Helpful to study biblical history as well!

Is there anything you would change about this book?

This is not a great book per se, but it grows on you. I think developing the principal characters more at the beginning would be helpful, as this is clearly the start of what might be a long series.

If you’ve listened to books by Tom Haase before, how does this one compare?

My first. May not be my last, but I wasn't overly impressed.

What three words best describe John M. Perry’s performance?

Not bad. Did the best he could with some clunky scenes and sometimes maddeningly juvenile dialogue.

Could you see Secret of the Thorns being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Shouldn't be. Maybe on SyFy, with no stars.

Any additional comments?

This is the debut of a new series, and is well researched, but it never clicked totally for me. Yet, I did finish it, which says something. It is so so, but for fans of biblical history, it is likely better than my rating.
