weird sound effects

I usually enjoy reading RA books, but the narration and sound effects were too distracting. the cadence of the narrator was off. each phrase ended with the tone and tempo of the narrator dropping. The Heaven sound was an annoying, cliche attempt at heavenly synth noise. I really did not care for the effects.

Loved Deadline!

We were traveling from Colorado home to Texas from our youth mission trip/youth camp destinations and decided to download and listen to Randy Alcorn's audible book Deadline. It definitely helped make our long hours of traveling much more enjoyable. My husband and I had read the book together years ago and enjoyed it and enjoyed it again with our children on this trip. The message of the book was really good as well as the reading of it.

Abridged version

Enjoyed the story, but realized toward the end that the audio is not the whole story, as I had the book also. Did not see this mentioned anywhere in the description. Would have liked to know this ahead of time.

Great experience!

I'd read this book years ago and couldn't put it down. Listening to it was just as good as reading, if not better. The story is really interesting and will keep you on the edge of your seat, and the narration is very well performed. I was hesitant to get the abridged version since it's such a long book and I was afraid key details would be left out, but that wasn't the case. I wasn't disappointed.

excellent!

Man is born in iniquity. All people have utterly failed to obey the law of God. You know it. But God, our Creator, (the creation screams Creator), being rich in mercy sent His only begotten Son. Turn from your idols, the things you worship that never pay out what they promise (success, money, relationships, sex, sports) and trust in the substitutionary death of God Himself, Jesus Christ. You are so sinful, blind and lost the perfect Son of God had to die to pay for you (God is a just judge, just like a just judge in our courts, criminals cant be freed without proper payment), but you are so Loved that He joyfully paid for you, and adopts you as a Child, and secures you forever!

Absolutely lovely

This was a beautiful story that brought to the front that our choices have very far reaching consequences or blessings - and how I wouldn’t wish my worst enemy to go where Doc went!!!

Asocial commentary wrapped in a whodunit

This story is well-written but emotionally heavy as it tries to integrate pretty weighty social and spiritual commentary into a rudimentary murder mystery.
