Father Robert Barron reads with style his own book which gives new insights to wake up a person's faith. Not just a standard catechism although it is truly authentic, but it is a fresh and compelling view of what Catholicism is and is not. The little pictures and stories collected here bring faith to life, presenting a real life picture of a startling, radical religion that is Catholicism.
Father Barron is a good reader and clearly believes what he has written and now reads. The tone is enthusiastic without false excitement, honest and refreshing.
If you want to really think out your faith, this is a great place to start.
The voice of Barry Corbin brings something extra here. I love westerns but wasn't a Max Brand fan. But I will listen all day to Barry Corbin read Max Brand-- or any other book.
This performance is near the top. It is a recording of a movie from the Rathbone / Bruce years. It is not a reading but actual performance. If you have not seen the movie it might be hard to follow, but if you loved that movie series, just listening to it again is great.
The characters of Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson as played by Rathbone and Bruce are great. The other cast of character actors lend atmosphere.
The only missing piece is the original opening score. I am sure there was a reason the movie score was not included.
I love the old Star Trek optimism and style. The music that accompanies is perfect. Great escape from the ordinary for a while.
This was a good chance to bring out Dr. McCoy's past a bit. Mostly though, I like to hear the original stars. James Doohan has a great voice and can bring the other character's voices into his reading. He knows their style and pace of speaking.
Doohan has a perfect reading voice. It brings back memories of the original. He can mimic for lack of a better word, the voices of the other main characters extremely well.
I wanted to learn a little more about this man and listening to Charlton Heston made it easier. It isn't the end, but it is a beginning of a study of St. Augustine. Great way to draw you into further study or to learn just enough to be conversant about him. Either way, a pleasure to listen.
The information is great and listening to Charlton Heston makes it easy to learn a little more than passing knowledge. While it is only a small start to the real study of this landmark thinker, it is a great introduction and the narrator makes it easy.
Primarily because of the narrator this and all David Suchet's Poirot reading rank high. Perfect escape from stress.
