Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gianna Kudar | 9/14/2013

    " Amazing book. You can find scriptual prayers for every situation. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rejina | 8/15/2013

    " I read and re-read this one. Prayers taken from scriptures to apply to every situation. Such comfort and direction and lots of answers to prayers! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 5/16/2013

    " Lots of prayers covering a wide range of needs, very useful to keep on the current shelf. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca Romaneski | 6/25/2012

    " A book of prayers using scripture. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 10/23/2011

    " This is a book you can not read just page by page. It is one that you read as you need to pray about different areas in your life. I have already jumped from topic to topic in the last two days. Great guide for showing you how to pray God's word over different circumstances...Great tool... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alyssa | 5/17/2011

    " This book was a smooth read, but I found a lot of the plot unbelievable and almost 'silly'. Toward the end I wanted more than I got as a resolution and I felt like the book did not have much by way of character development. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 kdubbs | 4/17/2011

    " I actually ended up liking this, but it missed the mark in a lot of ways. It was really slow to get going, and it just never really delivered on all of it's main themes, I thought. But, I did get into it and would say you should read it too. It's quick. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brenda | 4/13/2011

    " The beginning of this book really drew me in with great descriptions and an unusual storyline. The ending got a little strange, which is why I only rated it a 3. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 4/12/2011

    " brilliant metaphors. A very dense story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Trisha | 4/12/2011

    " This had to be one of the strangest glimpses into a family life that I've ever read. I didn't necessarily enjoy the spiritual/religion aspect of the novel (interesting that they are soul-seeking. Bad that it takes up such a central part of the book). "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rebecca | 4/8/2011

    " This book was entertaining at times but most of it was over the top. I kept wondering why it was a National Bestseller and if the ending would make the whole read worthwhile. Nope. I would not recommend this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lily | 4/6/2011

    " Book is better than the movie. But, the play is good fun. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tj | 4/5/2011

    " Seriously, WTF kind of ending is this? After slogging through so much wordiness on top of it. This author did nothing but remind me of how smart she is. Ugh! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Darla | 3/18/2011

    " I'm still not sure what I think about the ending, aside from it was too abrupt... really enjoyed the book up until the last few pages. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 3/17/2011

    " Still trying to puzzle this one out. Made me think a lot about my ideas of god and life. Very good writing, just strange. It will be interesting to discuss next week. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Toni | 2/28/2011

    " A book about spirituality and insanity more than spelling. It was good, but took me a while to get through it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristenfalsocapaldi | 2/26/2011

    " I don't know...barely ok in my opinion. Very strange ending, yet predictable. The author isn't subscribing to the "show, don't tell" rule of creative writing. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Paula | 2/26/2011

    " Zero stars. Manages to insult spirituality in general, God specifically, fatherhood, motherhood, and the sacred institution of marriage. A complete waste of time and depressing to my soul. Don't read this. Rated NC-17 for sexuality. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heather | 2/24/2011

    " Just depressing and the ending kinda sucked! "
