  • The Guardian

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 13 mins)
    • By Dee Henderson
    • Narrated By Tom Stechschulte

    Dee Henderson is one of today's most popular inspirational novelists. She fills each work with tightly woven suspense and touching struggles of faith. Henderson has received many awards, including the RITA, National Reader's Choice Award, and Bookseller's Best Award. The Guardian is a Christy Award winner.

    Deborah says: "Excellent story and narration."
    "Love These print or audible"

    I've loved the O'Malleys since I read the books some years ago. I have been put off, from time to time, with the lack of really well-written Christian fiction; at times I've felt that authors were published in the Christian market simply because they mentioned God and avoided vulgarity rather than for the excellence of their writing. Not so with Dee Henderson--her stories are well-thought out, and her characters multidimensional. The protagonists exhibit flaws and redemption in a realistic way and there are twists and turns to keep mystery enthusiasts engrossed as well as romantic moments for those who are looking for a love story.

    This is the first of the series that I've listened to so far. The one complaint I've had is that the narrator tends to use a nasal tone to indicate a female speaking. I am sure there are great challenges in making a deep voice, such as this narrator has, sound feminine, but I am a little put off by the whiny vibe I get. That being said, I find the story to flow quite well and the narrator maintains excellent pacing. I will listen to the entire series, I'm certain.

  • Courageous: A Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 52 mins)
    • By Randy Alcorn, Alex Kendrick, Stephen Kendrick
    • Narrated By Roger Mueller
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Four men, one calling: to serve and protect. As law enforcement officers, Adam Mitchell, Nathan Hayes, and their partners willingly stand up to the worst the world can offer. Yet at the end of the day, they face a challenge that none of them are truly prepared to tackle: fatherhood. While they consistently give their best on the job, good enough seems to be all they can muster as dads. But they’re quickly discovering that their standard is missing the mark. They know that God desires to turn the hearts of fathers to their children, but their children are beginning to drift....

    Jennifer says: "Excellent!!"
    "Excellent Narration"
    Which character – as performed by Roger Mueller – was your favorite?

    In my opinion, Roger Mueller did a fabulous job with all of the characters; he has a facile voice that made it so easy to distinguish each person. Above that, not a single voice was grating to my ears. I will look for other books by this narrator.

    Any additional comments?

    I most often find a book much more satisfying than a movie because it takes more than a couple of hours to know a character well. While I can't remember experiencing a movie novel-ized in this fashion, I thoroughly enjoyed the authors' efforts in this case. I wanted to say "more, please!"

    I don't often write reviews, but I so enjoyed this story and this presentation that I hope to encourage others to give it a try.
