Summary

Have you lost hope in anything? Do you feel rejected? Are you desperate? The story of Nimo in Abandoned Child highlights some of the ways God gives hope to the hopeless and sets them on a pedestal of success.

According to his townspeople, Nimo, a boy, has a bad destiny that he will oppose their ancestral worship and make people turn away from it. Thus, the townspeople consider him an outcast and tie him to a tree in a forest to be devoured by a wild animal or die of hunger to prevent him from fulfilling his destiny. While he cries for rescue amid singing a song which glorifies God, a lion goes to him. But the moment the lion stretches its forelegs to devour him, terrific lightning and thunder strike repeatedly and frighten it, so it runs away from him. But at the same time, the lightning and thunder wakes up a chimpanzee which is asleep on the top of the tree. Sensing danger, the chimpanzee climbs down the tree for safety and when it sees Nimo, it goes to destroy the thread which has been used to tie him without harming him to set him free.

Does not make much sense

Abandoned Child does not make sense the elders are speaking for the Gods without consulting them to kill a child. I understand the concept but the language does not stay in one time period and because of this it makes it hard to get into. The narration sounds to computer like. I received this review copy at my request and I am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

Sorry not for me

Abandoned Child
Bill Vincent

I don't know if I was in a wrong mindset when I listened to this book, but I found it irritating. I understand the concept, but it just didn't seem like the author could stay in one setting. The language jumped from contemporary to ancient and back and forth, without any explanation.
I maybe wrong but this feels like someone that is not a native English speaker, wrote this. I'm sorry, but this just was not for me.



The narration was unremarkable. Zion Recording's recording sounded tinny.
