    Story
    (226)

    During a train trip from Chicago to Texas in the late 1940s, A.W. Tozer began to write The Pursuit of God. He wrote all night, and when the train arrived at his destination, the rough draft was done. The depth of this book has made it an enduring favorite.

    Michael says: "Great classic book to include in your library!"
    "Maybe it was just over my head"

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If the author could have more carefully explained what he was talking about I might have been able to follow. As it was, I feel that all I got were vaguely pious platitudes and generalities.


    What could A. W. Tozer have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Remove the anti-catholic remarks from his concluding chapter.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Narration was good.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    As I said above, this author may simply be too advanced for me.

  • A Feast for Crows: A Song of Ice and Fire: Book 4

    • UNABRIDGED (33 hrs and 56 mins)
    • By George R. R. Martin
    • Narrated By Roy Dotrice
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Story
    (9478)

    Few books have captivated the imagination and won the devotion and praise of readers and critics everywhere as has George R. R. Martin’s monumental epic cycle of high fantasy that began with A Game of Thrones. Now, in A Feast for Crows, Martin delivers the long-awaited fourth book of his landmark series, as a kingdom torn asunder finds itself at last on the brink of peace . . . only to be launched on an even more terrifying course of destruction.

    Pi says: "Jarring change in Dotrice's performance"
    "We are owed an apology."

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

    Fans of this series will read this book no matter what but be advised that disappointments are waiting for you.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    There is a surprising lack of action until the last quarter.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The voices developed by Dotrice for books 1-3 were wonderful. I have read no explanation for why they were abandoned.
