Publisher's Summary

Nick Seagrave is a disillusioned business executive who has lost loved ones to tragedy and his family to neglect. Now, at a point of great crisis, he finds himself inexplicably transported to what appears to be another world. Suddenly he's confronted with profoundly clear views of his own past and personality. And he's enabled to see, hear, taste, and smell the realities of both heaven and hell - realities that force him to face dangers and trials far greater than any he's known before.

Pitted against flying beasts; a monstrous web that threatens to hold him captive; an evil, brooding intelligence; and undeniable evidence of a spiritual world, Nick must finally come to grips with the God he claims not to believe in.

Walking between two worlds - where every choice he makes casts a vote for heaven or hell - Nick Seagrave prepares to make decisions that will change his life forever, as he stands on the Edge of Eternity.

Good once you get into it

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I would say it was time well spent after the first hour or so. Very difficult to get into it, which is not normal for his books.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Great!

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The voices were very dull

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

No

AMAZING

All I can say is, "Wow" - This book is incredibly insightful into the Christian life and understanding of what Christ has done for us and the purpose for our lives. SO creative - definitely had to come from direct revelation from the Holy Spirit. I listened with my 13 year old son on a long road trip and just continually sat there amazed at how it was packed with creative ways to express things. So many aspects of the Christian walk were brought out and the way you come to know what Christ did for us totally blew me away. What a great way to understand it. Being a creative person and thinker I'm not usually surprised by new ways to explain things creatively, but I sat intriged with it all. Everything included in the story was meaninful and served a purpose for understanding our "walk" better. My son really got into it as well. The battle scenes were so well done and described; the warrior in him was sparked. I will definitely look into more of this author's books and I want to get a copy for lots of people. I think it's something I will listen to again and again to refresh and refocus me. One thing though, the narrator spoke pretty fast for a audiobook, though it kind of matched the story. I had to get used to that. Compared to others it was on fast speed.

You can tell it is abridged, too short.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I would like to read the whole unabridged book. There seem to be loose ends never fully developed which makes me feel I will never be satisfied with it till I buy the print version.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

I think the whole book is quite interesting. Randy Alcorn is a good writer.

What aspect of Roger Marsh and Phil Ross ’s performance would you have changed?

The part I would like to change is to have a woman's character have a female voice. It is a bit confusing to hear a male voice doing the female parts.

Was Edge of Eternity worth the listening time?

I think it was, but it makes me think of the fact that for the book credit I could have gotten a longer book then 4 hours and instead gotten Safely Home or another longer book.

Any additional comments?

From now on I think I will try to find unabridged versions.

What the heak is that flapping?!?

How could the performance have been better?

I could not get past the audible sound effects and abandonded the story... I rated the story avarage since the audio was what made me turn it off.

Dislikes the abridging

The way that the book was abridged made it choppy and hard to follow. Thanks

amazing! simply amazing!

I'm not, by any stretch of the imagination, a reader. So to find this on audible and have it so wonderfully performed, was amazing.

Good story, bad reading

The narration was not good. Most of it is emotionless. Much of it was like he was reading to kindergartners. I had read the book before and wanted to hear it again. The narration ruined it.

Missing large amounts

This book didn't make sense as it jumped about10 chapters and thus characters were dead, and acting differently than before. I redownloaded it but settled to actually reading the book to find out what happened.
