    4.5 out of 5 stars 165

The only true and unedited telling of the life of Christ - his life and times,in historical context, but not lacking the psychology behind his physical being and spirit. Unlike other books seeking to strip Jesus' story to reveal only the human being, Romano Guardini's The Lord gives the complete story of Jesus Christ - as man, Holy Ghost, and Creator. Pope Benedict XVI lauds Guardini's work as providing a full understanding of the Son of God away from the prejudice that rationality engenders.

Incredibly deep insight into the faith and figure of Jesus Christ. Romano Guardini asked many questions and opened up many lines of thought that I'd never considered.

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

Yes

Any additional comments?

The audiobook falls slightly short of the print version, in that you can reference the prayers he has listed straight from the print edition, but this was otherwise amazing and to the point information about the tactics satan uses to tempt us, and our best defenses against them

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Great story, great Zombie book, with a good amount of humor

What does Sean Runnette bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Interesting character voices/personalities

Any additional comments?

I don't know if it's just the way he portrays her voice to distinguish her from the other characters, but he always makes Tracey sound like a raging ass, even during fairly innocuous moments. And she seems pretty nice.

What would have made The Post-Human Omnibus better?

Slowing down, adding some character development, and keeping the focus on fewer characters for longer periods of time.

What could David Simpson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

The AI's could have been smarter. The enemies could have been less "generically evil".

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The premise was amazing. AI, Different dimensions, human augmentations. All great things to have in a scifi story like this.

Any additional comments?

Maybe I didn't listen long enough to give it a proper chance, but we went from awesome premise about AI's, body augs, and different dimensions, to being on the Titanic. A scenic jump that I cannot fathom, especially given how it was executed.

After nearly four years, the zombie epidemic has almost burnt itself out. Gus' new life on a communal farm is peaceful. The daily routine of policing the fields is rarely disrupted by straying undead. His drinking binges are over. Long days have thrown time over the memories of Annapolis. But this will all change.

Would you consider the audio edition of Well Fed to be better than the print version?

I've never read the print version, but RC Bray does an excellent job communicating the story, and voicing the characters

Which character – as performed by R. C. Bray – was your favorite?

Gus, and Callie

Any additional comments?

Excellent writing, characters, and tie up. I was nervous and worried and excited all throughout the book. What Keith Blackmore does with suspense (and injury to characters) I've seldom seen accomplished over and over again without it becoming predictable or trite. But he manages to keep it fresh.
I definitely recommend it as a personal tale of the zombie apocalypse and as an all around excellent character driven story.

I'm glad my wife asked me to read this. It is easy to get caught up in so much stuff in life all the time. It's good and healthy to get a reminder that there's more to life and existence than just bills, and deadlines, and debts, and work.

This isn't a religious book. It's a book on how and why people. have faith. If you're curious, distant, or need a reminder of what your religion is really about, this is he book for you.

There’s something out there: a juggernaut of evil bearing down to crush the Republic - unless one lone Jedi, shunned and reviled, can stop it. Revan: hero, traitor, conqueror, villain, savior. A Jedi who left Coruscant to defeat Mandalorians - and returned a disciple of the dark side, bent on destroying the Republic. The Jedi Council gave Revan his life back, but his memories have been erased. All that’s left are nightmares - and deep, abiding fear. What exactly happened beyond the Outer Rim? Revan can’t quite remember, yet can’t entirely forget.

Would you consider the audio edition of Star Wars: The Old Republic: Revan to be better than the print version?

No.

How could the performance have been better?

I wish they had just had the reader performing the book instead of having the addition of distracting noises and music that aren't necessary because Drew Karpyshyn is a competent writer that doesn't need these sort of things :/

"Three knives were buried up to their brass cross guards in the man's chest. Richard recognized the knife handles. All three were the style carried by the men of the First File. He looked from those blades that should have killed the big man, up to his face. That was when he realized the true horror of the situation, and the reason for the unbearable stench of death." Sequel to the #1 New York Times best seller The Omen Machine.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This book has an excellent story, just like Terry Goodkind's entire series. The backstory, the interweaving of ancient civilizations/wars/prophecies is . . . incredible. 10 out of 10 in that regard

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

Good grief though, this book could be a third as long and communicate exactly the same amount of awesome. He repeat's almost every single statement, concept, or plot device 2 to 3 times, just with different wording, and my god is it ever annoying. I understand if he just did that when going over what happened in a previous book, because it's been awhile since I read the Omen Machine, but it's literally every. Single. Thing. Except for combat, he manages to get out of doing that (mostly) because I guess that would break the flow.

It's such an excellent story and performance though, just needs a bit of love from an editor with pruning shears.
