The Left Behind was a solid audiobook. One down side that I didn't so much care for was the delay between chapters and when the narrator stopped and started the speaking. I did find the plot interesting and finished the book in just a couple of days. I look forward to starting the next book in the series.
I started reading the series, the first book I read in only a few days then the 2nd and 3rd. I am not big on reading (sad to say). Then I bought the series on Audible and am currently on my 5th run through of the series. Each time I listen I feel I learn something new, not just about the book but about myself. I have read some comments saying that it was too forward and pushy.. And I think, do these readers know what the books are even about? I would hope and pray that If I was left behind that I would be surrounded by the forward and pushy people. I would become one, Just like the characters in this series. I am thankful for these books and I hope anyone reading this review that hasn't read the series to purchase and listen.. Thank you to Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins for writing this series. God Bless..
I love these books but the voices are horrible. Very corny men's voices sound like they came from a Dick Tracy cartoon. Women's voices sound like children and dumb blondes. In the books the women are just as strong as the men. And Carpathia sound like a 70 year old man. They need to read the books to get the characters right with the voices. Starting to get very annoyed.
Please fix the character voices. It is destroying the books.
I like the books. But, this narrator has a monotone voice even when he reads what the characters have said. I would have rather heard voices from each character in the book.
I had heard about this series for years. For some reason, I thought it would be more science fiction apocalypse than it is. Instead, it is a very long, thinly veiled sermon which might have been written by my brainwashed brother in law. I concur with the reviewer who commented on the audio quality. While I did not detect the sound of a toilet flushing, I did hear background noises and voices through much of the recording, as well as the extremely distracting sound of the mic every time the narrator turned it on and off. I will also take the advice of reviewers who preferred someone other than Mr. Sondericker narrating. While his voice is not bad, per se, it only seems to contribute to the "preachiness" of the writing. I am overwhelmed by the feeling that I'm listening to a "Davey and Goliath" cartoon throughout, with all the characters played by Ronald Reagan. Now, I like Ronald Reagan's voice. But not when it is crossed with Yoda for the voice of the Israeli scientist, or an elf for all the female voices, or Truman Capote for the anti-Christ. I will listen to the entire series, eventually, but in small doses. And I hope it gets better.
