KK doesn't disappoint!

This story continues on where the Baxter saga left off. It is very well written and an enjoyable "listen." The narrators were easy to listen to, and it was nice to hear more than one narrator as the story progressed.

Excellent Story of Faith

In the line of the Baxter Family books comes new characters mixed with the ones we already know. A story of Faith, struggles, temptations, and miracles, this is an excellent Faith based book.

Absolutely edifying

What an amazing book, I know, from personal experience about the awesome , all-powerful plant-breathing God, Who steps in at the last minute, and has done amazing things in my life. I pray that this book will light the way for all who read it to this awesome God. I have loved all your books Karen Kingsbury, and pray tat God will continue to use you to build His Kingdom. The narrators were fantastic as well! God bless you all, Anthea

Entertaining story!

What made the experience of listening to Take One the most enjoyable?

I liked that the characters were deeply developed and believable. I had forgotten the fears and dreams through a young girls eyes.

What other book might you compare Take One to and why?

This was the first book that I had read (listened to) by Karen Kingsbury and enjoyed her writing very much. She has a style similar to another one of my favorite authors, Francine Rivers.

Would you listen to another book narrated by the narrators?

I liked having 5 narrators. I would have liked to have the their voices a little more distictive or recognizable. A few times this caused confusion. One of the female narrators was not good, but I couldn't say which one, because I didn't know her name. The male voices were awesome!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I cried when someone else was chosen for the leads girlfriend. That must have been very hard for the producer/dad.

Any additional comments?

I loved this book. I love that Kingsbury was able to conviegh a beautiful Christian message in a sweet believeable story.....Just PUSH.....Pray Until Something Happens!

Love the continuing Baxter story

Loved the book! I've listened to all the previous books, so it took awhile to adjust to having multiple narrators. It wasn't a bad thing, but occasionally it felt a bit awkward.

Intended for College-Age kids

Great story and message. Book is written more for college age students, which is great, but disappointed I wasn't aware of it prior to my purchase of both books thru Audible.

Story Good but Narrators Lack Finesse

I love Karen Kingsbury, but I have to say I was disappointed with the quality of this narration. In particular one female narrator was quite poor and stilted which is very unfortunate because KK is an excellent author.
