    The Jewish Audio Bible is a masterful delivery of the Kol Menachem Chumash (Gutnick Edition) - a much loved, best-selling translation of the Five Books of Moses, with readings from the Prophets (Haftarah cycle). The Jewish Audio Bible skillfully weaves classic Rabbinic interpretations into the translation, offering a timeless perception of the sacred text's multiple layers.

    What disappointed you about The Jewish Audio Bible?

    As an Orthodox Jew, I expected better. Cheesy elevator music between each chapter along with a narrator that often uses an immature "angry" voice for the voice of G-d completely ruined it for me. Why can't he just read the Torah in a mono-tone voice? That's all I wanted. No music needed. No acting needed.

    Dave Elliot is about to have a very bad day at the office. This morning, just as Dave has finished knotting his tie, his boss comes into the office with a gun in his hand, prepared to murder him. From this moment onward, everyone Dave Elliot runs into today will be trying to kill him. And he has no idea why...

    What did you like best about this story?

    The lack of realism was hilarious. I quote: "He was back on the Long Island Expressway racing west toward New York. The speedometer registered 85 miles per hour."

    Anyone who lives on Long Island would know that to "race" on the LIE is impossible- the thing is a 24/7 parking lot. Lol that was the most implausible part of the story!


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator had only two voices. Most of the people sounded exactly the same. Moreover, the voices sounded cheesy and weird. The music that started playing every 5 min. didn't help either.

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    What did you love best about 11-22-63?

    When the hole is first discovered


    Have you listened to any of Craig Wasson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    After listening to Craig Wasson's voice for all these hours, whenever I see a photo of Stephen King or read an interview from him I associate Wasson's Voice to King's words.


    Any additional comments?

    The only part I didn't like was Wasson's voice reading Sadie. It sounded like Saidie was an old man. They should have hired a woman to read the female characters.
