    "Holy Bible, NKVJ"

    I found the listening experience to be very good with this recording. The New King James version is a modern, easily understood translation of the Bible, and the music and "actors" used in the recording added value and interest, without being distracting. My only complaint with the content is that 1 Corinthians 15 appeared between 1 Corinthians 3 and 4 instead of where it should have been. I thought it odd and perhaps a glitch, so I downloaded it a couple more times, once for listening on my computer and once for use on my ZEN Vision:M mp3 player, but all recordings were mixed up with the placement of this chapter. Still, a very worthwhile investment. My complaint with the format is a little more frustrating: I like to have smaller "pieces" of my files, so I can jump quickly to specific parts. With the huge downloads for listening on the computer or mp3 player, it's extremely difficult to find a specific location. It would be so very helpful to have breaks set at chapter (or at the least, book) marks throughout the recording.

    "Uplifting!!!!"

    The narration is superb. The way it is dramanized makes it so much easier to understand.

    "Great Version"

    As I am fond of the NKJV, being that it is the version I study personally and in church, I was quite pleased to find it here. The use of different voices is not distracting in the least and actually made the listening experience more enjoyable. I'm not a big fan of dramatized, performance audiobooks, but I made and exception with this one and do not regret it. I will also be making an exception to my preferences when they come out with the Old Testament.
    Great version. You definitely want to get this one.

    "Excellent reading of a great translation"

    I have heard many audio versions of the Scriptures. The KJV read by Alexander Scourby to me is the standard by which all others are compared. This rates a 9 out of 10. The use of multiple voices is effective and not distracting as in other attempts to dramatize the reading. I look forward to the Old Testament being offered.

    "Just what I was looking for"

    Well, would prefer KJV but NKJV will work too. Did not want to go with the James Earl Jones version due to the reviews it was getting and I did not like the sample. I listened to the sample for this one and OUTSTANDING. Would highly recommend.

    "Best Audio Bible Ever!!!"

    I have listended to more audio Bibles than I can count in every major translation (including both NIV Bibles listed on Audible). THIS PRESENTATION IS THE BEST I have ever heard in any of the translations. The main reader is outstanding. The voices and sound effects are enough to keep message interesting and clear without distraction.

    "Don't care at all for narrator"

    The narrator speaks much too quickly and without feeling. The music that sometimes occurs in the background is stupid but not too distracting.

    "Good reading, plot needs work"

    The story is a little weak, with a number of plot holes and contradictions. Many of the characters are one-dimensional characatures, portrayed as pure evil or pure good - very hard to relate to as a member of the less black & white world that we live in. I realize that many novels require a certain suspension of disbelieve, but this one just asks too much of me. That said, the voice actors were very good and easy to listen to.

    "Dull, one-dimensional lead character"

    I found the lead character to be rather boring. I never got a feel for who he was -- only that he stole some ideas first proposed by the Prophet Isiah, who was writing mostly metaphorically, and then to the most literal and extreme level.

    The protagonist also apparently has some "issues" with water, first hijacking a leadership role from John the Baptist, indulging in a foot-washing fetish and then giving some questionable, if not unsanitary, advice regarding not washing the hands.

    The ending bordered on science fiction, which seemed OK within the context of this book -- a sort of Magic Realism backdrop (not as skillfully done as a Salman Rushdie, certainly) to an ancient drama.

    The point of view of different narrators would work better if they truly held different points of view. I suspect some heavy editing was involved.

    Needs more work.
