- intriguing story line, worth the read/listen
I bought the audio book on the strength of Frank Peretti's reputation and how much I appreciate him as an author. What I discovered was a unique approach to writing a story. I loved the base line of the character parameters at the beginning and how each author fleshed out their characters within the same narrative as they followed one another. I was able to experience four different authors and their style. At first I struggled to switch between the first two authors and their stylistic differences, but later I anticipated it and enjoyed it.
I loved the weird factor of each story and how it played into the total narrative. the authors did a good job of retaining the history of the plot as the main character switched with each author. I plan on getting the next installment soon.
Although I did appreciate some author's style more than others, it did afford me the ability to scope out 3 new authors with one book.
- Loved the story.
Amazing story! It has different points of views, which makes it a really interesting story. Can’t wait for the next one!
- Not clean enough for me.
I was intrigued by the story line but there was a curse word and info about a boy giving a man a pornographic dream just withing the first few chapters. I think that that part was completely unnecessary. I will not finish this book.
