    One thought on “The Quest”

    1. I won a copy of this book on , and was excited to read it - the premise sounded interesting: a young girl (age 23) gets a call from her Stepmom that her father is missing in Isreal. She decides to go there and team up with her Stepmom to try to find her dad.It was obvious to me when the book arrived that it was a Christian book. I'm ok with that. I believe in God, and consider myself to be open minded, even though Buddha is my homeboy. Where the book completely lost me however was when Emma (mai [...]

    2. I won this book in First Reads.I did not read the part about this book being part of a outreach christian group with reading the details of the entry. Reading is fundamental.The Quest seems like a good read for those who are into Christian types of books. Though I am of no domination, I tend to like books with a little spiritual enlightenment. I can see how this book can create that for some people. Re-establishing their faith. Now, don't go getting upset. Not that I do not have faith nor belie [...]

    3. I was so excite to receive The Quest: A Novel by Sean McDowell and Bob Hostetler. It was my first win on first reads.I was thoroughly engrossed in Emma's character. She's a typical college-aged girl who has typical emotions as wonderfully displayed in the book. I would have liked to have learned more about her attachment the the two boys, though. Emma's relationships could have been developed a little more fully.KaytaI loved how you got to know her through her diary entries even though you have [...]

    4. I won this book in a giveaway and so was very excited to get it and read it. However, it soon became apparent why this book needs to be given away. The plot seemed okay but the writing style was too simplistic. I felt I was being talked down to all the time; nothing was left to me to imagine or to fill in. One of the main characters, Emma, was constantly sneering at anything having to do with religion or God. She made snide comments often, to the point where she would tune out "God talk", yet t [...]

    5. The free PDF of this novel has sat on my hard drive for at least a year or two, with me not even giving it a lookuntil yesterday, when it captivated me almost from the first page. Great story, wonderful characters, good writingwhat's not to like?

    6. I won this book from GoodReads and i have to say after reading it it was a very good book. I liked how it talked about things and brought things up and how it explained things.
