Review: This is a little bit different than the usual entertainment I consume; therefore, this review will be different as well. Not only was the "audio drama" very well-produced--seriously, it sounded amazing on my headphones; I can only imagine how it amazing it would be on surround sound--but the story brings home a point that I have needed to hear for quite a while now. I've always found it difficult to forgive others; instead of wanting to let people's wrongs go, I've always wanted them to suffer dearly, no matter what they had done. When I listened Corrie and Betsie were wronged in ways I've never been, yet they were still willing to offer their forgiveness, that really "cut me to the heart".
Content Concerns: As with the book, this is a good story, but it's a bit too intense for children. The emotional scenes, as well as the sound effects that imply violence, could freak some kids out. The terms "wench" and "shut up" are used.
