An incredible book that will let you see what is taught in mainline Seminaries and Divinity schools throughout the western world... much of it you'll probably never learn about in church, even though your pastor knows many of these facts... It's like a seminary in a book and will add a whole new dimension to your reading of the most significant book in the western world. It teaches a critical historic review of the New Testament rather then what most people know which is just a devotional read of the Bible. I first listened to on audible and like it so well bought a couple copies here for me and other more progressive friends.
Story depth, connections to childhood fears, multiple time sequencing
Blend of childhood and adult views of the same person
"It"... scariest voice ever
Yes but had to break it up... spellbinding
Albeit the narration could have been better, this book will open your eyes to how much people lose in investments by ‘assuming’ people and companies that make commission selling you products have your best interest in mind. It offers clear examples of how various investment products are sold that benefit the salesman or company not the individual. Not only covering individual investing, the book points out how changes in government programs that have changed the way people save for retirement, not always for the better. It exposes how lobbyists promote laws that benefit large investment houses over the individual investor. Anyone that is investing for retirement should listen to this book to become a more enlighten investor when choosing products and investment help.
Twist and turns combined middle east intrigue make this book woven with current events an exciting listen.
This Incredible story will keep you riveted until the end.
James Lee Burke paints incredibly detailed picture of a world I've never seen providing the reader / listener an environment that engages all senses. Will Patton’s narration is exquisite, using amazingly diverse voices to bring the richness of characters and scenes to life. You get a sense of experiencing hero, villain, and every walk of life in-between.
The plot not for the faint of heart as Burke explores the darker sides of post Katrina New Orleans as only someone that has lived life there would know. This incredible walk through the minds of criminals and law enforcement weaves a tail of 'who done it' that combined with excellent narration makes this one of my top picks of some 100 books I've listened to.
Long time fan of Dean Koontz who paints incredibly vivid pictures with his words but I found this one started a little slow and was a little too heavy on the dog loving viewpoint… This book has very dark villains combined with descriptions of terrifying crimes that are not for the faint at heart… was almost too intense a listen for me about midway. The second half of book is where it picks up momentum for an incredible end… Dean once again delivers incredible twists that keep you mind spinning…
An eclectic collections of stories will especially appear to those interested in hearing the Maine back country or California (from earthquakes to the gold rush)? both interesting. I felt the stories about turn of the century America and life of a sea captain kind of dragged? Worth while if you?re a fan of John McPhee?s style, a delightful story teller but I found that I was skipping some slower sections.
An amazing journey through multiple worlds told with word pictures as only Stephen King can paint. You experience the life a boy battling demons, inside and out, in his quest to save his mother becomes a man?
Started with the short version, like so well I ordered and listened to the unabridged version? This book covers everything from the start of time to virology? I?ve listened to it multiple times; it?s full of amazing facts? It?s so good you?ll probably be like me and end up buying the hardcover as a reference?
An amazing work this book alone was nearly worth my subscription to Audible. Note there are two versions available here
