Awesome

I loved this book. I love the way Beverly Lewis changes from one story to another just long enough to keep you wanting to know what happens next.

Pretty good story - not really my genre

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I liked this peek into what life in an Amish community might be like. This is the first time I have read or listened to a romance novel and I wasn't totally into it, but I did enjoy it. The story was well told and well narrated.

Would you ever listen to anything by Beverly Lewis again?

No. As I said, it just wasn't my kind of book, but it was on sale and I thought I would give it a try.

Which scene was your favorite?

I enjoyed when Rose finally met up with her long-lost boyfriend who had been shunned by the People.

Did The Judgment inspire you to do anything?

No.

An Odd Listen For An Old Man

The Judgment by Beverly Lewis was a very odd listen for me. I bought it as a daily special on Audible. I felt a little embarrassed when I realized that young adult females who are devout Christians were the target audience. As a senior male, I still found the simple story with minimal conflict interesting because decorated the story with peaks into the rich Amish culture of Lancaster county, Pennsylvania. The Judgment is the second installment in the Rose trilogy, named for main character and narrator of the story. I may just get the first and third installments to see how much more I can learn about the Amish. Afterwards I can give them to my first granddaughter when I am blessed with one.

Slow storyline

Again, like the first in the series, the second book moves slowly and everything happens at the end. I found myself waiting for the storyline to move forward. If I didn't work while listening, I would have been bored. However, the themes did cause me to contemplate and ask questions. The dominating themes being God's goodness and His sovereignty. I find the lack of any mention of Jesus in these "christian" books to be concerning. Christina Moore's take on Nick sounds like a stoned surfer dude, but he is hardly in this book so it's not too much of a problem. In short, I've invested too much time and thought to not finish the series. Definitely not Beverly Lewis' best series.

EXCELLENT

Book 2 is every bit as good as Book 1. I'm anxious to read book 3 and see how everything turns out!

Storyline drew out far too long

I felt like the storyline surrounding Hen and Brandon's marriage drew out far too long. I was beginning to lose interest.

Amish Marital Problems

What would have made The Judgment better?

A better plot. Having an Amish women wanting to be separated or divorced from her husband because he wants to watch TV in front of their daughter is a ridiculous premise for a story.This plot was one that most people can not relate to. With some of the plot points, one would have to be Amish to relate to it. The plot was sappy sweet and predictable. Also, the characters are not real likable and not well developed

What do you think your next listen will be?

I doubt any book in this series. Maybe a classic like Moby Dick.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The reader had a mellow voice. There was little emotional content in the reading. It reminded my of listening to a sermon just before you go to sleep in church.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Judgment?

I would have cut of the dialogue about the TV out of the story.

Any additional comments?

This story would be better if the audience could relate story and its chacteracters.
