Not a masterpiece, but entertaining.
I honestly finished this book because, as an optimist, I kept hoping it would improve. There were only three characters that I liked, all the others I hated hearing about. Although the story does enlighten the reader to the mood of the era, it would be more fun listening to a book of history,
An interesting way to present the opposing feelings of those who live in Isreal and its borders.
I really enjoyed listening to this story. All the characters (and voices) were great. I really did not want it to end.
Madden's voice is monotonious, but he does hold you with the history.
This audio should be approached more as the lectures they are and not as a continuous stream such as a novel. This allows you to overcome the voice deficit and concentrate on the material presented.
I was unsure about listening to this book about Christ due to the author's previous books.
I loved it and have listened to it twice. Rice has woven history and even some of the gnostic works into this story about the dawning of Christ's awareness of his identity as both God and Man.
Enjoyed both the story and the narrator.
The voice of the narrator is superb. Very funny!
I enjoyed this wonderful book. I never tired of listening to the fate of its heroine Dorothea and the inhabitants of Middlemarch. The reader's voice was excellent.
WOW! This was incredibly long! Very enjoyable despite Ayn Rand's moralizing and extremely long-winded speeches.
