The Narrator almost ruined it for me..:(

If you could sum up The Sinners' Garden in three words, what would they be?

Love, Grace, Mercy

What did you like best about this story?

I fell in love with William Sirls first book and HAD to get this one! His stories are FRESH; nothing "I've heard a story like this before" about it. His stories have a metaphysical feel to it, but it all works out in the end and it's not too weird at all. It's like nothing you've ever read before.

Would you be willing to try another one of John McLain’s performances?

NOT ON YOUR LIFE! His female voices were horrible; they all sounded like they were strung out on drugs which made you have to really "work" at figuring out their true character because they all sounded tired and haggard. The only voice that was ok, was Rips. Andy's voice was ok, but all of his characters besides Rip sounded WAY too old and worn out. John McLain needs to read ONLY male characters or not at all.

Any additional comments?

I hope they re-record this book with another narrator because it was really interesting and i would listen to it again, IF ONLY there was another narrator.

wonderful story, excellent narration!

Story was lovely, characters engaging. some of the plot twists were relatively predictable, but not all of them, and even the bits of predictability did not detract from the storytelling. The narration was very well done, bravo.
