Great information, terrible production

All my life I've heard of this book. As one of jehovah's Witnesses I was actually blown away that this was even on audible
I played a portion before purchase, and realized that the reader and audio production was going to be tough to listen to. I wanted the info, so I knew I was going to have to focus on that
The reader doesn't understand punctuation, the book is one long run on sentence. They put background music to it that is horrible, even creepy. Anyone in the theocratic ministry school would have done better, even the 8 year olds. Purchase it anyway
Going to try to see how I can get audible let us re-record Ithaca

Background music distracting

Although the story itself was encouraging and an excellent history lesson, the background music was at best distracting. It droned on throughout the whole book. The sound effects were also unnecessary & at times drowned out the reader. The reading itself sounded rushed. It makes me want to pick up the book in written form so I can give the story the attention it deserves.

Amazing!

Amazing display of faith! Very encouraging and great advice. Brother MacMillan... had been through many things and seen many changes and he held faithful no matter what....

Great history

It was hard at first to get into the book because of the background music and sound affects. If you can block them out, and focus on the story, the characters and events in the book comes to life. So much i didn't know about Jehovah's witnesses. I recommend this book to others.

enjoyable book with continuous annoying background

Any additional comments?

This review is focused on the audiobook only--I have previously enjoyed the print version very much and echo the positive reviews about content.
The narrator is only fair, not great. This would be perfectly tolerable, but the audiobook is marred by a continuous repetitive musical background track. If I could just drop the music, the audiobook would be improved greatly.

Wonderful

A history on a misunderstood religious group Jehovahs's Witnesses. Well worth the time spent. It is well read. Several things have been adjusted for further enlightenment of the scriptures.
