A Bob Jones Sermon

Overall enjoyable but I am a born again Christian and understand where all of this was coming from. I don't think many non-Christians would be able to get past all of the mini-sermons within the so-called conversations or thought lives of the characters. I felt as if I was being preached to almost the entire book. Sort of like having to listen to 50 verses of Just As I Am until someone finally goes to the alter just to get it to stop. I did like how it emphasized God's grace and the fact that ALL have sinnned , and that no sin is too great for God's grace and forgiveness.

Mind Numbing!

It was a mind numbing listen with the most uninteresting, extraneous minutiae. The characters were boring and unlikable. As hard as I tried, I could not drum up any feeling but faint distaste for the main character. This writer throws any and everything into the story. Never mind that most of the details add nothing to the storyline. It was a waste of a credit and believe me I am not an overly picky reader - I like lots of different genres. Although it felt like torture, I listened to the entire book. I'm like that - I can't waste money. But please skip over this book and go for something like "Redeeming Love "by Francine Rivers. That's a story with depth, emotion and spirituality.
