There is some confusion on Audible about this title. The linked Amazon reviews are for a version of this book which also includes a monthly introduction, discussion of upcoming readings and things to ponder while listening. These monthly recordings are NOT included in this recording. Neither are there any directions or introduction. Because of this listening can be confusing at first. But don't let that stop you. With some searching I was able to find the Kindle version of the book on Amazon for $5.99. By downloading that book with this Audible recording it is possible to have the best of both worlds. I can read the monthly thoughts and discussion in print on my IPad and then listen to the beautifully read daily readings here on Audible. Of course--you may not care about the intros and in that case just listen to the book as it stands on its own.
The recordings are excellent. Masterfully and dramatically read by Christopher Glyn with short bits of music thrown in randomly. The way it works is that the 85 plus hour book has been divided into 10 parts to download and each part has been broken down into approximately 35-37 chapters. The chapters vary in length from 2-3 minutes to just over 20 minutes. You just listen to one of these "chapters" each day. The readings jump around through the Old Testament, New Testament and the Psalms. This breaks things up a bit. It feels to me that there are themes and connections between the readings that have been chosen to be grouped together. It all just seems to work beautifully once you have figured it out. So--if you've ever tried and failed or succeed repeated to read the entire Bible in a year I can recommend this recording as one method that is working for me. I find the additional print introductions helpful. This book has turned out to be a streamlined, simple to do and very positive addition to my daily listening.
Pros: Enjoyable Listen. If not for all the "Cons" below, I would have rated this as a total of five stars.
1. Advertised as "Complete". It is only Old Testament
2. Advertised as "Dramatized". Technically, it is not advertised. It has background music (no sound affects) - also just has different voices reading the different parts (this in my opinion, does not mean "dramatized").
3. Does not advertise who is doing the different voices (this would be a nice feature)
4. After downloaded, it does not show what book you are listening to, etc. Therefore, if you wanted to listen to a particular book, very difficult to locate the book.
Seems like the people who publish Bible Audio Books would find a way to format it so you can view books, chapters etc, - view what you are listening to.
Other than all the above, I really enjoyed listening to.
