    " Good fast read. It did get a little slow 3/4 the way through but picked back up at the ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sherry Grussing | 2/4/2014

    " The lead character tells you straight up that you won't like him and, ta-dah, you don't! I enjoyed this book, but it was a little predictable. But that's okay. It was still a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janice | 1/8/2014

    " Totally sappy story of the prodigal son....and learning to be grateful. I read it in one afternoon and enjoyed it, even though it followed a predictable story line. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chris | 12/30/2013

    " An okay book that mirrors the Parable of the Prodigal Son. The first half of the book was pretty good, but then quickly slumped afterwards. It was really a typical Christian fiction book and used lots of Christian vocabulary that no one would use in real life to make it seem more Christianlike. The book also used a lot of stereotypes with the Latino family saying "Amigo" and many other "Spanish words" a lot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie O | 12/15/2013

    " Nice, quick, feel-good read. Predictable, but enjoyable. "

    " Very quick read with a wonderful message. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shannon | 9/3/2013

    " Nice story. A little too predictable and sorta unrealistic, but I enjoyed it. RPE is a great story-teller. Moral of the story: We all are just one step away from losing everything. I enjoyed the reminder of that. We should never take things for granted. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angela | 7/14/2013

    " Quick and easy read. Great messages. Liked the "journal entries." Too tidy of ending, but a good read. "
