    One of the most revered works in English literature, Great Expectations traces the coming of age of a young orphan, Pip, from a boy of shallow aspirations into a man of maturity. From the chilling opening confrontation with an escaped convict to the grand but eerily disheveled estate of bitter old Miss Havisham, all is not what it seems in Dickens’ dark tale of false illusions and thwarted desire.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Great Expectations to be better than the print version?

    Simon is a genius. He made each character come alive. Very well done!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Great Expectations?

    A memorable moment was when Pip discovered who Estella's birth mother and father were.


    What does Simon Prebble bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    All the different tones of the characters. Wonderful drama!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    You know them, or DO YOU?

    Sinners in the Hands of Angry God is considered the most famous sermon ever preached in American history. Jonathan Edwards delivered this message on July 8, 1741, in Enfield, Connecticut. Many who heard it trembled and cried out for mercy. Others fainted. Five hundred people were converted that day.

    Louis says: "A Sermon of the Great Mercy of God"

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I listened this to this because I missed it in school.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Jonathan Edwards? Why or why not?

    I may, if I was studying Puritan culture.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Max McLean?

    Meh.


    Did Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God inspire you to do anything?

    Yes, it reminded me when a person falls, it always takes them by surprise, and they are powerless in themselves to stop falling. That when walking on ground ripe for falling, even walking carefully, you may expect to fall.


    Any additional comments?

    In this culture, it's good to be reminded that one cannot walk in dangerous ground and expect not to fall. Bad manners corrupt good conversation, as the Scripture says.
