    This review was written for Fatherless - eBook.
    Very interesting read, with cliffhangers at the end of every chapter! I couldn't put the book down and read in only two days! Dr. Dobson does a great job paralleling the dangers of a society that turns away from God. I can't wait for the next book in the series!

    James Dobson and Kurt Bruner create a futuristic world in which the sanctity and dignity of life is at stake. In this controversial clash of traditional versus postmodern values, the authors seek to lay bare the long-term effects of fatherlessness and the devaluing of the human life. The most striking feature of this book is that it is a prediction born out of current trends in the economy and cultural direction of morale. The message of this book is a scary yet very plausible scenario. If America does not carefully examine what they stand for and the direction they are heading, the reality of this book could appear sooner than expected. Initially, I was hooked by the first chapter, then I had a difficult time staying with it. It seemed to build and build and then not really resolve. Up until the last few pages, every detail mattered and then in the end it seemed to hastily fizzle out. I know that this is only the first of three novels, so hopefully the others can stand alone a little better. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher and was not obligated in any way to write a positive review.

    as i read the semi-surreal stories of the characters, i wonder, "how can they act this way?", " doesn't God matter any more?", "when did this become acceptable?". then my mind recalls the talks at the office between coworkers, the actions of kids at the grocery store and the latest tv shows. what seems like a surreal future is beginning in today's real life.

    dobson and bruner have created a potential future, one i don't wish to see become reality. i recommend this to everyone and look forward to the series. a bit disappointed that i have to wait a few months to get back into these characters' lives.

    It took me awhile to get into this book. I understood what the authors were trying to accomplish by writing this but the story just did not thrill me. The book is fictional which is obvious from the beginning. It takes place when life really doesn't mean anything to anyone. It is a sad book with spots of happiness. I gave this book 4/5 stars. I enjoyed the creativity of the storyline but felt the story itself was not that enjoyable. If you enjoy science fiction novels or end times type novels you may enjoy the story better than me.

    I would like to thank the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.

    I got about 1/2 through this book but just couldn't get into it. I was really disappointed. I guess it just wasn't for me.
