The quality of this audio book did not seem as good as the first book. The narrator was good; however, you could hear her swallow, etc. The story line seemed to end abruptly. Still an enjoyable listen thou. This is the second book I have listened to from this author. Enjoyable so far. I'm going to download the third book to finish the series.
As an old history major, I can appreciate how difficult and depressing a subject this is. Toland not only writes very well, interspersing the narrative with interesting quotes and anecdotes, but manages to write very objectively. He succeeds in giving an understanding of what happened and to an extent, why, leaving partisan rancor to others.
Extraordinary insight into a little-known chapter of WW2 and into American foreign policy in that region and time.
Pam Ward does a solid job as reader.
This was a very touching and moving story about forgiveness.
The narrator did an excellent job (wish she also narrated the Author's notes at the end of the book) in depicting each of the characters. She made me laugh and cry.
I would have given this story a 5 star rating if the author did not leave you hanging at the end about one of the characters in the book.
Overall the story was fairly good. However, predictable. Parts of the story were very touching. Somewhat disappointed in the narration. I do enjoy Christina Moore. However, I never understand when you have two narrators - a male and female - why the male can't do the male parts and vice-a-versa. Other than that it was a nice listen.
At points this book was very interesting, and kept me wanting to finish to see how it ended. However, I didn't appreciate the vulgarity and using the Lord's name in vain through out the book. I also didn't appreciate the fact that the author made about every main character live an immoral lifestyle.
Would have enjoyed this more if it had not been for all the repetition. ........
Narrator did a fantastic job of distinguishing between all the characters. I would have rated the story five stars if it had not been for the author ending the story very abruptly and left you wondering if there is going to be a sequel - some unanswered questions. Very much enjoyed the story line.
Found the book to be interesting. Author's narration was fairly good. I thought he went into his next chapters rather fast.
I have listened to the entire series. The main character from first book drags out into all three books before her story has a good ending. The material in this last book was poorly written, and very unbelievable. I won't mention the details, as I don't want to spoil the story line for anyone who still might want to get it. Although this narrator does a good job, it was very disappointing that the same narrator that did the first two did not narrate this one.
1. Could not see anywhere on Audible's website what version of the Bible this was done in. Very disappointed in the translation.
2. Would be helpful if the audio bible was broke down in books (not parts), etc. so it would be easier to select a certain book you wanted to listen too.
3. Also this particular audio book shows Angela Bassett as the main narrator. However, the main narration was done by a male - not a female.
4. I found the voice for Moses dull and very irritating.
5. Some the background music grated on my nerves (especially the high-pitched strings)
6. I find it extremely interesting that the group who put this audiobook together used various voices (including female!) for David in the book of Psalms.
If it wasn't for all the aforementioned I might would have given this four stars for overall.
