2 thumbs up!
read this twice already! loved this story, loved the plot and kept me reading until I reached the end! I do wonder if there will be a sequel?
great book! I Repent has a awesome message. This story is a wonderful love story with a twist! I enjoyed the read, the story kept you interested and wanting more. I hope there is a sequel to this, Loved it!
Great book written for ordinary, simple people! Fact is everyone wouldn't appreciate or get the message if the writer had not wrote in a voice for the character and or audience that the book was chosen for. I give this book five stars because it has changed my life and allowed me (through simple writing) to get a message of Christ that I may not have gotten otherwise. Continue to write for your audience lady!
good suspenseful book! I enjoyed it, my friends did too.
I Repent by Renea Collins is a great book due to its godly message. A woman is taken through hell and back because of her abusive relationships and she realizes she must trust in a God who never forsook her. The message alone is great. Good job. I did have a few problems with the writing and editing. It could’ve been executed and written better. A good editor would’ve noticed the redundancy in the book and corrected it. A good editor would’ve challenged the writer to write on a higher reading level and not a ninth grade level. I expect this from a teen author but not one meant for adults. The writer needs to take writing classes so that they’d learn to write at a college level, using bigger words, connecting sentences to make them longer, create beautiful imagery, and add a nice tone to the book. It was simple. For example. Instead of saying, “I ate a good apple.” Say, “The apple that I devoured was delectable.” Instead of saying, “I was in a bad mood.” Say, “My mood was tarnished by a series of unfortunate events.” It makes all the difference. Here is an example of the redundancy froma paragraph I pulled from the novel: “Not to mention he had become a control freak. He was never pleased with anything I did. I was always incompetent in his eyes. Nothing I did was good enough for him. I felt like I was in a prison cell in my own house when he was there. I couldn’t cook right, I had a funny look on my face, something was always wrong in Julius’s eyes. We could never be at peace.” That is an example of poor editing. They should’ve made her say: “Not to mention, he had become a control freak, making me feel incompetent when he’d criticize my cooking, facial expressions, or anything else that was wrong or unpleasing in his eyes. I was never at peace because I felt like a prisoner in my own house; these four walls became my cell.” See how I cleaned the sentence up? Doesn’t sound so redundant now does it? Author, if you’re reading this, please just take notes. If you’re serious about your writing career, take workshops to improve your writing. It can make your 4 star book a 5 star book.
