Where does Imogene's Message rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's difficult to position this audiobook with other audiobooks because it stands alone and is unique. The story is disturbing as well as terrifying. Told with great detail the effects of religious prejudice and oppression The dark side is using torture as a method of purification. The lighter side is the resurrection of Imogene and the message she brings of not judging others and radicalism. The reality is that these practice are still being used today.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked way the story was told with lots of action and a supernatural undertone. I was totally engrossed with Zantera, Imogene's mother. When they put that leather vest on her and she realized what form of torture it was. I cried. I was completely drawn into this well-conceived story.

Which character – as performed by Timothy McKean – was your favorite?

Zantera, Imogene's mother is my favorite character. I could feel her fear confusion and disgust as the religious extremist had their way with her.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did listen to this book in one sitting, how could I not!!
It was so completing and terrifying. What pulled me in was the quick pace and twist and turns of the plot.

Any additional comments?

This would make a good movie

Life Messages!

Christine Sherborne has written a well thought out subject, with a very intense storyline, and imagination. She includes religion in her story but with vivid scenes of punishment to what happens to certain people who don't follow and practice what's known as Phineas Presthood. But there religious beliefs are outrageous in my opinion. If you don't follow their beliefs then they want you dead, period, no discussion! These fundamentalists will stop at nothing to go after those who they believe are doing evil deeds. Christine has created a magical story, filled with mystery, a touch of supernatural, and packed with action. The characters are well defined, unique, and displayed perfectly. Christine wrote an excellent paranormal mystery, I found the scenes written with expertise and in some instances rather gruesome.

Timothy McKean did a wonderful job with his telling of this story. Timothy kept me immersed a x glued to the edge of my seat from beginning to end. I found each voice identifiable. McMean did a great job with distinguishing accents and voices. I received this audio from the author/narrator through Audiobook Blast in exchange for an unbiased review.
