I requested to review this book based on another review I read. It sounded so good.
I have to say I didnt love this book. It all seemed so random to me and it took a long time to all come together. I just never connected with the characters. Maybe because there were so many point-of-view characters?
I never got invested in this story, Im sad to say. I really wanted to like it because it sounded so good and has gotten great reviews. But unfortunately, this one wasnt for me.
As always, this is my opinion only and this might be a book you enjoy.
A copy of this book was given to me by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
. . . is a refreshing read. You won't find here an old familiar story plot repackaged. In depth characters and an intriguing plot line makes The Turning a very interesting and inspiring read. Recommended.
Todays media frenzies, constant headlines meant to shock, and end-times turbulence in weather, wars, politics and finance reveals daily unlikely roads for believers, churches, America and the world. Davis Bunn gives us glimpses into minds that pour out such darkness, but also reveals how God still speaks to His followers today.
The Turning, a could-happen-tomorrow story, is a challenge to our conscience, and a call for self-examination. Do we live with the eternal perspective and worldview of these characters? Do we listen for Gods call and if directed, would we take the turn unquestioningly, or do we tend to wrestle with such a concept?
Perhaps you have already had some turnings in your life. Have you been marked by unexplainable coincidences that have turned you toward God? If so, you will relate to the characters in this story, and will eagerly anticipate what is coming next for the five who took the turning and face Trent Cooper and Gayle Sayers - and all the money and power behind them.
It is a page-turner that could have been pulled from the headlines. It left me watching for the sequel, hoping there will be a movie, and wondering if I would be willing to count the cost and take a turning.
I received a complimentary book to enable an honest review.
