Here is an audio edition of the sacred text of the Latter-Day Saint movement that followers believe contains the writings of ancient prophets who lived on the American continent from approximately 2200 B.C. to A.D. 421. A fascinating listen for religious scholars and denominational adherents alike.

If you could sum up The Book of Mormon in three words, what would they be?

Best book ever

Who was your favorite character and why?

Nephi, he had great faith.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Sean Criden?

Thomas S. Monson

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Any additional comments?

It is frustrating listening to the chapter and verse before each verse it is more frustrating hearing the verse repeated twice before each verse. It distracts from the narrative. Furthermore, some of the pronunciation of the characters is off. I also don't like that the audio book says it is written by Joseph Smith when it is actually translated by Joseph Smith.
