The story was very good...similar in theme to the Nicholas Cage movie, "The Family Man". The lead character changed his mind a few too many times for me, but I understand how it played into the changes in his life. Will definitely read more by Mr. Rubart!

Very, very enjoyable! Glad I purchased this audio book. I also liked his book, "The Chair". I anticipate purchasing more of Mr Rubart's books. The narration was very good, also. This is Christian Fiction at it's best. Thanks, Audible, for making this genre' available!

Would you consider the audio edition of Rooms to be better than the print version?
I bought the ebook and audio as whisper-sync from Amazon. It was the first time I had used this system, which enables you to either read or listen to the book and it will sync to the last point you have got to regardless of format. I'm not sure what I did wrong, but I started reading, went to audio, and when I went to listen to it again it took me back to where I had been reading! It is good though, to have the choice. Personally, I preferred to listen to it and think it would have taken me a lot longer to read it.
What other book might you compare Rooms to, and why?
I would say it is similar to e.g. Paolo Cohelo, as he brings the allegory to life through simple story telling. Also echoes of the Butterfly Effect in terms of how different actions have their own reactions and repercussions, although it's not at all violent or disturbing.
Which character – as performed by James L. Rubart – was your favourite?
I liked Rick, and Sarah.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I loved the moments of realisation, which even if we can see them a mile away are truly revelatory for Micah! I loved to see what was behind each new door, and how Micah would respond to it. And I really felt for young Micah, I just wanted to hold him and tell him how great he was and that it would all be OK.
Any additional comments?
I really wanted to give it a 5, however something about it was just too simplistic and a little trite. That said, it is a good read and does make you think. Great narration, really enjoyed listening to it.
I have listened to both of Rubart's books on Audible now and have to say the the Christians will love this book. I do not feel though that his writings are preaching, quite the opposite they are quite uplifting although a little corny in some, but only some, places. The actual stories, without the God part make for very good and quite original stories. Definately worth listening to. My only gripe; the author really should have let someone else read his books.
