    Here is an audio edition of the sacred text of the Latter-Day Saint movement that followers believe contains the writings of ancient prophets who lived on the American continent from approximately 2200 B.C. to A.D. 421. A fascinating listen for religious scholars and denominational adherents alike.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Well except for all the time I spent listening to the author repeating the numbers of the chapter and verse.


    What didn’t you like about Sean Criden’s performance?

    Very flat. It would be a fantastic audio book if it had been done like a performance. But it sounded like a librarian reading a dictionary.


    Do you think The Book of Mormon needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I'd like to read the 2/3rds of the Golden Plates that were sealed, yes


    Any additional comments?

    I really hope you redo this. I would be enthralled if this was done without the verses and with a passionate perfomer narrating it. This was a disappointment.

  • Area 51: An Uncensored History of America's Top Secret Military Base

    Story
    (1002)

    Myths and hypotheses about Area 51 have long abounded, thanks to the intense secrecy enveloping it. Some claim it is home to aliens, underground tunnel systems, and nuclear facilities. Others believe that the lunar landing was filmed there. The prevalence of these rumors stems from the fact that no credible insider has ever divulged the truth about his time inside the base. Until now.

    Story

    I thought it was well laid out, well narrated, and fascinating. She presents the strongest case possible for her theory. I have read some criticism that her story is uncorroborated, but in this case, it cannot be. She explains her theory and then explains why her theory takes into account other incorrect theories. I highly recommend this book to any intellectual reader.
