      Having a son who is diagnosed with schizophrenia, this book helps the reader understand some of what being locked up in the chains of darkness feels like.

      I loved the part when the man across the sea is coming. All hell and darkness attempts to stop him from delivering the man. But it has no power against the Almighty. Peace Be Still. Hallelujah.

      I totally loved this book.

      I think this book is hideous and depressing. So much evil in it. It is boring too. It will give you nightmares. I think she is talented to write in such detail but where do these authors get this stuff and why would you write something like this?

      Very riveting. Love the historical context. I enjoy how the author writes about family dynamics and how these relationships affect them throughout their lives.

      Riveting! Madman is the most uniquely-written biblical fiction I have ever encountered. The characters are incredibly well developed; the character names are unique, but easy to remember. Groot draws an incredible portrait of the madman and of the internal struggles we all face. The dialogue is often humorous and is strangely modern, but it works, probably because it is used throughout the novel, so it doesnt stick out as anachronistic. The plot is developed astonishingly well and includes several spots of complete surprise. The Palestinian setting adds immensely to the tone of the novel, and the cult of Dionysus is explained well. Groots constant use of excellent, evocative phrases such as, her apron had a little bit of fresh in it from the clothesline, makes readers feel as though they are participating in the story. All too often, biblical fiction falls flat because its a rehash of a story weve read dozens of times, and of characters who have grown old with the rereading. Madman is a fabulous, well-written biblical fiction with characters that come alive, an intriguing plot that focuses on the portion of the story not accounted for in the Bible, and an excellent, subtle portrayal of the gospel message.
