I, Saul by Jerry B Jenkins and James MacDonald rates 2 out of 5 stars

I, SaulI, Saul by Jerry B Jenkins
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I so wanted to like this book. I've read other biblical fiction and thoroughly enjoyed it, for example. Daughter of Jerusalem: a novel was 5 stars and one of the best biblical books I've ever read.

I, Saul was painful to read, had to keep forcing myself along. I kept pushing myself to see if it would improve, see if the teasers came true. None did. All the characters had the same voice and were predictable with their actions, or lack of actions. There was a decided lack of emotion and the characters were not developed well.

Normally I stop reading at 50-100 pages if I'm not captivated by the story, but I pushed myself to continue reading this one. I had high hopes that it would get better and it did not.
