Flight to Eden: Cradleland Chronicles #1 | [Douglas Hirt]

Flight to Eden: Cradleland Chronicles #1

A dark power is at work, intent on gaining complete control of the CradleLand, the birthplace of the still-young world. All that stands in the Power's way is one troublesome line of humans: descendants of Seth. They are of the only remaining clan clinging to an all-but-dead faith. And yet it's from that faith that a prophecy threatens all plans of world dominion.

Publisher's Summary

A dark power is at work, intent on gaining complete control of the CradleLand, the birthplace of the still-young world. All that stands in the Power's way is one troublesome line of humans: descendants of Seth. They are of the only remaining clan clinging to an all-but-dead faith. And yet it's from that faith that a prophecy threatens all plans of world dominion: A promise, spoken from the heart of Eden, warning of a human son yet to come - a man who would strike back with a crushing blow.

The darkness is determined to stop that from happening. This redeemer must be born a human, so an incredible scheme is launched to prevent the prophecy from coming to pass. First, pollute the human bloodline; and second...kill the only one who could be humanity's deliverance.

This is the first audiobook in the Cradleland Series.

What the Critics Say

"Michael Taylor is an enthusiastic and spirited storyteller. He draws on a seemingly limitless store of voices for the many characters." (AudioFile)

    "Great story, buy the book instead."

    If you. like. the way. I punctuate. you will. love the. narration.
    Michael Taylor is a terrible narrator. I literally would get a pressure headache with the way he reads the story. He was four voices: Deep and slow, pausing between EVERY word; His normal voice which would do fine reading a newspaper; a high-pitched, whiney voice, like that of an old miner from '49 gold rush; and a Minnesota grandma voice (don'cha knoo). His voice is an injustice to an audible subscriber and to this book. I feel ripped-off.

    "Couldn't tolerate the narration"
    What disappointed you about Flight to Eden?

    The narration is AWFUL. I did read the other reviews before I purchased this book; I just thought that people were being too picky and critical. Nope. It is just threat bad. Imagine listening to a brain damaged William Shatner reading a book out loud for the first time - not the first time out loud, the first time EVER... for 16 HOURS. I made it through 20 minutes and quit. SERIOUSLY.

    Story
    "Wow, this was unexpected."

    I ran across this story by accident, but I really, really enjoyed this story. I can't wait until my boys are bigger so I can read it to them. It took while to get used to the narrator - too many pregnant pauses. But I still had a good time listening to this.

    Story
    "The most original story since Gen:9"
    Where does Flight to Eden rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Flight to Eden rank under those books I would listen to again and again every few years or so. Its creative view of the beginning of history is so believable, its becomes as real as watching the news. For Christians and sceptics alike, its a great book!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Rone is perhaps the most fictional character with his extra ordinary size and strength, but given the competition, he turns out to be a very useful guy to have around! He puts a bit of "action thriller" into to a story with otherwise very normal characters.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narration is absolutely atrocious. Though the narrator has a great voice and sounds like the type of friend one should have, his voice is incapable of variation that does not sound forced. NOBODY, not an angel, or demon, man or women is likely to speak with the tone and cadence of his characters.Their voices almost make one dislike them. In fact it does. This narrator is an unfortunate choice for an - admittedly - difficult job.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This is the first review I ever wrote, because I would very much like to send a copy to some friends. But like me, they may make many false starts because the narration does not draw one to keep listening. As this is the second time Im listening to the series, I know the narrator was changed in the rest of the series. Perhaps the first book could be re- narrated? I will buy it!


    Any additional comments?

    Its a fascinating story and I would love to hear what happened after the flood...

    "The Story is Worth Enduring the Horrible Narration"
    Any additional comments?

    I almost didn't purchase this book because of the poor reviews on the narration, but I noticed that there was a different narrator for the other books in the series and I thought the content looked interesting. I am glad I did purchase it.The narration was truly horrible, easily the worse that I've heard on Audible, but by the end of the first half of the download I had grown somewhat numb to it. The story itself was really good. I liked the way the author set real, believable characters in a plausible representation of the pre-flood world. I found the read thought provoking and enjoyable. I guess you could buy the book and bypass the narration, but either way, it was worth the purchase price.

    "Superb Story"

    This is a biblically accurate novel set in fiction. I didn't want this Trilogy to end.

    Did Flight to Eden inspire you to do anything?

    Any additional comments?

    It's a good story even if your not a believer in God. If you can't get past it being that it is fiction I feel sorry for your Library. It's gonna miss out on some good and entertning story's

    I HAVE BEEN AN AUDIOPHILE FOR 20 YEARS AND THIS STORY IS A WORTHY LISTEN. THE NARRATOR TRANSPORTS THE LISTENER IN TO THE AUTHOR'S SPACE IN TIME AND AN HOUR SEEMS FILLED TO THE BRIM, ALMOST BEYOND 60 MINUTES. THERE IS THE MAGIC. THANK YOU. I WILL DO IT AGAIN.
