    Story

    It is often said, even by critical scholars who should know better, that “writing in the name of another” was widely accepted in antiquity. But New York Times bestselling author Bart D. Ehrman dares to call it what it was: literary forgery, a practice that was as scandalous then as itis today. In Forged, Ehrman’s fresh and original research takes readers back to the ancient world, where forgeries were used as weapons by unknown authors to fend off attacks to their faith and establish their church.

    Story
    What did you love best about Forged?

    When reading the script about Philemon, the reader said chapter 24. When in fact, it shoud have been verse 24, as Philemon only has one chapter.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Very informative and confirming my gut feeling about religion as a whole. Mr. Ehrman's last comments about lying are very well put.


    Which character – as performed by Walter Dixon – was your favorite?

    All are well portraied. The diction is excellent.


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

    Wake Up!


    Any additional comments?

    Please have Harper Audio redo the sement about Philemon. Otherwise the book is perfect.

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    Story
    (15670)

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, as it gives the best and most insightful look at the future had JFK did not die on 11/22/63. And the very true idea that the past is obdurate, with life turning on a dime. This concept applies to all of us, our pasts and our futures!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The lead, Jake/George. I felt his thought patterns were very real to true life experiences.


    What about Craig Wasson’s performance did you like?

    His reading was excellent. Never a slip and always given to the character he was reading at the time.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, where and who decided just who the green/yellow/black card man would be in each time level. Was he being punished by some unknown controlling force in the universe? Or was it really a God taking stock of we humans by allowing us access to the past with our never ending desire to change things? Or was he a demon or an angel? Where did he come from and where did he go?


    Any additional comments?

    Excellent book. It never loses your interest from being to the end!
