  • Excellent This was the first word that came to my mind when I finished Granted this book really isn t for everybody It s geared towards middle school aged boys, but I can say at least in my case it didn t lessen my enjoyment of the book I should also mention that this is really a book for people who already are LDS members Of course you can read it if your aren t but I doubt that it would be as entertaining A lot of the funny moments wouldn t make sense and it s always a shame not to get a good [...]


  • My fourth time listening to this book as we did it for our book club this month all the other women who read it also liked it so I ll be starting the series again I usually do every few years so since it s been 1 1 2 years I can t read them any because they re too addicting Listening I still can clean and do things Here s my review before if anyone s interested You have to read this series VERY ADDICTING After staying up all night to read the first three in a few days time I had to get the rest [...]



  • My wife loves these books so I thought I would give them a try I have to admit that I have always thought that Mormon fiction was a little weird The author uses a lot of creative liberty to make the characters in the Book of Mormon come to life I am not sure how I feel about that, I am pretty sure if we needed to know about their personal lives Mormon would have added it to the plates Heimerdinger also sneaks in his personal viewpoints on different subjects, for example, when girls should start [...]



  • I ve started reading this book several.times and found it so boring I couldn t continue it My dad and I went on a road trip and we listened to the novel on tape We skipped the first CD because neither of us wanted to listen to it again.The part of the Book of Mormon this story retells is full of intrigue and scandal if you are unfamiliar with those events, this book is likely going to be really, really confusing This novel puts a lot of thought into imagining what life was like in mesoamerica as [...]


  • This book was highly recommended to me with no doubt that I would really like it, and I did It is a story about a Mormon boy named Jim who is making a hard time for himself, hanging out with the wrong friends and such That is until he meets and hangs out with Garth who is almost the exact opposite of him Garth being studious, openly friendly, and patient The two, along with Jim s sister, are somehow transported into a different place and time as the cover suggests its back in the time of the Nep [...]


  • I absolutely love this series I have read them several times and I never get bored with the story The narration is both humorous and adventurous at the same time I haven t read these since before I was in college and my advanced literary eye noticed some things this most recent reading Heimerdinger has a great voice It s as if the main character is your friend talking to you about his adventures, rather than you reading a narrative Heimerdinger s story concepts are original, but I feel the endi [...]


  • This was MUCH better than I thought it was going to be I had avoided it for years because it looked like horrible Mormon fiction The story is mostly well done, and I loved the little politics and bringing to life of Nephite life The 2nd book was pretty over the top and unrealistic As in characters acting cheesy and stupid not as in time traveling Book of Mormon characters So I don t know if I ll continue reading after Silver Sword.



  • I read this aloud to my kids MD gave it 4 stars, CN 4 and MK 3.5 I gave it 4 stars All three kids loved the story, but were frustrated with the ending They really wanted it to be a true story.


  • The book Tennis Shoes Among the Nephites, by Chris Heimerdinger, is about the main boy, Jamie, called Jim, who becomes friends with Garth when Jim s sister Jennifer follows them into a cave, back in time The boys are twelve or thirteen years old, and Jennifer is ten or eleven In the land they travel to, they got captured, and were saved by a nice group of people to take care of them Jennifer was separated from the boys, and the boys became translaters for all the people I gave this book five sta [...]


  • I can t believe I am just now reading this book to my kids, Jayden got it six years ago for his baptism and it s just been collecting dust So we pulled out the CDs while driving through Utah and started the adventure Great fictional version of true beloved Book of Mormon stories kids can t wait to start the next one


  • So I ve read this entire series, a long time ago, and I remembered that this first book was my favorite It didn t disappoint as a selection to listen to in the car on our vacation My family loved it, and I enjoyed hearing little bits of Jim s wit and commentary that I hadn t remembered Some CDs are terrible when the author reads his own work, but that wasn t the case with this one.


  • I guessed the day I read this I think it was my junior year I believe I read most of the series I relaly enjoyed these books When i read the scriptures, i would incorporate the stories and imagine what i had imagined while reading the books It really helped to keep me interested in the scriptures It was pretty silly when the kids that i babysat were reading the same book.


  • Not as good as I remembered, but since I read it the first time about 20 years ago, it doesn t surprise me that I am critical of it as an adult reader The ending felt abrupt and too convenient for the characters But, that being said, I still enjoyed it A good book to read while I feed the baby.


  • just read it again I loved it 9 years ago when I first read it and loved it again this time P.S Let me know if anyone has a copy of the other books in the series I only got to book 5 last time but want to read them all again and the rest.


  • just started reading it haha i noticed that you are too, brianne its kinda weird i guessi m not that far into it, though I just hope that Jamie Jim, whatever doesn t tell somebody about the picture






  • I listened to this with my Ovard grandchildren on a trip They loved it, for which I m glad I thought it was ok.


  • When Jim, Garth, and Jenny all go explore a cave said to hold a mystical room, they actually find it Only to their dismay, Jenny falls to the river at the base of the waterfall in the cave Jim, not willing to watch his sister drown alone jumps in after her, followed closely by Garth When they all wake up they find themselves in Book of Mormon America They have mighty adventures being captured by Lamanites, rescued by Nephites, fighting battles, and eventually making it home I thought that this b [...]

  • This was an adequate read However, it was directed towards a younger audience so I got bored relatively often.
