    "Eye Opening Revelations!"

    This was an incredible account of a small town and the not-so-small goings-on. Frank Peretti does an excellent job of giving us an insight into the spiritual realm and its impact on the physical realm. Riviting and entertaining. Worth every cent spent and every minute listening.

    "Bad recording"
    Any additional comments?

    The book was good but the recording was not. Bad echo through the whole book. :(

    "This Present Darkness"

    I loved this book. It gives an interesting insight on how the spirit relm works. It also lets you know how important it is to have a relationship with God. If you don't have a prayer life, you need to start.

    "Will be a Christian classic!"

    A very good book and the reader did an excellent job. I am looking forward to listening to Mr. Peretti's sequel "Piercing the Darkness"

    "Excellent reading of a wonderful story."

    Like all well written books, this one need a great narrator. Well, you certainly got a really great reader. His rich voice coupled with the endless variety of a carts, colloquialisms (?) make this book so special. May Gods richest blessing continue to fall on Mr. Frank and Mr. Jack.

    "terrible audio"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    book, maybe. This audio version, never


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jack Sondericker?

    Mr. Sondericker is fine, but I really like Kevin King or Tim Gregory


    Any additional comments?

    There is a terrible sound in the background constantly. It sounds exactly like random scraping of a fork on a china plate, or a bit like listening to a worn cassette with the sounds from the other side screeching through. In addition it sounds like it was recorded over a speaker phone, not in a studio. No professional company would have put this on the market, it would not have survived internal review. Yet it is sold at full price. If it can not be remade, it should be sold at deep discount with a disclaimer that it is a 'factory second'. I see now that other reviewers years ago said the same thing, so why hasn't this been fixed. I have stuck it out through chapter 14. I do not know if I will make it further. Likely I will return it. I have seen different versions on the market, an unabridged by Oasis Audio, and an abridged read by the author. Perhaps Audible should look into carrying those versions.
