  1. Sometimes with a story you end up with than you expect I picked this book up from the library with a cursory glance thinking it might be okay but it could just as easily end up one I would not read Later, looking for a book to read I picked it up From the prologue I was hooked I wanted to know who this woman was seeking confession from an old friend and priest It was obvious she was troubled and had plans to put an end to her troubles and her life Then I turned to the next chapter and fell in l [...]

  2. I lost myself in this book It was an interesting, unique concept for a story line, and the character development was superb one of the things I appreciate so much about Charles Martin s writing I grew to love each one of the characters, and I was sad when the book ended and immediately began to miss them The one negative thing that I might say is that for being such a redemptive book, there is really so little talk of the Redeemer Steady, the Catholic priest, certainly personified Christ, but ev [...]

  4. An avid Charles Martin fan, I was somewhat disappointed in this novel It is predictable and filled with repetitions phrases and character tics like the spittle forming in the corner of one s mouth I guess that is Martin s new favorite characteristic Although this novel does not carry the same literary merit as his earlier works for example, _When Crickets Cry_ , it s not an awful book just not what I consider Martin s typical genius The whole strong silent man saves mysterious woman in distress [...]

  7. Im at page 64 will i finish this book Only in the beginning and I already know it s not worth it Full of non realistic situations with simplistic drama that has no common sense and been written in million other books, bad Harlequins novels included PLOT for the first 5 chapters The ultra rich star hires, through her army of lawyers, a writer for her autobiography to tell her miserable story And the guy runs away with the story and sell it himself making Oprah Pleeeaaaze if J.LO was selling her s [...]

  8. This was my third book by Charles Martin and my last The first was The Mountain Between Us which was a survivalist story set in the snow covered mountains of Wyoming I think There was a plane crash, the soon to be girl friend had a broken leg and how in the world was our hero going to survive and later take himself and his soon to be lover out of the mountains Of course, we had the requisite blizzard and avalanche and wild animals But at just the last minute a cabin would appear and shock there [...]

  9. Charles Martin is among my top 10 favorite authors I can trust just about anything he writes to utterly captivate me His stories go deep, clear to the bone, and then they go winging back into the sunshine Ahhh.It s impressive when an author can make me identify with two people so NOT like me A thrown away kid who stumbles into writing An ugly duckling who reaches the heights of fame Somehow I understood what they were feeling, had a clear view of their agony, and understood that longing to just [...]

  10. Why did I keep reading this book I had so many negative opinions as compared to all the positive reviews I started to suspect maybe the fault lay with me and not the book And so I kept on reading My irritation only grew I was thinking a cross between melodrama and pathos Then I coined a new word, Meglo drama Even the spittle at the corner of his Steady s lips suggested to me he was really a maniac rather than a saint with no failures to his name When I reached the end of the book to Afterword Do [...]

  11. I m not someone who makes time for fiction, but I wanted to get lost in a story to take my mind off of some of my own problems It s be than 8 years since I read fiction and I m glad I picked this one up It s an intense emotional story that held my interest completely It s the first book I ve read from Charles Martin and I will be getting a couple soon.

  12. Such a great read Emotions ran high Heart entirely engaged.Recommended ParisinJuly challenge 2017 anticipaaation

  13. Loaned to me by a friend I really like Charles Martin s writing However, this story did not resonate with me I found it to be too contrived to tug at heartstrings, filled with dead and dying kids, talented people who attempt suicide because their lives are so broken in short, I was surprised there weren t abused puppies and kittens to further jerk the tears Like Max Lucado, another talented writer who seems to be a true man of God, Martin has filled this tale with too much hyperbole, too much sa [...]

  14. Beautiful prose and intense drama combine to make Unwritten one of the most moving stories I have read this year More than once I found myself brushing away tears as Martin brought to life the wonderful characters of Katie, Steady, and Sunday, characters who have left a permanent imprint upon my mind Their transformation from places of deep pain and even self loathing, to ones of hope and healing, is simply mesmerizing to watch When I first read the back of this book describing the story, I was [...]

  15. This is the best novel I have read this year and maybe the best in years Charles Martin is a great writer Even the Reading Group Guide which I usually do not enjoy was top notch The book examines the subject of forgiveness like I have never seen The question and answer section with the author at the end of the book is very interesting I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys novels Below find one quote from the book that I trust will encourage you to read the book Of the six million spe [...]

  16. Unwritten was the most beautiful story with a mixture of solitude to the exotic flair From culture, history, travel, to fishing and rustic life from pain to happiness and joy I have read all Charles Martin s books and this one ranks a 10 From the characters you will grow to love and connect with as their past hidden secrets unfold along with their pain keeping you engrossed from the first page to the last Savor each moment this would make an awesome movie can already envision the cast of stars S [...]

  17. Although I initially gave this a 5 star rating, in hindsight I ve decided to downgrade it to 4 stars as I wouldn t recommend it as a must read but Wow For a book that did little to engage me until I was at least half way through, this little well written story packs a powerful punch A real arrow through the heart in so many ways I loved it

  18. This novel about a hermetic writer turned fisherman and a suicidal actress was not entirely my favorite read.The characters themselves were sort of cliche 40 year old male virgin, lady duck who becomes a swan actress, bets between school boys about who can sleep with the dorky girl who mistakenly thinks they love her, and just the general repeated rescuing of the damsel in distress who in turn rescues the hero at the end Certainly some of these are classic themes, rather than cliche, but not the [...]

  19. When you start to wonder what characters in a novel would think of your review of them, that s when you know you ve got yourself a winner It s all so unbelievable, but the author makes you believe it all anyway.Charles Martin s novel, Unwritten, is so jam packed with action, adventure, and absolute deliciousness, that I literally couldn t put it down I read it in just two sittings Although it is filled with boat crashes, flames, suicidal attempts, and other explosive events, it is also a tender [...]

  20. If I had read what this book was about before starting to read, I may not have read it Luckily for me I did read it and I really enjoyed this novel For once, there is no swearing, no sex scenes, and no unlikable characters There are actually 3 protagonists in this story One is a very popular 3 time academy award winning actress, one a prolific author named Sunday who becomes a hermit, and one an elderly Catholic priest named Steady who loves the other two in a friendship that equals no other.The [...]

  21. There are certain life events that cut to the bone, pulverize our souls, and shatter our hearts into a million jagged pieces Male or female, young or old, we all have breaking points Traumatizing events and affecting responses differs from person to person that which paralyzes one person might be just a speed bump for someone else However, no matter the trigger, pain and regret are universal battles to all In which sometimes the wounds are so deep, so intimate, so core shattering, one contemplat [...]

  22. Couldn t put this book down Great story line and such realistic, relatable characters I truly was transported Loved Steady, Katie and Sunday I didn t love the ending though The two main characters basically ended up back where they started after hitting and staying at rock bottom the entire book Would have thought they d have moved on and stayed out of the limelight that destroyed them both to begin with Also didn t find it believable that Steady, the 84 year old priest, would smack Sunday aroun [...]

  23. I originally wanted to read The Mountain Between Us by Charles Martin However, the search for it in the 5 bookstores near our home was not fruitful, but because I just absolutely hate it when I have no spoils from book heaven, I thought I d give this other Charles Martin piece a shot I was glad I did Of the six million species on the planet, only man makes language Words What s in evidence of the Divine we string symbols together and then write them down, where they take on a life of their own [...]

  24. Another clean, quick romance I ve only read one other of his It was enjoyable and kept me reading my main issue is the same as his other book that I read everything is very convenient Really, they are both gazillionaires who started out as cross eyed, stuttering nobodies, faked their own deaths, and were rescued by the same old priest namedwait for itSteady Not what I would call realistic, but hey, it s only meant to be a fluffy romance and a nice way to pass an afternoon.

  25. I really enjoy Charles Martin s writing style, but that being said, this wasn t my favorite of his As my friend, Katie said, it s very Convenient I also found myself thinking several times throughout the novel REALLY SERIOUSLY It was so very unbelievable that both of the main characters were once famous people who faked their own suicides.All that aside, Maritn still provided a clean, fun read Nothing mind blowing, but it was ok.

  26. I would put Charles Martin in a class of character writers his characters really come to life A world famous actress is running from her life when she meets a hermit of a man hiding from his future They come together to write a new life Is it possible to start over Is she sure they have nothing in common I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it.

  27. Two wildly famous people fake their own deaths in an effort to move out of the limelight, and this is their story It is layered, emotional, and shows again the artistry of Charles Martin If you are involved in publishing, make sure you read the Afterword.

  28. Not a good read in my opinion Started out good but then became almost ridiculous and ended with a thud Read like a soap opera.

  29. I picked up this book for 0.50 at a tag sale and brought it along on a beach vacation as it sounded interesting and perhaps not so taxing a read I got much than I bargained for This is a beautifully written book with well developed characters and a compelling story line It grabbed me from the first few pages and kept me engaged until the end Will be looking for books from this author.
