The ease of listening to this man tell his life story. He is very likeable, very funny and I was sad when it ended.
None compares! It is my first comedy biography (I love history) so it set the standard high.
no. I will have to download them!
I highly recommend! Love. Love. Love.
Oh, and try not to drink coffee when you are listening to this. I spit more coffee that way!!!
The characters were great—protagonists and antagonists alike were complicated and engaging. The pace built deliciously and kept me on the edge of my seat.
There were several pivotal moments in the book (which is always good) and gave the book wonderful twists and turns which kept me running to keep up with the characters and their struggles. I do have to say that the two most shocking moments were very different. One was in an actively dangerous and exciting time, full of action and frightened me. The other was quiet, peaceful but also horrifying and gave you a sense of utter despair. They were both incredible in the emotional buzz they give!
There were two. The female teacher who befriended the protagonist was wonderful, broken and steadfast. The other was one of the "bad guys" at first and developed beautifully into a more complex character during the story. I will leave you to find out who he was.
Theis book was bought on a whim and was also my first in the "zombie" genre. But I would not peg it into that category. It goes soaring above this genre and was an outstanding thriller and a great performance. I simply loved it. Yes, I am listening to it again right now.
There are a lot of them! I just really enjoyed driving through town with my eyes wide open and my jaw dropped -- I learned things I never knew I wanted to know. Loved it. So engaging and delivered with a lovely dry wit. Great!
Amazingly informative and surprisingly funny. Mary Roach get the award for amazing me! Wonderful read with the great audio talent of Shelly Frasier! Highly recommend!
I enjoyed the factual basis of the book. The authors wrapped the reader in the culture and time of Jesus. Although I have known this story since a toddler, I was fully engaged and surprised by the emotional effect it had on me.
I was moved by two events in the book. The first was John the baptist portrayal and his death. Second was, of course, the crucifixion. The pace of the story was perfect with the intensity of the days leading up to his death. I was so in awe of the raw facts and how they were read (I had the audible version) that I had to pull my car over as I was unable to drive while listening to the story without being so emotionally rapt. I wept. It was a great book.
I have read all three of Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard's "Killing" series and enjoyed them all, but Killing Jesus was exceptional, perhaps because Jesus was exceptional. Many people have come to see him as a mythical character and this book dispels that. It reminds us all of the incredible and brave things he did. Thank you for that.
