Almost as if a ghost writer has taken a well-worn template and the end product is blurred and not quite as good as it should be. Apart from that, there are some things to think about here, but with an author as prolific as Evans, he's bound to have a miss once in awhile, especially if trying to produce on schedule.

I am a big fan of Richard Paul Evans and was thrilled to see that he has started a new series. As with other multi-book sets, this one is a powerful story. Evans excels in telling the story of the individual who has hit rock bottom and searches for redemption. These are the stories that speak to our own human spirit and we cannot deny a connection to the characters in his stories. Who of us does not have guilt about a watershed decision made at some point in our past? There but for the grace of God. . . Definitely one of the best books I have read this summer. Looking forward to the next installment!

I won't say I "enjoyed" this book/story. It wasn't that kind of book. I think it's meant to be more thought-provoking than entertaining. It was what I expected from this author and I'm sure I will read his subseqent books in this series.

I agree with reads A Lot comments. I enjoyed it like I do all of his books however there seems a familiar theme going through. I'm anxious to read Book 2 & 3 when they come out. I finished the book in about six hours. They are easy to read and that's enjoyable.

Author was very slow in getting to the point. Usually you are drawn from the first page, not this time. The characters were not engaging. Book was weird. Came back to it 3 times and it was not my cup of tea. Hope he gets his act together or I will not read his books

have read his other books and liked them but this book was a huge disappointment and I could not even finish it.

Call me a sentimentalist but I'm a huge Richard Paul Evans fan. Thus when I say "The Broken Road" is just above average I'm speaking comparitively. I would have to say this book is kind of like the Walk Series (starting out with mention of a walk on Route 66) but not as good.
Having said that, I must confess by the time the book ended the author had me hooked and I can't wait for the next book in the trilogy that this book is a part of. (The Forgotten Road.)

Disappointed to give this just an average rating. RPE is one of my favorite authors and I look forward to his books. However, for some reason this book and his last Christmas book haven't affected me the way his previous books have. I'm trying to figure out if it's me or him that's changed. This book has a good storyline, but it didn't make me feel anything. It was like I was reading a newspaper article. Has his writing declined or have I just outgrown him? Is the formula he follows getting too stale? Not sure, but not ready to give up on him just yet. I'll read his next one hoping to get that old feeling back.
