Nice but predictable
I am not sure, I think after having heard this one I do not need to hear the others since I knew how it would end after the first few minutes. It was just one straight line with a new obstacle put in every now and then so it would not end too soon.
I read another book that was set in Amish culture and I liked the thoughts about God it transported and how people dealt with problems in a completely different world than mine.
In this book however I get to dislike the Amish a lot. How can they on the one hand be so focussed on their own perfection taking the Bible so literally that they live in an ancient culture yet not consider verses such as the Great Commision or to care for everyone alike, even outsiders. And it really upset me that someone in the book digs things in the ground that will make it toxic and no plants growing on it for years but does not think about that at all just because they want to get rid of personal items.
All the voices sound very childlike, especially the women and it is kind of strange that I do not understand the German words although I am German. "Danke" (thank you) sounds like "Donkey". That is very irritating with people saying it to each other all the time.
I think it would be a typical TV series - you know the outcome but there are easily separatable obstacles to overcome before that. Once one is solved the next arises.
It is good if you want to hear the story of someone trying to leave their past behind yet I find it too simplistic and sometimes plain perfect becomes plain stupid.
