McGuiremamaColoradoAge: 35-44Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5Not as good as his other booksAugust 23, 2014McGuiremamaColoradoAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 3Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3I find that I really like Chris Fabry's writing style. His other books were more interesting to me, however. He asks non-traditional questions that many writers don't address. In this case, his question (which he refers to in the afterword) is "what if this is as good as it gets?" I think the hardest thing for me was that it really didn't have a Christian theme to it. The storyline was interesting, but I wouldn't necessarily classify it as Christian Fiction. That said, I would recommend Chris Fabry any day, but start with at least one of his other books before this one.
Ruth5 Stars Out Of 5Every Waking Moment by Chris FabrysAugust 21, 2014RuthQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I thoroughly enjoyed Every Waking Moment by Chris Fabrys. I found it to be a smoothly written, well put together story about the personal worth of everyone. I found myself reading fast to see what would happen, while at the same time wishing I wouldn't get done so fast. An excellent read.
KarenNorfolk, VAAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5How do we value people's life stories?August 2, 2014KarenNorfolk, VAAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4Every Waking Moment was a captivating story set at Desert Gardens Retirement Home. Its primary theme centered around the value of each person's story, especially the elderly and outcasts in today's society. It was thought-provoking in having me examine my opinions of the value of these people, both on a personal level and at a societal level. It had well developed characters and a bit of mystery to add to the story line.
My main complaint about the book centers on its classification as Christian fiction. There were a couple of Bible readings and prayers mentioned in connection with services, and in one place it mentioned a character reading her Bible. Late in the book one character announces, "You all know I'm a Christian." I'm glad she told me, because there was very little indication of it up to that point. I'm pretty sure the name of Jesus is not there at all. No character is portrayed as having a life of prayer or worship. We could probably better label this Social Justice fiction, but I don't think such a category exists.
Overall, an engaging, thoughtful story. If you don't want to be offended by Christianity, this would be a great choice.
bookwormPennsylvaniaAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Good readJuly 29, 2014bookwormPennsylvaniaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Every Waking Moment is the first book I read by this author and despite that I usually dont read books of this genre, I found it to be well-written and interesting. The director of Desert Gardens Retirement Home, Miriam, is being forced to retire. She wonders what it will be like to be retired and how she will cope being with her husband more often especially since she feels more like a casual friend and not his wife. Then, Devin and Jonah come to the facility to document the stories that the residents tell them in order to preserve their memories and insights of life. As the two document the stories, something strange begins to happen. Several residents with dementia so severe that have lost the ability to communicate start coming out of the fog and begin to communicate, but only with Treha, a cleaning lady who harbors a secret. As the characters begin to get to know each other, they discover that some changes are coming to the retirement home that will affect the residents in a not so positive way. Will Miriam and her husband come to terms and find love again? Will the documented memories of the residents be shared to the world? What secret is Treha hiding? What changes are in store for the retirement home and can they be stopped before it is too late?
eb7bibliophileHigh Desert WestAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Wonderful!July 23, 2014eb7bibliophileHigh Desert WestAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have read several novels by Chris Fabry, and each one just gets better than the last. His characters are engaging and real, and he is a great storyteller. This book contains mystery and the search for family, plus a unique main character who tugs at the heart. The tension is resolved very satisfactorily. The ending is sweet but leaves some bits open, for me to surmise how they came out. That is part of its charm.
