Story Grew As If A Magic Beanstalk In My Garden

Would you listen to She Is Risen: The Gun Control Case Studies again? Why?

Sure believe me no one is more stunned than me that this is well worth the listen but believe me it is in fact worth the listen. The characters are written so well and so detailed that you really get who they are and what they are prepared to do. In order to move their personal and professional agenda forward.


Who was your favorite character and why?

You will learn to love May who manages to keep it together how I am not sure but she does it.


Which scene was your favorite?

If you are anything like me I know what you are thinking after reading the blurb. “Her three visits per week to the shooting range have put May on an exclusive list of people that are being monitored for gun violence” The same thing I thought “yeah right.” However, like me you would be totally wrong don’t let the blurb fool you. It is that very wacky theory that turns this from a ho-hum high intrigue, suspense government conspiracy book. This book turns the premise into a fascinating and compelling journey through the reality of government top secret research and covert actions.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

One of my favorite additions to the current glut in technology is the option of audio books. I spend much of my time in retirement doing what I always vowed I would do. Create the perfect whimsical, sprawling flower garden. Well for all of you out there with this goal it is a long, lonely boring task. Hello! It just got made easier with discovery of the audio book.
I weeded three entire beds I was so into this book I did not want to quit gardening as I have a rule audio books in the garden only.


Any additional comments?

I loved this book and the narrator has a great voice that translates well on tape. It is an art reading a book out loud and this particular narrator does a great job.

I recommend this book highly go on take a walk on the wild side. Get the book and get out in that garden and do something. You might be surprised how much you get done by embracing the ‘audio books allowed only in the garden.’ I’m giving this five stars because it was a wonderful book and the plus my yard looks great.

Political thriller with a touch of the paranormal

Where does She Is Risen: The Gun Control Case Studies rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The fantastic narration puts this at the top of my list.


Any additional comments?

I wasn't sure I'd like this at first. I'm all about a good conspiracy theory, but the idea of making someone go insane by sending them to the gun range three times a week was, well, ludicrous. I mean, I go to the range five days a week, and I'm not barking mad yet. However, the story was gripping and the premise of a crooked politician damning the means to justify the ends is absolutely believable. The moral dilemma Devlin faces as he comes to grips with Henri's actions was pretty powerful.

I really enjoyed the paranormal aspect, which has always been the darling of the tin foil hat crowd. The way it was worked into the story was seamless, and of course if such a thing did exist you know our government would pull out all the stops to 1) put it to use for its own good, and 2) keep the rest of us completely in the dark about it.

Overall I appreciated this story far more than I imagined, and the wonderful narration made it that much more potent. If you're into conspiracies, government agencies run amok, or the paranormal, you'll love She Is Risen.
