Even though you know how the story will end, it's a wonderful journey getting there. You feel his frustration at the beginning and end and you cringe at his sense of superiority in the middle.
This is an inspirational book about the women of the bible. I didn't remember there being so many. The author did great background research. It's been interesting to pre-read the passages and then do the weekly study - sometimes a different observation or slant is presented. A good read.
I downloaded this book to listen to on our 48 hr driving trip. OMG, after 4 hrs we were amazed that we were only a fraction through the book. I took a nap twice during the trip and didn't miss a thing (my husband was still listening). If there is an abridge edition, buy it instead.
Everyone should read through the Bible at least once so I chose this audio version to listen to on the way to work. The narrator does an excellent job.
I would like to be able to search for a specific book or chapter to listen to and can't find any way to do it. The Bible is uploaded as 14 sections, with no TOC.
I just love Caitlin and Dr. Karota (sp?).
The concept is very interesting and am courious to see where it goes. The signing apes and the extermination in China was dropped, but I assume that they will reappear in the next book.
The idea of a "webmind" lurking out there is a scary thought, but then Big Brother has been watching for many years, hasn't he?
Really enjoyed having different narrators bringing the story to life.
Overall a good read and am looking forward to the 2nd book in the trilogy.
I was captured by this book from the first word. No secrets are given away, but you get a good idea of how and why things are done the Seal way. The narrator, Holter Graham, does an excellent job and brings life to the written word. I listened to it on the way to work and looked forward to the commute each day. "Mark" and the others are truly brave men who keep our country safe. I could see the hand of God keeping them safe during their missions. Bless them.
I loved the dual narration, it really lent a feeling of space and time. I enjoyed the story very much and didn't want it to end. I like how his life went full circle.
Watching Enza's and Chero's lives intertwine as their paths crossed continues to give hope that they will get together. I really felt empathy for both of them and was so glad when they finally find each other.
As for the narration - I really enjoyed Annabella's performance, but didn't care for Adriana's, even though I know that she was trying to give a radio, theatrical flair to it. Annabella's voice was so wonderful to listen to and would have preferred to only have her, which is why I only gave a 4 on the performance.
I was a little skeptical about this book, even though I like Bill O'Reilly. I've never been too interested in history - in school it was all about memorizing dates and names. Bill really brings the details to life and I was drawn into the story. Very good.
Very good story, storytelling and keeps you on your toes. A good who-done-it. Kept me interested all the way though.
