Very gripping

The story was gripping once it hooked me. It took awhile. I had a very hard time listening to the reader. Her voice sounds like a very old granny and was very very hard to get used to. But eventually the story grabbed me and I wanted to listen more. Still not a fan if the reader but definitely the author. Will listen to more if there are other narrators.

A Refreshing New Story Line

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

Surprising, Interesting, Edifying

Who was your favorite character and why?

William was my favorite character. He starts out innocent and quickly develops into a man plagued by many temptations. Although his attitude quickly changes to being selfish and lustful, he still retains a soft side that is hidden from him for a while. Once he's faced with his bad choices and how it has ruined paradise, William is repentant and wants to make things right if possible. He is very close to being human even though he's a character in a book!

What about Ruth Ann Phimister’s performance did you like?

Yes. She changed her voice to represent each main character and held my interest.

Who was the most memorable character of The Novelist and why?

Casey was the most memorable character because she represented two people. She was the allegory personage of God in her novel, and she was a stressed mother in real life.

Any additional comments?

I very much appreciated the refreshing new story line. It wasn't a preachy book, yet, it clearly showed the struggle of good and evil. It brought to life how subtle satin's attacks are and how easily we fall into his hands if we aren't vigilant in our faith.
