    "Shallow & Cliche'"
    Overall

    A shallow, unimaginative novel. The plot is soooo cliche'; the protagonists are almost as unlikeable as the villains; and, the ending is weak. The only reason I gave it two stars is because the narrator does a fine job. However, good narration cannot save a poor novel.

    Story

    The Fellowship of the Ring, the first volume in the trilogy, tells of the fateful power of the One Ring. It begins a magnificent tale of adventure that will plunge the members of the Fellowship of the Ring into a perilous quest and set the stage for the ultimate clash between the powers of good and evil.

    "Fantastic story, mediocre narration"

    Story

    Obviously the story is fantastic; however, the narration is mediocre at best. The narrator constantly draws deep breaths and smacks his lips during the reading. These sounds are annoying and distracting. Also, the narrator distinguishes little between character voices and he has very little dramatic range or sense. Lou Diamond Phillips has been the best narrator I have heard. If he is a 10, this narrator is a 5. Nevertheless, it's still worth the listen and the purchase if $12 or less.

  • All of Grace

    "To him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness." Spurgeon's masterpiece on grace from Romans 4:5 is an outstanding description of God's love and unmerited grace to us. It is one of the clearest examples of salvation by grace ever written. Spurgeon's masterpiece is one the finest expositions ever penned on faith, repentance, and regeneration.

    "Powerful, intelligent, insightful"
    Overall

    Spurgeon presents a powerful, intelligent, and insightful call to be reconciled to God and find true life. Direct, thought-provoking, heart-penetrating, passionate, and loving without compromise. Vance is excellent in his narration - with tone and cadence that demonstrates understanding of the author's intent, that illuminates the text, and that adds value to the experience. This truly is a must for the Christian and for the seeker. One of the most rewarding books I have ever listened to or read.
