Because the flow of the scriptures is interupted I am going to find another audible Book of Mormon
Love the Book of Mormon and the way it makes me feel
by reading every verse and chapter
The reader recites the chapter and verse over and over in front of every verse. Good grief. How can one follow the story with so many numbers being recited ad nausem.
Worst I have ever started to listen to.
Not a chance.
I want the story read - not a bunch of numbers!
Cut out the numbers except for the chapters. I want my money back.
All of the chapter and verse numbers were narrated along with the text. There are two significant problems with this, it could have been half the length and it was extremely distracting. Every other sentence was, "1 Nephi 8:10", etc. for about 30 hours. I understand that some people like to quote chapter and verse but is an audiobook the place for that? Personally, I think not.
The text is enriching and brought me to a closer understanding of my own faith. The narrator was very good too except that the producers made him read all of the chapter and verse numbers.
I would never have read the book. So I guess Sean made that possible.
For the love of God, make a new recording without the chapter and verse numbers, please.
The constant repeating of Chapter and Verse ruin this reading. Please will someone do a narrative of the Book of Mormon so that we can enjoy the message and not the numbers! Don't waste your money on this one. I can hardly wait until someone does the audio version so it can be enjoyed instead of causing a headache.
Every bit of the Book of Mormon is wonderful.
Sean Crisden is just fine. I like his voice and pace.
I am a Mormon. It's scripture and it's true. This presentation had no redeeming qualities but a first time listener would give this type of presentation short shrift and I wouldn't blame them one bit.
Hurry up and get the job done right!
The narrator reads the numeric reference to each verse before reading the text which breaks up each chapter so much- it really interrupts the flow. I found it so distracting I decided to return this. At least the old cd version one can still find doesn't do this.
As for the performance itself, well I was hoping it would be better than the cd version since it's newer. However it's not, it is just as mechanical and flat. It reminded me of a computer. So much for a great portable version I can listen to. I'm going to just have to stick with written text where the Book of Mormon is concerned.
I love the Book of Mormon, and wanted to listen to it on my mp3 player. BUT, the voice sounds like it comes from a computer circa 1976. Verbalizing chapter and verse is incredibly distracting. Come on, guys. You can do MUCH better than this.
There's no way that I will ever listen to this recording on audio. It is SO poorly done.
I love the Book of Mormon, but there is no way you can listen to it when the narrator states the verse before reading it. It completely ruined the flow. And not only is it stated once, but TWICE.
Don't waste your money or credits on this version of the Book of Mormon. Find an audio version where they don't label each verse, or just stick to reading it.

Yes, but not scripture because of the naming of every verse. Chapter headings would be enough
I had to delete this from my library. I can't beleive someone thought reading the chapter number and first number before every one was a good idea. Annoying!
