Oh yes. I like to listen to books like this just before I drift off to sleep. The ideas were stimulating and the voice droned a bit so it helped me to fall asleep in no time.
Basic ideas of philosophy that were reasonably clearly expressed.
I would recommend the author, but probably not this particular book if my friend had read or heard any of Ehrman's previous books/lectures. Unfortunately, there isn't all that much that is new in this lecture series that he hasn't already said in his previous work. For new Ehrman listeners it is good, though not his best work.
Any of Ehrmans other works. His Historical Jesus work is very good, as is Misquoting Jesus and Jesus Interrupted. If you are interested in early Christian history then I think his "From Jesus to Constantine" is a good bet.
Well you can feel his passion and enthusiasm coming through. I think he would be a very good lecturer in person, though he is not a brilliant orator.
Somewhere near the bottom I am afraid. The concept was very interesting, and some of the characters were reasonably well developed (others less so), but the story was ultimately unfulfilling. The story was decently set up, and could have had a decent conclusion, but ift fell a bit flat. Also, I found myself not really believing the characters motivations in the end.
I enjoyed learning a bit about that phase of the Star Wars universe.
Fantastic as always. His performance carries the book. There is no better narrator of Star Wars books - or any books for that matter
I wouldn't discourage others from buying the audiobook. I did enjoy some aspects of the book, and it may be that others will not have the same reaction to the conclusion that I did. It will please those with an interest in Star Wars, which I imagine will be most of the people reading the review
The performance by Marc Thomson is very good, perhaps even better than that in the first audiobook.
A bit foreshadowed by the first half of the book. The author was definitely going for a symmetry with the original trilogy.
Mara and Luke rescuing Tallon was very reminiscent of the first Star Wars movie, perhaps a little too much
not really that kind of book I'm afraid
I think of the three stories it is the weakest, but it does have its good points. It is well worth listening to because the third part in the trilogy is very good. Hopefully when they make the next Star Wars movies they use these books for the screenplay,
