    "Liked it"

    I liked the fact that the author was also the narrarator. He's able to add emphasis where someone may not have picked up on the pages.
    I have listened to several other narrators and I think Frank Peretti did a fine job. I did find the soundeffects at the begining of each chapter a little distracting.

    "Fantastic!"

    A wild adventure! I was never bored and it kept me with my muscles tense in a lot of places. I highly recommend for anyone who is a scifi monster fan.

    "Just OK"

    What was hard to get past was the narrarator doing the voice of one of the female characters. It almost made it unbearable but I got past it. The story is just so-so and I am surprised because the Piercing the Darkness, etc. books were so good.

    "Good story but a little disappointing"

    Good story but I was expecting a spiritual allegory. I kept waiting for an analogy to be drawn but it never happened. Interesting and enjoyable story though.

    "Read by author"

    We listened to this while on a road trip and loved the suspense. Having it read by the author made for a thrilling story as he knew by heart how he wanted it all to sound. so talented to give different voices to the characters.

    "Ugh"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I couldn't get very far into it. Not certain if it is for children or not.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Frank Peretti again?

    I have already purchased a few of his books. I liked The Oath enough to get more. Hope I will not be disappointed in the rest.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Perhaps a different narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    I was shocked to see this was narrated by the author. It didn't sound like a child's book in the description. However, it is read that way. I found it too annoying to get past 2 hours.

    "Harry and the Hendersons!!!"

    This was a good listen! The fear factor was really enhanced in an audible version, compared to the written word. Suspicious big foot sightings have been whispered about, folk are being maimed and an evil scientist is up to no good...I wouldn't go down to those woods today!
