    "Excellent"

    This is a great audiobook. I listen to it on the bus ride into work each morning. The narrator speaks clearly, reciting each mystery. I highly recommend.

    "fellowship of prayer"
    What made the experience of listening to The Holy Rosary the most enjoyable?

    i was involved in a prayer that was being directed to our lady in a beautiful sounding voice that held my attention to the prayer which made it easier to keep my place and get my devotion of the rosary done in a more attentive manner.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mary..............it was a prayer to her.


    What about Eric Roland Martin’s performance did you like?

    beautiful voice


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

    attentive


    Any additional comments?

    "Good for meditate"

    It helped me to remember the rosary during commuting.The voice of the reader is good and it gives you time for meditate.

    "Very d/isappointing"
    What did you like best about The Holy Rosary? What did you like least?

    The narrated voice came across to me as very stiff and unfeeling. I am a Catholic and have prayed the Rosary all of my life. This version omits the small prayer between the Glory Be to the Father and the announcement of the next decade and the subsequent Lord's Prayer and Hail Marys. If the narrator understood this prayer he would have instilled in his delivery a softening of tone and some love into his voice, but still with respect for what it is.. I bought this recording so that I could listen and pray the Rosary at various times of the day, but find this recording very difficult and unpleasant to listen to.

    The order of prayers should be, from the beginning of the beads at the crucifix

    The Sign of the Cross
    The Apostles Creed,
    The Lords Prayer,
    Three Hail Marys,
    then now and between each decade -
    The Glory be to the Father,
    this small prayer "Oh my Jesus forgive us our sins,save us from the fire of hell,
    lead all souls to heaven, especially those in need of mercy"
    The announcement of each decade,
    the Lords Prayer and then subsequent decade of Hail Marys.

    The final prayers at the end are correct.

    I do hope that someone will take notice of this review.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Maybe a change of delivery and a true knowledge of the order of prayers.


    Did The Holy Rosary inspire you to do anything?

    This recording was very disappointing I do not want to listen to it again.

    "Very helpfull"

    As a girl who grew up with a mother who was forced to do the rosary EVERY DAY as a child, I was a novice to the rosary. I needed something to help give me focus and flow during adoration. I use this audio recording to stay on track and mindful. Each set of mysteries is done as its own complete rosary so I used bookmarks to move from one set of mysteries to another as I usually do three rosaries in the hour. I do put the narrator speed on 1.25, which I think helps make it more conversational, not lecture- like in speed. Highly recommend, particularly if you are new to the practice.

    "This version keeps me focused"

    I have neveer been good at praying the rosary. This version keeps me focused, and my mind doesn't wander. Martin is very British, and that may bug some people. But, for me, his very matter of fact and rather commanding voice work. I use this most days.

    If you are looking for reflections with the rosary, then this is not for you. But I stop the player at the beginning of each decade and pray for what I am led to pray. The prayers at the end of each rosary are a slightly different translation, which I am growing to like.

    "A nice introduction to praying the Rosery"

    This program has 4 complete versions of the Rosery. Being new to this prayer it has been very helpful to have someone along to help keep me focused while learning it.

    "There is no litany included in this audio"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    There is no litany included in this audiobook. All four sets of mysteries are included, but there is no litany.

    "Not what I expected"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I did not feel this book was rewarding. Mr. Martin did not expand on the mysteries to be meditated on, did not include the Fatima prayer, etc.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Eric Roland Martin? Why or why not?

    No.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    It was dry, no emotion, no insight into the Rosary. The most dead performance of the Rosary I have heard.
