I have been trying to ready straight through the Bible for years and every time I get hung up somewhere between Exodus and Duteronomy...Well not this time! I love the voice acting it really brings the people to life... I began to recognize voices ..hey was that Jason Alexander as Joseph...sure was and he did a great job.
Well its the greatest ever told ..enough said
I really loved the multiple voices..often when reading you can forget who it is that is speaking, but with the unique actors and voices for each character it makes it easy to follow.
I am supprised by how much I am enjoying listening to it. I had expected it to be a better reading than most but I didnt realize that I would choose to listen to it while I was eating dinner rather than watching TV
I listen to this on my way to and from work mostly, 15-20 min each way... in the harder chapters (brought a silver bowl worth 20 schekles according to the scheckel of the sanctuary filled with....) I was able to power through and found a couple gems because of it, the story of Kora and of Nadab and Abahu stories I usually miss because of the content around them. I highly recomend this audiobook.
I don't know that the audio is better, but it's more convenient and allows a person to walk or drive while taking in the story.
Similar to the Hunger Games, Ferenhite 451, Gatica, they also are about a society on the edge, a disenfranchised group of people and the resiliency of human nature
Emma had a great voice for the characters. Her portrail of Trice was spot on allowing the listener to imagine that she was the character.
There were moments I laughed, cried, and lots of tension
A great start to this trilogy allowing the reader to know the characters, lifestyle, and experience the joy and fear of coming into their own as Trice. Well worth the read
I loved his description of moving between the levels while in his brain dead state
His account of what happened while he was away was very complelling and rang of truth
While I think his experience was real and I even believe he went to heaven, I have some questions about his interprutation and his reaction to that information now that he is back. He asked questions that were important to him, but I would have had some other questions as well.
My liberal friends even found a few things to laugh at.
I liked the chapter on babies :)
Never listened to his books before.
It's a fun quick listen... Laugh at yourself... Maybe see things from another point of view. Very enjoyable
