    "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.

    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.

    "Great story, great performance, weird echo"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This book is great. It's been a favorite of mine for many years. The reader really does very well. Dramatic, clear speech, just all around great. The only problem is that there is an odd tinny sound to the recording through the whole book that I couldn't get rid of even by switching devices, adjusting the equalizer, nothing worked. It isn't bad if you are listening with headphones or earbuds, but it is really difficult to ignore on larger speakers. That was my only complaint. You can still hear the story just fine though, and it wasn't annoying enough to keep me from listening to the whole story! I'd still recommend it!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Marshall Hogan. I love his fierce personality, he defends his family fiercely, loves them fiercely, everything he does is wholehearted.


    Have you listened to any of Jack Sondericker’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to any of Jack's other performances, but I am definately a fan now. He is great at doing the different voices, makes it easy to distinguish which character is speaking, and the voice for each character is consistent throughout the entire book. Very well done.


    Was This Present Darkness worth the listening time?

    Definately worth the time. Excellent story. Encouraging, inspirational, interesting, full of details, but not so much that it becomes tedious.


    Any additional comments?

    Great book!

    "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"
