    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Without a doubt. This is an enduring masterpiece.


    Have you listened to any of Michael A. Smith’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have. This one was just as good, if not better.

    Siddhartha himself.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a delightful story, and even though it lacks the monsters and gore and technology of more modern stories, it endures for a reason.

    Griffin is a scientist who theorizes that if a person's refractive index is changed to exactly that of air, and his body does not absorb or reflect light, then he will be invisible. He successfully carries out this procedure on himself but cannot become visible again, becoming mentally unstable as a result.

    The passionate account of a young man's growing awareness of his own identity, of his involvement in the secret and dangerous world of petty crime, and how, influenced by a precocious schoolmate, he rebels against convention and discovers not only the great joy of independence, but his own new powers for good and evil.

    What does Michael A. Smith bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I read the book in college, and Mr. Smith's voice makes the story flow. One can listen to the story without any distraction.

    Story

    Most of the human race believes in a life beyond the here-and-now. Religious writings have put such beliefs into words - often esoteric, mysterious words - for thousands of years. Among such writings are those which form the Christian Bible: the 66 books commonly called the Old and New Testaments. Strangely, the Bible doesn't say much about what the life which lies beyond is like - that is, how it is actually lived.

    Story
    Where does The Last Bridge rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Among the very best


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character was, of course, the hero, who struggles with his own faith while experiencing the very fulfillment of it. Also the Angel Rynniel, who teams up with the hero near the end of the story.


    What about Michael A. Smith’s performance did you like?

    The performance was articulate, clear, well-paced, and he did a remarkable job with all of the character voices, especially the non-human ones.


    Any additional comments?

    It is interesting to note that the author has a doctor of Divinity degree, and the incredible breadth of details are all well within biblical teaching, despite the fictional nature of the story.
