"This is an interesting well-written novel about choices and the consequences of those choices. [...] Todd Netland skillfully shows the contrast between good and bad choices and that God gives each of us the free will to decide for ourselves what we choose to do in our lives; [...] This book definitely made an impression on me. I believe you will also enjoy reading this book and that you will like it as much as I do." - Bobirley, Goodreads
Todd Netland's book, "Fame and Fortune Tellers," is the story of one man's rise to the top, almost overnight, in the pop music business. Randy Miller is a young choral teacher who encounters a spiritualist at the tag end of a mini-vacation, who prophesizes a sudden rise to stardom for this school choir teacher. This prediction comes true, but it turns out to be a life of emptiness, joylessness, and conflict for Randy and his family.
Other characters enter into this story who all come together as the main plot and subplots of the story thicken and unfold. Meet Brad Applebaum: a young Christian, zealous about his walk with God, but green in the things of the Lord and life in general. Travel with Pam Jackson: an on-fire Pentecostal and prayer warrior. Meet Darryl Temple: a total loser who ends up completely destroying his life. And finally, meet Eric Burns: leader of the communist revolutionary group, "The Red Riding Rangers."
This novel involves choices of different people and how these choices play out, both in this life and the life to come.
