    I liked how the story was able to pull me in immersing me deep into the book itself; plots, arcs, villains and each character that brought it all to life.


    What did you like best about this story?

    There was nothing that I did not like or find enjoyable about the listening experience.


    What about Alfred Molina and full cast ’s performance did you like?

    All actors were fantastic and believable. Closing my eyes, I could have swore that I was sitting in a movie theater listening to a Blockbuster movie with the screen in my mind. This audiobook has everything! Action, drama, sound effects, and an outstanding full character cast!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This was a book outside of my regular reading genre, But, I found myself enjoying the listening experience so much, I will be adding more of this audiobook experience (Dramatic presentations) to my, "To Listen" list. One great adventure of excitement and action brought to life!

    This is a listening experience that you do not want to miss! With a full cast, the narrators do the book justice. They will pull you into the book as they take you along for every twist and turn. You will not be disappointed!

Horror stories to scare their children are told about the Unbelievers on the other side of Tresco. But not all is what it seems.

    The Gospel According to Breaking Bad takes a thoroughly Christian look at AMC's popular and critical TV hit. Covering such weighty theological issues like identity, death, justice, power, fate, free will, and the gospel itself, listeners will be coerced into thinking more deeply about the universal questions Breaking Bad asks. In sections covering the colors and metaphors of Breaking Bad, fans will also come to a further appreciation for one of the most well-done TV series in recent history.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I have only started watching the series Breaking Bad. Atwood does a fine job of explaining the direction of the show and of the characters themselves. The moral issues covered and the realities of day and life are here along with the realities that are faced in our own world. Atwood does not try to answer if the morals presented in the show are good/bad right/wrong, but instead allows the reader/listener to answer those questions for themselves. the world around us is not pretty, that would only be true to those who wish to turn a blind eye. Rather, Atwood reminds us that the choices we make in life, well that can also determine the life that we live. It's that fine line that separates us from right and wrong, and also the good and evil around us.


    Which character – as performed by Alex Hyde-White – was your favorite?

    As always, Mr. Alex Hyde-White has a wonderful range of voices and does a superb job. His timing and pace are perfect and he breathes life into the characters, just as he has done with this performance.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are a fan of the show, this is a great companion book to have.The authors writing is exceptional as the words come together very well to form a story that is both understandable and unique in its own way. The narrator has a deep and smokey voice, great tone that will pull you into the story.

    One hundred years ago, people were forced to retreat to the seas...Chey's ocean home seems lovely on the outside, with its rainbow-hued reefs and soul-tingling Whale-song, but the beauty hides secrets and despair. One thousand blues can be too many…Some people cannot live amid them all. After losing her parents and best friend, Chey would do anything to fight off the apathy that threatens her: swim in a brood of jellies, break her sector's rules, and even breach the Surface. A forbidden encounter sets Chey on a desperate search for a way to save her people... and herself.
