Good review. I like that this one makes you think. It's not just entertainment but thought provoking as well.

Since the beginning of time the simple message to “love one another” has been hijacked by religious groups and distorted for their own use. I am fascinated to read this, it sounds like it has quite a philosophical angle.

Thanks for your review, you gave me a great "look inside" the book, the plot sounds engaging and spiritual, I like this genre. I will be reading it very soon.

Great review!!! "A Thinking Thriller" sounds extremely intriguing! I also enjoy novels based on a person's religious journey.

Well, I grudgingly say, "Great review"-you did a great job of getting across the heart of the book without giving anything away--even though I really wanted to!

I found what I read to be VERY well-written, both in logic and descriptiveness. I'm very curious to read more.

As noted by the reviewer, the author’s hope that
If I get even one ‘hmmm’ out of you I will have succeeded
is a genuine concern that ALL authors should strive to achieve.

I love the dichotomy of God-awakening experience and real-world interference. These are true challenges we face every day. How can we make it through the noise of this world to our own understanding of and relationship with God? I cannot wait to check this one out!

Latest Review: Ironbark Hill by Jennie Linnane

Post by elizab8 » 31 May 2018, 22:32

I enjoyed reading the short story of "The Message" and your review. While reading it I said whoa! I am back in the classroom reading about "Socrates, Darwin and Paley" but as I continued I realized it is much more than philosophical theories. Leah's story was unreal but her belief did a healing. The author "Avam Hale" must be credited for her effort, creating such writing that is neither complex or confusing for readers; based on the many prose and cons readers have to follow in the story. I would really like to read this book.

I always been fascinated with after death experiences. People coming back from death with messeges from God is so great to me. Exciting to know what happens. Thanks for an awesome review and congratulations.

This is certainly not light reading! The author has assembled a cast of characters that represents almost every theological argument for and against God. Each has his own response to Leah’s miracle and message-including Leah. I appreciate the challenge!

Just as Paul of Tarsus,this woman have just gotten a lifetime turnaround experience with God which we continue if she does not hide the vision. Life itself needs God in all its ramifications.

I would like to give this book a chance since you mentioned it will made me to think and it appears to be unbiased to me after reading your review.

The book is well written. Very descriptive in fact! If this is your genre, then you’ll like it. For me personally it’s too dramatic and subtitled “a thinking thriller about change and choice.” Personality, change and choice when it derives from a hospital scene it’s not so attractive. It has to come from the heart. Self realization, however congratulations to the author. Such an accomplishment!
