. Many Christians and conservatives are good at complaining, but few can actually create something like this. I think in that sense Doug Wilson is quite unique as a writer today. The only bit of the story I thought was a bit far fetched was the plot twist reveal at the end of the story. Of course, anything is possible in God's sovereignty, and it was very sweet, but it seemed a bit of a fairy tale to me. Other than that, perfect. This was a delight to listen to from beginning to end. It was captivating and refreshing and funny. I really highly recommend it.
