I have to say, I enjoyed this book a lot more than I thought I would. It took a turn I did not expect and at first I was like, "really, you're gonna go there?!?" But I stuck with it, as I was enjoying the writing and I really got into the story.
I liked the ending, and ...more
Nowhere on the front or back cover is Peretti's God-bothering mentioned. Only when I read the review quotes on the first page did it begin to dawn on me that he is "the king of the faith-based fiction genre" and "the world's hottest writer of spiritual thrillers". (I had to LOL that they included the NYT's re ...more

Ever since I was a kid, I had a thing for cryptids, so imagine my surprise when I saw that Frank Peretti had written a book dealing with Bigfoot.
I had my first exposure to Peretti years ago when I read The Oath, which, if memory serves me correctly, I enjoyed. At the time, I made it a point to check out more of the author's work but just never got around to it. Between li ...more
What I do have a problem with is the way the women characters are infantilised. Also the final straw for me was one of the men talking about how he'd chosen his beautiful meek wife at youth group after having considered and dismissed every other woman in the group.

If you are a busy person this is a great book to pick up as well because each chapter has a logical stopping point so you can mark your place and come back readily. Tho' it is pretty exciting and you may not want to do that.
He sure did a great job of creating the atmosphere in which t ...more

Peretti is a natural storyteller who, as a youngster in Seattle, regularly gathered the neighborhood children for animated storytelling sessions. After graduating from high school, he began playing banjo with a local ...more
