    Few people today realize that this earth is the primary battle zone of a cosmic war that erupted years ago. But, after listening to this book, you will know why it is being fought, how and when it will end. The Great Controversy begins at the dawning of the Christian era, traces the rise and fall of nations and religious powers down to our day, then plunges ahead to preview the future. And what this book sees coming is not based on guesswork.

    "Bad narrator good book"
    Overall

    I hope the publishers of this book consider rerecording it with another narrator.

    As for the book itself, it was very interesting. It is a history book mixed with inspirational and speculative commentary. It gives an accurate accounting of church history starting around the destruction of Jerusalem. It covers Christianity during the decline of the Roman Empire, the dark ages, the reformation, the protestant movements and the pilgrimage to America for religious freedom. It continues with a general account of modern times and finishes with what the climactic conclusion of the conflict between good and evil may be like.

    This book, I believe, was originally published some time before 1920, so it isn't written in the most modern of language. Yet as a student of history and avid follower of modern events it is kind of eerie to see that some of the things the book says would happen, towards the end of time, either have happened and/or are happening now. Other then the victory of good over evil, I pray not to see all of it come true.

    Unfortunately history does seem to repeat itself and if you've read Gibbon's 'The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire' (also not written in the most modern of language yet still a must read/listen) or Robinson's 'A History of Rome'(another must read/listen) you can see a lot of frightening similarities between the Decline of Rome and the United States today. I pray our country can beat the historical repeat and continue as the great nation it was founded to be.

    -God bless America (please)
    -Happy listening and Good Luck

  • War and Peace

    Story

    Often called the greatest novel ever written, War and Peace is at once an epic of the Napoleonic wars, a philosophical study, and a celebration of the Russian spirit. Tolstoy's genius is clearly seen in the multitude of characters in this massive chronicle, all of them fully realized and equally memorable.

    Diana says: "Glad I finally decided to read it"
    "A huge but good listen"
    Overall

    This is indeed a classic both the book itself and the narration. The author does an excelent job with character development. His analysis of History was very thought provoking. The Narrator does a comendable job with voice variations and expression I found I could almost see the characters as he brought them to life. Very worth the investment, if you have the huge amount of time it takes to get through it.

    John Cleese's performance brings The Screwtape Letters to life, conveying all the irony, comedy, and terror of this modern spiritual masterpiece.

    Linda says: "The Screwtape Letters"
    "Fantastic Job"
    Overall

    The narrator does an amazing job. I had never imagined him in anything other than Python but he was briliant in his interpretation and expression. A must hear.
