I didn't complete this title. As I was reading along with the text on Kindle, I noticed twice in the first chapter very long passages that the audio skipped. I will try another version, and with this, offer no review on the content. Just do not buy this version if you want it unabridged.
I'm afraid the book leaves too much to the imagination of the reader to understand what must have been taking place under Mr. Kurtz's leadership.

I believe I might have seen this movie several years ago.
I've been slow to come around to audio books (reluctant as I am to take credit for having read a book when someone else read it to me). Mr. Branaugh's performance in this book was amazing. It so shaped the content, and my grasp of it, that as a result I'm much closer to abandoning those reservations completely in the future.
It is the only audiobook I've listened to in its entirety.
I enjoyed reviewing several well-known aspect of world history, and learning of many other unfamiliar ones, woven together in a coherent worldview.
I don't disapprove of her performance at all... this was my first audiobook and it was a bit of a challenge to engage the male author while hearing his words in a female voice. I'm not sure I ever made the connection completely.
Schaeffer's indictment of Christians who have held to thoroughly orthodox views in most areas while ignoring Scriptural teaching on race and compassionate use of wealth.
