I'm glad I chose the unabridged audio version over print. The reader did voices so well, I forgot the characters were fictional. The story seemed real
Dr. Birjandi's final stand in the facility. I wondered if he would truly stand for Christ. I knew in my heart he would, but it was amazing to see it happen. He was afraid but did what he had to do. I sometimes time wonder if I could be as courageous. This scene reminded me to be in prayer and ready at all times to speak the truth even if might mean my execution.
Nouri's kidnapping from the hospital had me off the edge of my chair. It didn't seem like they could pull that off, but the quickness and unity of the team made it happen. I loved the courage, teamwork, and daring of all the players.
Twelfth Imam Goes Down -- he was the essence of evil. Glad to see him go.
Lots of page-turning tension. I now have no more fingernails, but it was worth it. My favorite book of 2013 so far.
Rosenberg puts together another page turner but intertwined in the espionage, bombs and intrigue are too many personal stories of characters finding Jesus. I don't know if he's trying to broaden his appeal or just doesn't realize how these ill fitting, forced and interruptive these subplots are to the story.
For the first time, I've encountered an audio book that I am unwilling to listen to through the end. There should be a warning in the description that this book is evangelism thinly disguised as a story about international conflict. I wasted a credit.
I guess I got caught up in the need to finish this thing. I did like the characters and found the three books interesting and enjoyable overall. They were not great work - but the plot was certainly current and relevant and there were interesting tid bits of info along the way.
Not sure I would recommend - but if you start the first you should hang in there until the end of the third.
Joel's books are one of my go tos in studying end time prophecy. I consider his writings a bible study to help me understand apocalyptic events. For me personally, they are so well written that I cannot put them down and I was not disappointed with this one either!!! I enjoy how he keeps the story moving from one scene to another - setting up, connecting and developing the individual characters while unfolding the story!!
This was my first audio book and the reader kept me captivated w his excellent dialect of the different characters!! Especially the prime minister of Israel--he sounded just like the current PM, amazing!!
One more thing: I was very moved emotionally during this read: I wept during the heart breaking scenes, laughed out loud many many times and was elated when victory was achieved. It's a very compelling read and I'd highly recommend it!!
I will definitely purchase more audio versions of Joel's books!!! Excellent!!!
Great writer, story, characters and transition. Listened on audible while walking. Made me want to walk every day. Terrific reader made you feel you were there.
Best of the series. It was so well read that I grew to know and like the characters. This also made it easy to follow. One of my all time favorites by audible.
This was a riveting listen! I devour everything that Mr. Rosenberg writes. The action and suspense is above par, and I love that I can hear the message of the Gospel while following a richly detailed and well-developed storyline. Five stars and two thumbs up!
