Cynthia Medford5 Stars Out Of 5August 16, 2010Cynthia MedfordI am a God fearing believer but I was born a sinner. Song is a sinner who towards the end of the storyline becomes a believer. I have never found a Thomas Nelson book that was not proper for a church library. I was asked by one member to read the book and still feel like it is fine for the library. I like how Hickam tells the story of how miners and their families come together in times of tragedy supporting one another. The love Song shows Cable as they both try to escape the mine was touching.
Richard Ratliff5 Stars Out Of 5August 28, 2009Richard RatliffThe previous reviewers should have finished the book. This is a great story of conversion of a nonchristian thru the love of unlikley new friends. I worked my way thru college in undergroung mines and know that the work is hard and dangerous, but the workers have great faith in God.
Nancy Matson1 Stars Out Of 5July 21, 2009Nancy MatsonI agree with the other reviewer. I had to quit reading it after the first page. It is not a Christian book.
Mark1 Stars Out Of 5July 6, 2009MarkThis book does not belong in a Christian store, or on CBD. The language and content are not Christian. Use of the "b-word" and more. This is par for the course anymore for Thomas Nelson - more people need to complain to them, as I have.
