Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heidi Thomas | 2/20/2014

    " A book that kept me turning the pages! Jenkins does a great job of building the tension and suspense as his main characters head toward each other on an inevitable collision course. An ending that was somewhat predictable in some respects and very unusual in others. I liked the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janet | 2/8/2014

    " This is the best book I have read in a long time!!! Even though at the get-go you think you know what is going to happen the journey is very good and there is a HUGE surprise ending!!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 LeeAnn | 2/7/2014

    " Jerry B. Jenkins has mastered the art of storytelling. Two gentlemen, on different life paths, finally merge together to create an emotional, page turning story. The plot and character development is just the right pace, and allows the reader to be empathetic to the characters during their growing number of dilemmas. I highly recommend. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debbie | 1/31/2014

    " READ THIS BOOK! Stop thinking about reading it and READ it. It's amazing. The first portion of the book tells you the story of two totally different people. Stick with it and it will all come together. I'm not an avid reader, but this was one book that kept me reading for hours at a time...something that rarely happens. You'll no doubt see yourself in this story as the tale unwinds. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maria Connor | 1/21/2014

    " This is one of my favorite books that I ever read! A great story that I could not put down. And such an AMAZING way to express God's grace and sovereign plan. What seems to make no sense, or even terrible to us, will be used for good in God's plan. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ryan | 1/17/2014

    " This book is awesome if u have not read it u must. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charyla Olsen | 1/7/2014

    " The book has a bumpy start, some frustrating parts where everybody seems to be making bad bad choices and a riveting ending that requires a great deal of thought. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Apesydaisy | 1/5/2014

    " THis book is a phenomenal book on redemption and forgiveness and the power of change! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa Pierce | 1/2/2014

    " Wow, for me being a capitalist. I have to say it opened my eyes. Great to see it from two different angles. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amberly Hall | 12/13/2013

    " This story has an amazing message and a surprising twist that affects not only those characters created by the author, but also leaves an impression on the reader. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hannah | 11/26/2013

    " A heart-rending, spiritually uplifting, and emotionally inspired book, this is a rarity. This will melt the heart of the coldest human. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Valerie | 8/18/2013

    " Really an excellent Christian Fiction novel. Basically a redemption story, but not at all what I expected, nor like any other CF book I've read. Excellent. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa | 3/4/2013

    " It was a little slow in the beginning and in some places predictable but what an awesome story of God's love for us and His faithfulness! The novel was a blessing and I enjoyed it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shirley | 4/25/2012

    " Great book. I want to say more, but it would give away the ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sherrie | 7/28/2011

    " Christian fiction...could have been 200 pages shorter and still gotten the point across, but memorable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 6/13/2011

    " Interesting read but highly unlikely ending which made me wonder if there could have been a better one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Catherine | 4/19/2011

    " I rarely read religious fiction, however this was free on Kindle and since I'm trying to limit my spending I thought I would give it a go. The book is fairly well written, interesting, not overly preachy, and less cliche than I expected. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sally | 4/16/2011

    " I really wanted to give this book a 3.5 rating, but I bumped it to a 4 because I did like it more than a 3. I think the first 75% of this book was slow to get to what you knew was coming anyway, though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Valerie | 4/6/2011

    " Really an excellent Christian Fiction novel. Basically a redemption story, but not at all what I expected, nor like any other CF book I've read. Excellent. "

    Everyone has something to learn from this book "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ben | 3/31/2011

    " The first three quarters of the book made it seem like a compelling story with nuanced characters and the last quarter became quite unbelievable, cliche and depressing. I can't say as I feel like I'm better for having read this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 3/29/2011

    " POWERFUL. This is a book that I will think of often. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sierra | 3/26/2011

    " This book was sooo good. A little preachy and too coincidental towards the end though. Be prepared with a box of tissues if you're going to read this!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beverly | 3/21/2011

    " Jerry Jenkins novel "Riven" is available for a free download on amazon and barnesandnoble.como until March 31. Its a good deal. The author refers to it as "his life's work." "
