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.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

LEAVE OUT THE VERSE NUMBERS. Then I would be able to follow what is being said as in story form as opposed to now... after every verse it says the chapter and the verse AGAIN. That is aweful plus it makes the overall listening time much longer. Frankly this version is so disappointing I will probably not actually use it.

What did you like best about this story?

Could only stand to listen to a few minutes

Would you be willing to try another one of Sean Criden’s performances?

Not really. I can't tell whether or not he is a good reader or a bad because of the irritating chapter and verse interuptions

What character would you cut from The Book of Mormon?

n/a

Any additional comments?

No
