    1. I think this book was trying to be some sort of emotional "thriller" but it was only half-baked to me. The real problem with this book is that she didn't make me care about any of the characters, I started liking one only to find out that they were uber-crazy and then I had no real care if they lived or died in The Elevator. Also it was marked 'Christian-fiction" in the library and it felt like she through that in at the very end. People decide to try to live better lives. A sentence or two at t [...]


    2. No somnolence hereAngela Hunt has some real talent in this and the Fairlawn series. She can grab the reader's interest without letting up. She brings the characters to life without sleep-inducing detail. Because this story takes off from page 1 and doesn't slow down, schedule your time so you don't have to put it aside. Three women from different backgrounds get stuck in an elevator of a high rise building during an approaching hurricane. One has a lover and wants a commitment from him. She was [...]


    3. Three women who have never met before are stuck in an elevator during a devastating hurricaine that is pounding Tampa, Florida. They all have secrets -- and it turns out they all center on the same man.I enjoyed this. I immediately connected with the characters, and the author's portrayal of their pasts and their conflicts kept me fascinated. Few secrets, since the reader knows from the back cover how they're all connected, but the writing is so good that I kept reading to see how they discovere [...]


    4. I haven't read many christian novels lately, but my boss led me to read this one. I always have enjoyed Angela Hunt's books. Now, my boss likes books where all ends well and didn't like what happened to one of the main characters in the end. However, I was okay with it. We all make choices, wrong or right. That's just part of life. Wrong choice-bad ending. This was one of those stories that portrays that not every person makes the right choice. It is a novel with deep meaning and yet, it was a l [...]


    5. Fabulous, couldn't put it down book full of action. Three women are stuck in an elevator Sounds boring, doesn't it? Consider that one might be a murderer, or maybe even more than one, that there is a hurricane raging outside and no one to rescue them, that one man has a chance to save them, maybe, if he can survive the storm and get to them in time, and that their lives are, quite literally, hanging in a very precarious balance. Kept me up all night!


    6. Three women stuck in an elevator during a raging hurricane. All with secrets, one a possible killer, one the mistress of a man, the third a thief. Well put together story and recommended.



    7. Who would ever believe that a nail-biter could happen all within the confines of an elevator! Set during a hurricane in an elevator, these unlikely characters find their inner strengths.


    8. This book was so good! Great suspense, imagery and unpredictability. It was so creative. You will not put it down. Planning to continue to fill my bookshelf with more Angela Hunt.


    9. Having read several excellent books by Angela Hunt, I picked this book up with high expectations. And I must say, I felt let down.The characters were not admirable, and I was displeased at some of the subject content. The man the story surrounded was cheating on his wife, his wife had found out and was going to do something about it, i.e. shoot him dead. To make things worse, the his mistress (who wasn't even aware that he was married) had just discovered that she was pregnant. Both of these wom [...]


    10. This book is fun ride that goes straight to the top.The Elevator is set in Tampa Bay, where a hurricane is approaching. The story take place almost entirely within the span of one day. Three women are all racing against the hurricane and become trapped in an elevator together in a downtown building.Gina is determined to confront her cheating husband. Michelle prepares to deliver an ultimatum to her feet-dragging boyfriend. And Isabel, the housekeeper, is hiding from the authorities. It’s easy [...]


    11. Wow. I admit I was surprised at this story. It was good though. Took me a little while to get into because of the way the POV jumps from one character to another. I think it was a realistic plot. I was able to empathize and relate with each of the characters (except Parker, of course lol). The first discussion question was 'Will you ever be able to ride in an elevator without thinking of this story?' For me, the answer is definitely no! As I was thinking about this story, I did agree at first wi [...]


    12. **Update** I have no idea what I found so fascinating about the book the first time around. The second time around, I found an average, fairly predictable narrative that I could figure out most of the details early on. This book did not survive round two of the purge from my personal collection.A review from my old blogYet again Angela Hunt does not fail to captivate. She can take a seemingly fragile premise and turn it into a captivating book. At certain points I could not pull myself away from [...]


    13. This book was good, and I enjoyed reading it, but it is not my favorite by Angela Hunt. First of all, the Christian aspect of the story only comes in at the end, and is not prevalent or woven throughout as in some of her other novels. Secondly, I just didn't find some of the things that happened really credible. (view spoiler)[ For example, I found it very hard to believe that a mother with children would ignore the likely consequences and immediately decide to kill her husband when she learns o [...]


    14. Very well written, however, if you're in the mood for a super suspenseful, twists and turns kind of book, this is NOT it! It is everything you think at the beginning and there is no super awesome twist or anything that keeps you guessing until the end.There are 3 women stuck in an elevator during a hurricane and they are all linked by one man. The flashbacks of 2 of the women are really boring and I skimmed those pages. The flashbacks of the janitor are really interesting, though. Because it was [...]


    15. The Elevator is a good readAngela Hunt has always been a favorite of mine. This story is told partially in the current setting and partially with people thinking or remembering back. This type of writing style is not my favorite. It also was a little slow in parts which is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. The book is very interesting and has a fair amount of suspense which I love. I would recommend this book to anyone who is okay with the present/past alternating story line. I also did not fe [...]


    16. I finally got to this one after it languished in my book bag for about 6 weeks. I read it in a day. It was a compelling story - 3 women trapped in a sky rise elevator as a hurricane bore down on this coastal city. It's interesting to watch them evolve and change in the hours as they wait for their rescue and for fate to unfold the story of why each of them are in the elevator.The faith component is downplayed for the most part although lies underneath the plot. I like it, but didn't LOVE it. Lit [...]


    17. Three women stuck in an elevator, all with a vested interest in one man who happens to be on the top floor of an office complex in Tampa, FL. The unthinkable happens when a hurricane hits, trapping the women and taking them on the ride of their lives as slowly, but surely each divulges her story. Murder. Romance. Intrigue. All delivered with a gripping message that Hunt delivers with skill and precision.


    18. Wow! What a ride. You can't lay this book down when you get about half way in. Three women are trapped in an elevator in a Tampa skyscraper while a hurricane approaches the area. They don't realize how intertwined their lives are until they are trapped together. One man comes to try to rescue them, and what happens next keeps you on the edge of your seat. Fast paced, exciting, and really worth reading.


    19. Every book I read by this author is totally different. I am enjoying every one. This book was centered around an elevator during a hurricane. Three women found themselves trapped due to the weather and the resulting power outage. I thought it was very insteresting. She of course gave you back ground on every character, so you understood why they made the choices they made. It was very interesting, but I may never go in an elevator again ( just kidding ).


    20. This book centers around 3 women who get trapped in an elevator. Gina is a wife who just found proof that her husband was cheating on her, so she came to his work to confront him. The second woman, Michelle, just so happens to be the guy's mistress. Then there's Isabel, a cleaning lady with a shady past and a guilty conscience. Need more drama? Their city is under evacuation due to an approaching hurricane, leaving them little hope for a rescue.


    21. Good Writing;Improbable PlotAngela Hunt is a prolific writer and most of her novels make for compelling reading. Not every book is going to be a hit; this one, for me, was a miss. Improbable plot, motivation of the characters and wordy backstories left me skimming through hugh junks of this one.


    22. I liked this book, this was my first reading by this author. I will say for it to be a Christian book, I would have thought that God, Christ or even church was referenced much sooner & more. Gina's character was something else, she was very selfish and cared only about her family & their reputation. I will read another book by the author to see if she is true to Christian writer.


    23. I loved this book. It kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time I read it. It was exciting.I sent the Author a email and told her this book would make a good movie. She wrote me back and said it had been accepted by the Lifeline channel and hopefully would be on in the near future. I sure hope it is.


    24. This book was spell bounding from the beginning! I could not put it down! Read it in 1 day. Thank goodness it was a 4 day weekend! Stayed up untill 1 AM to finish it! You never know who you may come in contact with and how directly they may be involved in your circumstances. A must read. Definately reading more of Angela Hunt writings. Next one In Debt.


    25. Fast paced and full of conflict, The Elevator is the uniquely woven stories of three completely different women. I wish I could have given it 4 or 5 stars, but certain events (rather,the lack of an event) were pretty disappointing. The end just didn't deliver for me, or come across as completely realistic. But all in all, not bad for a one time read.


    26. 3.5 starsWhile the plot line was a bit unbelievable, the writing style was good enough to keep me captivated. I enjoyed the three women's background stories and the excitement of being trapped in an elevator during a hurricane, kept me turning the pages. Also, I loved Sadie! An easy, entertaining read.


    27. I didn't think you could write a whole book about three totally different women trapped in a downtown, high-rise, elevator during a Florida hurricane, but Angela Hunt did just that and very eloquently. It was a pretty wild ride. I finished it rather quickly as it kept me reading and awake at night, instead of putting me to sleep. I enjoyed it thoroughly!


    28. I haven't read an Angela Hunt book since Uncharted (which I LOVED), and this one didn't disappoint. She has a really unique style, and her take on Christian fiction is great. I didn't like this one AS MUCH as Uncharted, but it was a good one nonetheless.


    29. One of the things I like about books of Hunts that I have read is they are not full of vulgar language that is not necessary to the story.I just wish every author would realize not everyone in the US uses the f-word.
