This was a very long but interesting read. My husband and I both were entertained by how much Strobel (who narrates the book) sounds like Shawn Boonstra, the director of Voice of Prophecy. Lots of good information, and 95% of it was explained in a way that this neophyte could actually understand.
I’ve greatly enjoyed Brown’s other books, The Boys in the Boat(I wrote another post about TBITB here) and The Indifferent Stars Above, and this was every bit as good. Brutal and graphic in parts, so not for the squeamish, but if you’ve been around here long, you know I thrive on the morbid.
I had the privilege of reading a dozen books from other authors who debuted in 2019 (okay, eleven, if you don’t count mine, BUT I DID READ MINE THIS YEAR TOO! Because I recorded the audiobook! Which you can listen to here on Scribd! It’s supposed to be on Audible eventually too, but they’re taking forever about getting it on there.)
Okay, I won’t count my own book. Here are the ones I read that were Not By Me:
Eva was born in Jacksonville, Florida. She left that humidity pit at the age of three and spent the next twenty-one years in California, Idaho, Kentucky, and Washington before ending up in Oregon, where she now lives on a homestead in the western foothills with her husband and five children, two of whom are human.
