Outstanding!

If you could sum up Godforsaken in three words, what would they be?

Thanks, got it!

What did you like best about this story?

M. Scott Peck's "The Road Less Traveled", "Further Along the Road Less Traveled", and "The Road Less Traveled and Beyond" guided many a sufferer into recovery. "Godforsaken" does the same.

What about Lloyd James’s performance did you like?

Either this book was badly written and superbly read, or this book was superbly written and superbly read. I am inclined to believe the latter. Lloyd James' performance is nothing less than outstanding.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

"Godforsaken" was written in language of the heart. Now see it!

Any additional comments?

I can't visualize how a film of this book could be made. It would have to be at least as good as "Life of Pi".

Enlightening and comforting, I highly recommend it

I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook. I not only gained valuable insight, but a measure of comfort and reassurance. Professionally done, and at the pinnacle of academic standard of presenting a case, refuting opposing arguments, and achieving logical conclusions. I couldn't recommend this book highly enough.

Powerful, Ground-Breaking

What a fantastic book, highly researched, with a unique eye-opening perspective. Does not shy away from the toughest topics of life.

Makes You Think

What other book might you compare Godforsaken to and why?

Dinesh D'Souza's other books, What's So Great About Christianity and Life After Death: The Evidence.

I would say this book rates in between in quality of content, with What's So Great About Christianity rating higher. Godforsaken, takes some of the information in What's So Great and a little from Life After Death, and expands upon it, while breaking new territory.

Any additional comments?

A good read, but it's not necessarily a book to listen to when you're driving in busy traffic, for example, as if you lose concentration in certain parts, you'll miss the point being made and the logic behind it.

Excellent

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I don't agree with everything D'Souza says, but it enriched my faith and made me think. It definitely answers the question of why bad things happen and is there a God who cares? Well worth the time. I highly recommend it.

Home run

Heartwarming. Dinesh combines intellectual diction in a manner that laymen could grasp. I admire his sincere and unpretentious style. Well worth the purchase.
