the danger of fame
2 stars By Marija, Dec 01 2017
I normally find Karen Kingsbury's novels uplifting and inspiring, but '15 Minutes' felt depressing. I'm sure it is accurate in its portrayal of the temptations and compromises that come with fame, but I felt it hard to enjoy this novel.

A must for reality tv watchers
5 stars By Christine, Aug 17 2017
This book was outstanding.  In a society where reality tv shows particularly musical ones are so prominent. This book gives a very honest and realistic view of what goes on behind the scenes and proves that reality tv is not very real at all.  It is a compelling book that confronts the issues of Christians compromising to get ahead, value systems and the price that people have to pay for fame through the genre of fiction  I couldn't put it down and found  yourself willing the characters she created to make different decisions.  I have recommended this to so many people particularly young people.  Highly recommend to, a challenging well written book that will change a lot of minds

Great novel
4 stars By Sarah, Jul 27 2016
Karen Kingsbury is a great story teller. The book Fifteen minutes focuses on the struggles and challenges a young man has when auditioning for a music tv show. It highlights many of the issues young people are currently dealing with . It was a lovely easy read that speaks the truth in love.

Good read
4 stars By Joy Chapman, Aug 03 2015
How often do you think you can stand strong and resist temptation, only to find weakness during the event?(Romans 7:14-25)
This book, which was almost a 'can't put down book', is an example of the weakness of mankind when faced with the pressures of the world, even though the resolve was to be strong!
