    You are not alone, says Part I of The Urantia Book. The cosmos teems with trillions of inhabited planets, heavenly worlds and spirit personalities. You are not here by accident. Divine intelligence created the human race for divine purposes.

    What would have made The Urantia Book (Part 1 and Part 2) better?

    I can't even imagine what would make this book better other than it never being written. It was hour after hour of sanctimonious, over-elaborated religulous psychobabble. I'd rather stab my ears with an icepick than listen to another hour of it. I actually contemplated counting the superfluous rendundant adjectives and descriptors in each sentence--it was truly stunning how many words were employed just in the interest of telling the listener how impossible it was to adequately describe in human word-symbols the glory of God the Father in all His omnipotent supremacy of self-awareness fulfilling the infinite potentiality of His primordial state of vastness in His utterly self-directing and self-completing loving free will. And that was an understatement.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I just couldn't get through even 3 hours of it.


    Any additional comments?

    The two reviews posted were very misleading. I have a hard time believing that no one else was off-put by the inaccessible language, redundancy and general incomprehensibility of the content.

    (2112)

    Charlene Rosalind Carter Grant believes that she will be murdered in four days. And she wants Boston’s top detective to handle her death investigation. It will be up close and personal. No evidence of forced entry, no sign of struggle. Charlie tells a chilling story: Each year at 8:00 p.m. on January 21, a woman has died. The victims have been childhood best friends from a small town in New Hampshire; the motive remains unknown. Now only one friend, Charlie, remains to count down her final hours.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    It was fine as filler listening material for awhile. But nothing out of the mainstream, a bit predictable, and characters that weren't very interesting.


    What aspect of Kirsten Potter’s performance would you have changed?

    Her sarcastic, under-the-breath cop voice was so monotone, I truly got tired of hearing it. Some variation from the gritty seen-it-all cop stereotype would have been refreshing.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall it was entertaining enough to get me through my long commute for a week or so. But not something I would have sought out.
