First Order Questions in the Thick of Life
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes. Believable characters in real world circumstances asking first-order questions about life and living (Is this all there is? Why are we here? Is there a God? Is God loving? If yes, why is there so much suffering/evil?) These questions aren't asked in the midst of sorta-bad or almost-bad circumstances. They are asked in the midst of murder, political corruption, investigative reporting, serious illness, and a bomb blowing up an innocent.The settings and circumstances are real. The characters are believable. The narrative is suspenseful and held my interest. I wanted to punch some of the characters and cry with others. The questions are asked in the midst of all of the above; possible answers are given, but in the end, the reader is left to decide for themselves.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Ambition?
There are several, but I don't want to give any spoilers. In one, I dropped my jaw and wanted to yell at the offensive character, the pastor's political assistant, and cheer the offended character's reaction, the pastor's wife.
Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favorite?
Strider - the investigative reporter. He's the total skeptic interested in truth and reality. He gets to ask the tough questions and stuff a few things in the pastor's face.
