    In a voice as rich as it is recognized, James Earl Jones lends his narrative talents to the King James Version of the New Testament. In over 19 hours enhanced with a complete musical score, James Earl Jones interprets the most enduring book of our time utilizing the acclaimed actor's superb storytelling and skilled characterizations. Hailed as the greatest spoken-word Bible version ever, and with almost half a million copies sold, this exquisite audio treasury is certain to enthuse and inspire.

    Mark says: "Jones good, music bad"
    "Irritating"
    Overall

    It?s hard to believe that anything being read by James Earl Jones can be described as irritating, but that is the only word for the mediocre background music. After a few minutes, the music begins to affect the ability to listen to the words. A few minutes more and all you hear is the bad music and the words are secondary. I am so sorry I wasted my money on this.

    Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to deliver an evening lecture in the U.S. Capitol. Within minutes of his arrival, the night takes a bizarre turn. A disturbing object is discovered in the Capitol Building. The object is an ancient invitation, meant to usher its recipient into a long-lost world of hidden esoteric wisdom. And when Langdon's mentor is kidnapped, Langdon's only hope of saving him is to accept this invitation and follow wherever it leads him.

    "Extreme disappointment"
    Overall

    The good news is I finally finished listening to it … the bad news is it wasn’t worth the time. Going back to the quality of Brown’s first two books, it is an okay mystery with a rather simple main character. If Mr. Brown is going to continue to use Robert Langdon, perhaps Mr. Langdon should learn from his previous experiences … after all, he is suppose to be a Harvard Professor. Basically, this book was very unsatisfactory. After waiting for the book for so long, I was extremely disappointed that it ended up being a mediocre tourist guide of Washington D.C., strung together by a very lame plot, that drug on way, way too long. I would not recommend this book. If you want to read a good Dan Brown book, try Angels and Demons.

    It was a legendary island, a fantastic island. Atlantis. Or as its prince called it, Athilan. Roy had traveled through time with his partner, Lora, to find it - and now he was tantalizingly close to its shore. Time travel allowed Roy's consciousness to enter the mind of the heir to Atlantis' throne, and what he found disturbed him. Strange dreams. Impossibly futuristic inventions and machines. How could such an advanced city exist at this time? The rest of the world was, as Lora witnessed in her travels, a dark, barbaric land still thawing from the ice age. Roy had been preparing for the odd isolation of time travel, but nothing had prepared him for his final arrival on Atlantis - a shimmering city far beyond his imagination! Roy knew this island's fate. According to legend, it would vanish into the sea. Roy also knew he had a limited amount of time to decipher the strange message in the Prince's mind - visions of cataclysmic events, mysterious rites to a faraway star. If Roy was in an Atlantis unlike anything the researchers had predicted, then what were its secrets? And when would it be destroyed?

    Andrew says: "A familiar tale, but well-told."
    "Disappointed"
    Overall

    From the boring plot going exactly as expected to the shallow letter writer who is the only thing close to a character, this book has been a disappointment from beginning to end. The overall description I would give this piece is bland.
