I am an audio book enthusiast because I like to do things while I listen. Mostly that's knitting, but also cleaning the house.

    Our fearless author, A. J. Jacobs, tackles a new intellectual adventure, an exploration of the most influential book in the world: the Bible. He determined that the best way to explore the Bible was to live it, as literally as possible. For one year.

    Jonathan says: "Excellent... But tongue in cheek"
    "It was a nice idea..."
    Overall

    I got this book because it sounded like an interesting idea. Almost anything biblical interests me. However, the author's voice hits me like Sarah Vowell's voice hits some people. (I don't mind Sarah Vowell's voice.) Jacobs' voice got on my nerves. I stopped listening to it at about the 3/4 mark. He's got a very "this was very cute and clever of me" tone to his voice, which I started to hate. I don't know how his wife puts up with him. It's probably a better read than a listen. It is an interesting experiment.
