  • New American Bible: Revised New Testament, Catholic Edition

    The text of the books contained in The New American Bible is a completely new translation throughout. From the original and the oldest available texts of the sacred books, it aims to convey as directly as possible the thought and individual style of the inspired writers.

    "Good narration"
    Overall

    This is a good translation of the New Testament, and it is the one used in Catholic liturgies in the USA, which makes it especially useful to me.

    The narration is excellent: pace, expressiveness.

    There are two drawbacks. Audible inhalations detract from the quality of the narration, and section headings are read along with the biblical text. I find the latter to be especially distracting.

  • Anna Karenina

    Story
    (258)

    This is the story of the unhappy family of Anna Karenina. The novel contains much concerning Tolstoy's spiritual crisis and his search for the meaning of life. But it is also chiefly about marriage, and the growth and death of love.

    AnnaH says: "Even Better Aloud"
    "Glad I listened"
    Overall

    I listened to this audiobook because I had heard that some consider "Anna Karenina" to be the greatest novel ever written. It was beautifully narrated, very pleasant and engaging. Some parts were absolutely enthralling. Tolstoy has a genius for describing deep, inner human drives and motives. A couple of parts were tedious (perhaps inevitable in any work this length). On the whole, it was beautiful, and I enjoyed the unexpected ending of the whole story.

    From a top-secret government laboratory come two genetically altered life forms. One is a magnificent dog of astonishing intelligence. The other, a hybrid monster of a brutally violent nature. And both are on the loose....

    Katie says: "Great book; so-so narrator"
    "Finished in two days"
    Overall

    Exciting, suspenseful, and soothing. This was my first Koontz book. It will not be my last. I loved the story and the narration.
