I just finished listening to the audio book A Life Intercepted: A Novel by Charles Martin. I’ve long been a Charles Martin fan so when I saw the book, I immediately put a hold on it.
If you like Nicholas Sparks, you’d likely enjoy a book by Charles Martin as well. Both have similar writing styles…I think I like Martin a better though.
Anyway, this book has lots of football references in it but if you aren’t a football fan, it’s not a big deal, the story is still good and still moving. I found myself making excuses and squeezing time in so that I could listen more. That’s when I know I have a book that I am really enjoying. This one was it. After the story is over there is a personal afterward from the author and I very much enjoyed reading that and getting a glimpse of the author’s personal life and what happened in his own life that inspired him to read the book.
Here is what Amazon had to say about it, “Twelve years ago Matthew “the Rocket” Rising had it all. Married to his high school sweetheart and one of the winningest quarterbacks in the history of college football, he was the number one NFL draft pick. But on the night of the draft, he plummeted from the pinnacle of esteem. Falsely accused of a heinous crime with irrefutable evidence, it seemed in an instant all was lost–his reputation, his career, his freedom, and most devastatingly, the love of his life.
At the writing of this review I found that he has a new book out. I quickly found myself at Audible and have started it as well. Watch for the review to be coming soon because once again, I am finding myself sneaking time to listen. Are there any other Charles Martin fans out there??
