    Pros: Enjoyable Listen. If not for all the "Cons" below, I would have rated this as a total of five stars.

    Cons:
    1. Advertised as "Complete". It is only Old Testament
    2. Advertised as "Dramatized". Technically, it is not advertised. It has background music (no sound affects) - also just has different voices reading the different parts (this in my opinion, does not mean "dramatized").
    3. Does not advertise who is doing the different voices (this would be a nice feature)
    4. After downloaded, it does not show what book you are listening to, etc. Therefore, if you wanted to listen to a particular book, very difficult to locate the book.

    Seems like the people who publish Bible Audio Books would find a way to format it so you can view books, chapters etc, - view what you are listening to.

    Other than all the above, I really enjoyed listening to.

    A wrong turn in a rainstorm leads Englisher Amelia Devries to Michael Hostetler - and the young Amishman's charming Old Order community of Hickory Hollow. Despite their very different backgrounds, Amelia and Michael both feel hemmed in by the expectations of others and struggle with how to find room for their own hopes. And what first seems to be a chance encounter might just change their lives forever.

    Story

    Overall the story was fairly good. However, predictable. Parts of the story were very touching. Somewhat disappointed in the narration. I do enjoy Christina Moore. However, I never understand when you have two narrators - a male and female - why the male can't do the male parts and vice-a-versa. Other than that it was a nice listen.

    Herman Wouk's sweeping epic of World War II stands as the crowning achievement of one of America's most celebrated storytellers. Like no other books about the war, Wouk's spellbinding narrative captures the tide of global events - and all the drama, romance, heroism, and tragedy of World War II - as it immerses us in the lives of a single American family drawn into the very center of the war's maelstrom.

    At points this book was very interesting, and kept me wanting to finish to see how it ended. However, I didn't appreciate the vulgarity and using the Lord's name in vain through out the book. I also didn't appreciate the fact that the author made about every main character live an immoral lifestyle.

    Narrator did a fantastic job of distinguishing between all the characters. I would have rated the story five stars if it had not been for the author ending the story very abruptly and left you wondering if there is going to be a sequel - some unanswered questions. Very much enjoyed the story line.

    Story

    I have listened to the entire series. The main character from first book drags out into all three books before her story has a good ending. The material in this last book was poorly written, and very unbelievable. I won't mention the details, as I don't want to spoil the story line for anyone who still might want to get it. Although this narrator does a good job, it was very disappointing that the same narrator that did the first two did not narrate this one.

    1. Could not see anywhere on Audible's website what version of the Bible this was done in. Very disappointed in the translation.

    2. Would be helpful if the audio bible was broke down in books (not parts), etc. so it would be easier to select a certain book you wanted to listen too.

    3. Also this particular audio book shows Angela Bassett as the main narrator. However, the main narration was done by a male - not a female.

    4. I found the voice for Moses dull and very irritating.

    5. Some the background music grated on my nerves (especially the high-pitched strings)

    6. I find it extremely interesting that the group who put this audiobook together used various voices (including female!) for David in the book of Psalms.

    If it wasn't for all the aforementioned I might would have given this four stars for overall.

    God has blessed Hezekiah; his kingdom is flourishing. The people are prospering and the city of Jerusalem is safe from invaders. But the king worries that his beloved wife may be barren. After all his hard work in preserving the faith and protecting the faithful, the thought that one of his pagan-worshiping nephews will become ruler is upsetting. But he suffers greater anguish when he stumbles upon the secrets of his queen.

    I AM AN AVID BIBLE READER AND FOUND PORTIONS OF THIS BOOK NOT IN SCRIPTURE. ALSO FOUND PARTS OF THE BOOK VERY IRRITATING FOR REASON OR ANOTHER AND HAD TO FAST FORWARD THROUGH PARTS OF THE BOOK. AGAIN THE BEST PART OF THE BOOK WAS THE NARRATOR. I WILL NOT BE LISTENING TO THE OTHER TWO BOOKS IN THIS SERIES.

    The second book in her Chronicles of the Kings series, Song of Redemption, is a retelling of the life of Hezekiah, King of Judah from 716 to 687 BC. After years of idolatry, Judah's temple has been cleansed and Hezekiah has brought God's law back to his people. But when he incurs the wrath of the barbaric Assyrians, he will need help from a surprising source.

    I found this book disturbing in parts. Gruesome. Too gory in part for me. However, it does let you know what it might have been like living in this time period. The narrator did an excellent job reading the various parts. You can feel the empathy, etc. in her voice. After I finish the 3rd book, I probably will not finish this serious.
