Would you listen to Soul Surfer again? Why?
I got this book because I watched the movie of the same title. I enjoyed listening, mostly because the narrator, Eleni Pappageorge, had a voice that completely embodied the character of Bethany Hamilton. I felt like it was being read by a teenager, and -- to borrow a metaphor -- I couldn't put it down. Just a total delight to listen to.
Which character – as performed by Eleni Pappageorge – was your favorite?
I enjoyed listening the most when she was "performing" Bethany herself.

I wanted to read the book before I saw the movie and I am glad I did. I enjoyed the read and thought Bethany gave some great insight to her life as a christian, a surfer and what she is doing post accident. I didn't care much for the music played between each chapter, I saw it as a filler for the audible book as it seems to be a fairly short read. The load music was the only reason why I gave it three stars.

Where does Soul Surfer rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Soul surfer is one of the best audio books we've listened to ! Engaging and inspirational - it tells a story and motivates at the same time.
What other book might you compare Soul Surfer to, and why?
Soul surfer doesn't compete with any other books. It's in a league of it's own. It's part autobiography and part spiritual guidance book.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
We enjoyed the chapter about the making of 'Soul Surfer' the movie. It really captured how it must feel to suddenly be the star of a Hollywood movie...plus your family is too.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The whole book moves you...Bethany's belief that she can love and achieve more with one arm than two and that this was the awesome plan God had for her despite the circumstance is moving and inspirational.
Any additional comments?
A feelgood factor book. Skims over the shark attack enough that you can hear this book as a family. Teaches us all something...that Faith is something to live and breathe...so listen to this book and start living !
