    In Blasphemy: How the Religious Right is Hijacking the Declaration of Independence, author Alan Dershowitz proves that no relation exists between the Declaration of Independences Creator and Natures God, on the one hand, and the Judeo-Christian God of the Old and New Testaments, on the other hand

    Overall

    The reader does a very good job. The material deals with pressing public issues and therefore should be read in a neutral tone; this he does. But when he moves to the next subsection of a chapter and reads the title there's no pause, no notice. It comes at me so suddenly I'm mentally playing catchup. This is not the reader's fault. It's the editor's fault.(I've edited and reconstructed a fair amount of audio, so I know.) Just 1.5 SECONDS of dead air before the subsection title would be enough to alert the listener that a new thought was coming along. It all runs together otherwise. Not good.

    In the distant future, society has crumbled. Dark forces now rule the land, keeping all humans under their oppressive thumbs.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator's sing-songy delivery suggests he thinks all fantasy books are children's stories. This is serious, dark fiction, not Story Time in first grade, and it deserves to be read straight.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Raymond Todd’s performances?

    I doubt it.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Absolutely I would see it, if it were made by someone who took it seriously.
