I would listen to it and have listened to it, in another format. I loved the book read by a different narrator. However, this narrator, Sean Criden, did a real amateurs job of it. The book is divided, like the bible, into chapters and verses. Sean Criden begins each verse with, "The book of_____, chapter___, verse____", then reads the few sentences in the verse. He then starts the next verse with the same, "The book of _______, chapter________, verse______." Considering there are many many verses in each chapter, this format makes virtually impossible to get imersed in the plot and content of the book.
The best thing about this story, is the story itself. It's the history of an ancient people who believed in Jesus Christ, in the Americas. It's powerful and a beautiful book. I love how it's messages have changed my own life. However, you'd have a real hard time experiencing that from this audio version.
If he didn't begin each little verse in the book with a long reference to the book name, chapter and verse number, you mean? Well, he would still be hard to listen to. He reminds me of my middle school math teacher... monotone. Again, get a free copy of this book from the church, buy a hard copy anywhere else or download the better narrator from mormon dot org, instead.
