I bought this to listen with my son on a long drive to a campout and was totally blown away by how engrossing and interesting the story proved to be. We've been listening to a chapter every few nights since getting home and I've been inspired by the life and dedication of the main character. I didn't know much about missionary work in Communist Eastern Europe, Russia, and China. This was eye opening. But it's truly the dedication to God of the main character that was the most inspirational thing. The narration is also quite good and engaging. Highly recommended!
