I read several of their books back in the early 90s and loved them. This was pretty bad, though. No, I won't try another.
No. Unless their going to just write out another book from the Bible. In that case, save your money and read the Bible.
This was a very odd combination. Over half of it was almost word-for-word out of the new testament; a third was the writers worldly view of heaven; and less than a quarter was about the relationship between Lazarus and Jesus.
I think the greatest disappointment was when Jesus called Lazarus to "Come forth!" It wasn't said forcefully, like I always imagined Jesus to have said it. It was just spoken as any other words. Nothing spectacular. Nothing special. "Come forth."
Yay. The same amount of excitement and anticipation you feel in that word is the same as you'll feel when you hear Jesus' words. Give this one a pass.
Wow...so much! Rand understands what the Tea Party is about, and knows how to explain it to an outsider (me). He also understands what America is about and what the silent majority of American's want for this country.
I bought this right after Rand's drone filibuster. I wanted to hear more about what he thinks and feels about America and about what's currently going on in our country. Of course, some of the information is "old", as this book was released a couple years ago. However, it still seems very relevant, in things haven't really changed much, other than to get worse.
If you want to know more about Rand; why the Tea Party is the "laughing stock" of both parties and the media; and to be uplifted by knowing that SOMEbody in Washington finally understand us, then this is the book for you!
Yes and no. The book was very good at showing both sides of the story, but the narration was pretty difficult to get past at times.
At times she sounded like a realllllly bubbly news anchor; other times like a very bored airline stewardess. Her style did not match the topic.
Yes. If I had stopped listening, I don't know that I ever would've gotten started again.
I bought this book for an English Comp assignment, and to get a crash-course into the gun control argument. The author did an excellent job of showing both sides of the argument; although at times I did not agree with the argument.
I will definitely use the knowledge I gained.
I loved Owen Meany, of course. I loved his matter-of-factness; his views on life. BUT, the thing I loved MOST was the narration by Joe Barrett. If I had been *reading* this book, I would have given up at least a couple times. And frankly, I DID give up a couple times, even with listening to it. But the number one thing that brought me back each time was the narration. He did such a wonderful job with all the different characters; there was never a doubt who was speaking at any given time. I will definitely be looking for more books read by Mr Barrett.
There was a lot of fluff. A lot of stuff that didn't matter to the story.
Wow...so many to pick from. I don't think I'll list any, as I don't want to ruin it. But, in general, I found most of the first half of the first section quite amusing. My humor runs a little "odd"...so I found a good portion of it rather funny.
NO. It's WAY too long, and Stephen King goes off on too many tangents. I fast forwarded through half of part 4 just to get it OVER with and hear how it ended.
Take out all the "fluff". I don't enjoy abridged versions, but in this case, I think it would be beneficial,
I reallllly enjoyed Craig Wasson's voices and how you could tell the different characters apart. It's unfortunate that he seems to mostly read for Stephen King, because I won't be listening to another of his (Stephen King's) books.
I attempted to read this book, and only got 1/4 of the way before I lost interest. But I thought if I LISTENED to it, it'd make a difference. It did, a little bit. But I still lost interest. The "twists and turns" of the plot weren't interesting enough to keep me engaged.
