    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.

    Overall

    I wonder if the great James Earl Jones had any idea that his reading was going to laced with awful piano music? Example: the first part of Matthew regarding the lineage of Joseph - is articulate, and perfect in it's pronunciation - sounds like it's being read outside a funeral chapel's open windows. I'd have listened better if it was the vocal alone :(

    The system was simple. Everyone understood it. Books were for burning, along with the houses in which they were hidden. Guy Montag was a fireman whose job it was to start fires, and he enjoyed his job. He had been a fireman for 10 years, and never questioned the pleasure of the midnight runs, nor the joy of watching pages consumed by flames. He never questioned anything, until he met a 17-year-old girl who told him of a past when people were not afraid, and a professor who told him of a future in which people could think. Guy Montag suddenly realized what he had to do.

    Casey says: "Still Relevant"
    "Super Reading Voice and Style!!!"
    Overall

    I loved listening to the way the characters were interpreted - which ranged from a 30 yr old wife, to an aged professor, to a seventeen yr old girl. The read is sometimes in a monotone voice - deliberatly suggesting the thoughts (read: fear) going through the mind of Guy, a fireman in the future. Highly recommended :o)
