    This Rock is founded upon flawed people.

    I admit to stumbling upon this little gem as a book on CD from the bargain rack. I was facing a long business trip by car and thought it looked at least interesting. It is a little more religiously driven than expectd, and in the beginning it seemed pretty predictable, and some of it is. However I found it to be an interesting twist on a Cain and Able relationship of 2 brothers -as dissimilar as their Biblical models, who work at odds with each other as the younger brother tries to build a new mountaintop church, at the bidding of God, and the elder works to destroy any good in his life with fast living. But the lines of Good and Bad are not so clear cut as you might imagine. And while the end may be a bit predictable, the route to it is as full of twists and turns as the road to the hilltop where the stone church is to built. I think a religious Book Club would especially love this! The book was read by Rosemary Alexander and Robert Clotworthy, both of excellent interpretive skills.

    I liked this book until the last page.....

    This book is actually good until the last page.......(Either that or I got a book with the last few chapters missing.) Reading 'This Rock' is like watching a Saturday Night Live Sketch. It's good but the writers have no idea how to end it, so they just stop! There is no end to this story. It just stops! I honestly thought I had a misprinted book missing several pages! While reading it, I kept thinking, 'Wow, what a good book.' Then I read the last page and thought, 'Wow, I couldn't recommend this to anyone.' Who wants to read 360 pages and find there's no end to the story.

    Two Brothers, Hard Life

    The first book that I read by Robert Morgan was Gap Creek. When I saw This Rock I snapped it up, partly because I so enjoyed Gap Creek. I wan't disappointed. Two brothers struggle to survive a hard and demanding life. One, the youngest, Muir, is a builder. Muir seems bound to serve the word and his God by preaching. The other, Moody seems bent on self destruction. Moody is happiest when running moonshine and making a quick buck. Moody suffers from some deep hurt we are never told about. Hank and Julia make an appearance from Gap Creek and it is refreshing to see that they are making headway. Ginny, Muir and Moody's mother is a strong character. She struggles to raise two boys and a daughter on her own after the death of her husband. Enough of that. Suffice it to say that if you're looking for a techno thriller or a cheesy romance novel you won't like this book. If you want to be move emotionally and intellectually then you need to read this book.

    Incredible book

    This is the type of book you want to continue reading, but not too fast, as you don't want it to end. These characters are so real you feel like you know them. Must read GAP Creek first and then the Truest Pleasure. This is a continuation of Truest Pleasure. Both are highly recommended.
