Book Review #891
Hear No Evil by Matthew Paul Turner
Rating: two stars (out of four)
This was an intriguing novel. I liked the concept and how Matthew kept the stories flowing together and made everything fluid. Some of the elements of his life I could totally relate to: I grew up with certain music that was off limits but it was different to see modern music under the label "christian" was off limits for him. It was an interesting twist to see a different viewpoint from such a conservative stance and how Matthew slowly overcame this and developed his own set of beliefs about music. This was a good and quick read. I enjoyed it and found several parts of it humorous. The ending was a little bit of a letdown and I'm not sure if I entirely got the point, but I would probably still recommend it.
