Where does The One Year Chronological Bible NLT rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is a pretty audiobook. It's not the best but it ranks up there among the top ten so far.

What did you like best about this story?

I hear the whole story of the Bible in chronological order, which can get repetitive at times in the Old Testament but it's instructive to see how many times and ways the same story is reflected in various places.

What about Todd Busteed’s performance did you like?

He reads slow enough to be heard but not so slow as to be ponderous. He adds the right amount of inflection so I can hear some emotion in the words without his voice pandering to emotionalism.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There are lots of times when the Bible's words moved me.

Any additional comments?

The only flaw in this audiobook is that it usually does not make it clear WHERE he's reading from, which is a problem especially in the Old Testament where he moves around between various books of the Bible. I'm not familiar with this translation and more than once I wanted to look up the text because I was surprised by a word choice. Unfortunately I cannot look up the verses because the audiobook doesn't tell you where the narrator is reading. It's a major flaw.

This book was a fun listen. The narrator did a commendable job differentiating between characters though at times I had to go backwards in order to understand which character said what. The ending was predictable but only if the reader is well versed in human behavior. The writer dropped little hints early on that the character tracked down later. If the listener was listening carefully then the ending should not be a surprise. The only surprise was Ms. Grey’s crucial decision in chapter 6 which seemed a bit out of character, but probably because I did not give sufficient credence to her growing obsession for Mark. Overall it’s an excellent book I will recommend highly to others. The author is an excellent writer.
