I gave this audiobook high marks for those who narrated the story. They made it come to life!
I wasnt able to listen to the books in order of sequence.
All i can say is WOW!!! I'm still listening to it, but i am so captivated!!! This is not read like your average book, or like most Bibles read. The sound effects, multiple voices really draw you in. Not to mention the voices are very nice sounding. I like it so much i want to purchase two boxed sets here soon. One for my mom, and one for my church.
The narrators individually yes. I found the presentation extremely distasteful. I am not a fan of ensemble casts, but this is very bad. And God (tympani) said (women singing vowels -AAAAAA, OOOO, UUUU) strike them with the edge of the sword (Smack, Biff, Whap) and there will be crying and gnashing of teeth (weeping screaming) etc. etc. I kind of think the book stands on its own, or should. Most of the actors were clearly told to overact and took the direction to heart. The text is not segregated into books in a manner that could be referenced easily.
When it was blessedly over.
To many, most seeming to be competing to overact the others. Michael York, one of my favorite narrators, was a refreshing exception.
The text stands on its own, but it was not left alone.
I am so thankful this is wonderful I have my kindle set up so I can walk around and to include typing this while listening to God's word wow I have been wanting to read the bible from front to back and this is even better no mispronouncing words or struggling I just enjoy the word thanks again prayer answered.
another kind of bible I think love to listen to Gods word maybe some great love stories from the bible
no too long have been listening as I walk do errands type this and so on
wonderful thank you again enjoying it so very much
The bible is the most important book in history, so relative comparisons are probably unfair.
Obviously the print version is the Word of God and cannot be less than the Audio book but this version is fabulous! So easy to listen to and totally gets you into the stories. Everything is so professionally done!
I love the music score that runs throughout. Makes you feel like you are listening to something like Lord of the Rings or something like that. An action/adventure movie!
I actually appreciate the Narration or Michael York the best
No but i was totally impressed
Yes I would recommend it. The actors do a good job of portraying the message.
They are very expressive.
The greatest story ever told.
I have not finished listening to all the volumes yet, but I am glad that I bought it.
Michael York is a pleasure to listen to as narrator. Perfect voice, very clear, doesn't detract from what is being said. I, unlike others, am unable to break down who reads what, but they have all done an excellent job.
Very good sound quality. Background music and all narration combines for a terrific listen.
Everyone should have this audio book. Put it on an MP3 and listen where ever you are, any time.
I found this series very engaging and easy to listen to. I appreciate that it is not just someone sitting in a room reading. There is allot of work behind the making of this series. A bit dramatic is places but overall very well done.
