Reviews - What do customers think about Not a Sparrow Falls?

mlromero  Mar 26, 2007
I was given this book as a Christmas present. I recently found time to read it and was very surprised at how fasinating I found it. I felt the characters were very real and I was sad when the book ended. Believe me, the things Linda Nichols wrote about in this book does happen in real life. This is not "hard to believe" fiction!! If you want a good read, this is it. I will definitely read more of Nichols' books.
If depressed, don't read this book!  Feb 24, 2007
I did not like this book at all. I thought everything was far fetched. I can't imagine real people living like this. It certainly did not inspire my faith one iota. I read it for book club and most of the women in the group enjoyed the book, but felt the situations were all a little contrived. No other reviewer has mentioned the fact that the mother kills herself in the book. How can that make it a great book? Of course that part of the book was very realistic. I must be honest and say that I was very depressed after losing my mother very suddenly, so I read the book with a heavy heart. I loved Ms. Nichols book "At the Scent of Water" and have sent my copy to friends out of state. Therefore, I know she is a great writer. This one just didn't do it for me.
A great read  Jun 9, 2006
I picked up this book while out of state and finished most of it on a four-hour flight. The storyline was riveting, the characters concise and the dialogue believable. It seemed to me that some of the issues in the book were brushed over somewhat, but not every book delves into the deep issues of humanity. The ending was rather "happily ever after" but don't we all like to read a book that ends that way every now and then? Over all, a great read.
More Fantasy than real life  Apr 17, 2006
I read Nichols' If I Gained the World a couple years ago, and that's why I wanted to read this one. The beginning started strong, with the old lady praying, but then it switched viewpoint, and switched, and switched...until I didn't really know what story I was following and who to care about. I ended up not really caring about anyone at all, just observing as I read. It was hard to get into it, and still halfway through, I wanted to give put it away. I skimmed a couple chapters until it came close to the end again.

The storyline itself has potential; young girl goes wrong and wants another chance. Some parts were good, but it took me awhile and a bit of patience to find them. The symbolism of the Sparrow was a nice touch too. However, I found it hard to believe that Bridie could go from the meth world into a nanny position so quickly and easily. She was too perfect at it, almost Marry Poppins-like. There wasn't a lot of struggle with the lifestyle change, only the guilty conscience. The end was too tidy, and IMO did not deliver the building suspense that it seemed to be leading to. It was a bit anti-climatic, and then everyone lived happily ever after.

For the Christian audience, I know that many will just love this story of faith and redemption, which is the target audience. So I give it a few stars for meeting that audience. But for an overall story, I was disappointed.
Outstanding !!!!!!!  Feb 17, 2006
This is the first novel I have read by Linda Nichols.....I plan on reading all of them now. This story captured my heart from the first chapter. I felt for all of the characters in the book and it left me with a warm heart when I finished. Do yourself a favor -- read it and ENJOY !!!!!!
