Any additional comments?

I thoroughly enjoyed the artful use of language to express, with color and flare, the story's comments on the social morays and prejudices of Jonathan Swift's time (1667 - 1745). I especially enjoyed David Hyde Pierce's narration. It made this satirists' humorous and poignant social comments a classic a page turner. What a ride! I would dearly love to hear David Hyde Pierce read from any of Mark Twain and/or Will Rogers works.

Is it possible that there exists an ancient mystery that holds the secret of America's future? That this mystery lies behind everything from 9/11 to the collapse of the global economy? That ancient harbingers of judgment are now manifesting in America? That God is sending America a prophetic message of what is yet to come? Before its end as a nation, there appeared in ancient Israel nine specific warnings and omens of national destruction - these same Nine Harbingers are now manifesting in America with profound ramifications.

Any additional comments?

This book made me think hard about not only the state of my life choices but those of my County, State, Nation, and even the world in which we all live. It had me feeling our life choices matter, even down to the choices of everyone: in every home, in every neighborhood. If we don't rethink, then choose to actively readjust our way of life, we are all going to experience the very negative consequences of our own behavior. It made me remember that to NOT make a choice IS to make a choice. If you dare to push the envelope of your comfort zone, dare to really be challenged to THINK and to FEEL, listen to the message within this book. You may never be the same again. Hopefully for the rest of your life.
