Reviews - What do customers think about Quiet Thunder (Journeys of the Stranger)?
Not like the others Jul 14, 2008
I'm not usually the type to read a book unless it keeps my interest. This one did keep my interest, but just barely. This book is nothing like the others, in that this story only barely involves the Stranger. While the others in the series often spend some time developing characters before Stranger shows up, Stranger gets a lot of 'face time' in those books. This one gets deep into the book before he shows up... and he's only there for a page or two. Then, you have to wait again to nearly the end before he shows up again... and again, only for a few pages. I guess what I mean by different is, while the other books are about the "Journey's of the Stranger", this one is about the lives of these people, and how Strangers short visits have impacted their lives.
Also, this book makes heavy use of real historical people. Although this is a novel (ie. fiction), it makes me wonder how much truth the author has put in it too, as I get the impression he is very well read on this subject. That said, I wouldn't rely on it as history. I mean, remember that novel (fiction) that Dan Brown wrote that so many thought was based on real history? :O)
