Review: The Ear, The Eye and The Arm

User Review  - michelle - Christianbook.com

I loved this book as I do many of the author's books. I checked this book out at the library. I was surprised to see it here at CBD. There is not much for Christian growth and development in this reading. It is a good secular book, though. Read full review

User Review  - Otaku Cutie - Borders

I was deep in this book when I read it. An excellent novel! It takes place in a very futuristic Zimbabwe, centered around a few main characters. It is funny, spectacular, and overly readable. The book's contents are consumed quickly, and are satisfying. Read full review
