Reviews - What do customers think about Charade?

yes, it was good but...  Aug 23, 2006
I never really connected with the characters. It seemed to me this was a hastily written book, and unlike other Morris books I've read, I found several obvious mistakes. Plus Morris repeated lines several times, as if each time he was writing it for the first time. I thought the ending was trite and quick, and what promised to be exciting, the whole revenge thing, was pretty much summed up in a few chapters. Sometimes books are subtly witnessing, but this one turned into a sermon! Not his best.
A fun Christian novel  Oct 24, 2005
Ollie Benson is an extremely overweight man who spends his days fixing computers in the back of a repair shop. He has no luck with women, and one blind date he goes on ends in an embarrassing manner. Ollie has no self esteem and no proper social skills. Ollie is also very smart and hits it big with a computer program that overnight makes him a millionaire. Dane Fetterman contacts Ollie with hopes of representing him in the fast paced software industry. While Ollie is rich he is still lonely. Then he meets Marlene, a beautiful woman who loves him for who he is. Soon tragedy strikes and Ollie is destroyed. Will Ollie choose the worldy way and seek vengeance on those who wronged him, or will God intervene with Ollie's soul and allow him to forgive those who wronged him?

Charade is the fast paced new novel from Gilbert Morris. It is told in a quick, first-person point of view. The plot moves fast and never bogs down. It seems Morris knew the scenario he wanted to set up for the ending of his novel, so some of the plot devices he uses as part of Ollie's downfall seem a little farfetched, but it doesn't really detract from the story. Morris creates a world of people who have tons of money but lack in what really matters, God and morals. These people have everything but are always searching for more. I enjoyed his realist portrayal of sexuality in a Christian novel. Its nice to see an author acknowledge that sexual attract can exist in moral people.

Morris' religious message is simple and isn't forced and the conclusion is quite predictable. I enjoyed this novel from beginning to end, in spite of Morris's implication the the Sierra Club is a worthwhile charity for Christians. In my opinion, while the Sierra Club might have lofty goals, they are in reality a left wing political organization that does more harm than good. Morris should leave politics out of future novels.
Sweet Revenge...with a Twist!!!  May 5, 2005
If you ever felt betrayed this book will captivate you. And revenge? Yes it's in here...but you won't believe how it unravels. Gilbert Morris is dynamite when he puts his mind to the pen and paper. What a classic, unique twist from all the other fiction books I have read out there. It was a page turner let me tell you, another book you won't be able to put down.
