    The only thing I liked about this book was the horses. The book was supposed to be about a stallion named Dynamo, but, Dynamo took a backseat in this book. Rob & jeth formed a friendship really quick and it was like Jeth was the boss and Rob the employee. Seems like Jeth was making all the decisions. Jeth dreaming about being in bed with Rob's wife, Katie, who is his boss, really. If he wasn't dreaming about being in bed with Katie he was dreaming about being in bed with Janni. This book is so poorly written and boring. I got to chapter 15 and stopped reading. I can't even finish it. I wasted my money on this one.

    Dynamo by Eleanor Gustafson is such an excellent book. I thought it would be good when I read the back, but nothing prepared me for how fantastic it is.

    Jeth made mistakes in life like we all do, but he learned many lessons from his and tries to live differently. Rob and Katie believe in Jeth and not many people ever had. Jeth knows nothing about God, but he has plenty of questions and not the ones you would expect. Another wonderful character in this book is Maybelle. She isn't in many scenes, but she plays a huge part as being Jeth's angel and always is there to help him with whatever life throws at him.

    Nothing is common about this story. It is so full of love, peace, forgiveness, life and loss. It is really, really a book to read. Eleanor Gustafson is a new author to me, but she is now a new favorite. If her other books are half as good as Dynamo they would be worth reading. I highly recommend Dynamo.

    This book clearly presents the Gospel. The struggle that takes place in each of us as we learn to submit our wills to the will of our Lord is clearly depicted in the character of Jeth. A good book to send to someone who might not listen to the Gospel in any other way.

    Dynamo is a captivating novel from the very first page!

    Jeth and the other characters are genuine folks experiencing 'real life' problems, emotions, fears and desires that can be related to.

    The story is riveting and kept me pondering in-between readings.

    There were surprising and believable twists that caught me off guard and captivated to the very last page!

    It is definitely a book that I will read again only slower this time since I know how it turns out!

    Kudos to Eleanor Gustafson! I truly hope you will consider writing a sequel.

    Dynamo the horse, is majestic. The main character "Jeth" has an immediate, visceral attraction to such beauty and power when he spots the huge stallion at a disheveled horse farm. The author tells us Jeth has "a direction in mind but no destination" however, his experiences which follow are as intense and fast paced as the horse races in which Jeth and Dynamo courageously compete.

    The author is generous with lasting mental images of spiritual testing, as the unsettling expression "used of God" comes to mind. The people she describes are memorable too; for example, we certainly wish a "Maybelle" could mentor every wandering life. Realistic scabs and scars mark characters if they proudly avoid God's grace. "Thunder, lightning, cloud and fire"of biblical proportions move constantly throughout human relationships. This story twists, turns, and evades our speculations until finally, Jeth experiences a victory lap, although we hesitate to call it a "destination". I think, instead, he takes joy in God's will; nothing else and nothing less.
