Gilbert Morris has written more than 80 inspiring novels, many of them best sellers. In this epic work, he and his co-authors use Biblical truth and powerful allegory to offer a new way of thinking about the end times.In the year 2050, the U.S. government rules that humanity is nature’s worst enemy and herds all of its citizens into a few overcrowded cities. An insidious new version of Germany’s Third Reich, led by an indestructible madman, infiltrates the White House and uses an electricity-eating virus to plunge the nation into darkness. Except for a handful of God’s chosen people, who are converging in the hills, the entire nation lies on the brink of chaos.
If I was to READ this book I would have put it down on the third chapter. The story line is very long winded, and on some points Redundent. I did however follow it to the end. I did get into the charetures in the story and have ponderd long on the ideas brought up about how our walk with God can be lost in the living. If you are one who likes to read between the lines this is not the book for that. If you are one who likes to ponder others point of view this is a PERFECT resouce to that end.
Over all I enjoyed the reading, Paul brought a lot of feeling to this book that I would not have felt.
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
I don't know of anyway to take a book like this and make it enjoyable. It's complex, jumps from character to character, scene to scene, To me it was all jumbled up and made very little sense.
It was a big letdown to me as I really like and respect all of the other books I have read by Morris.
I kept waiting for the content to match the title, and it never diid (some three hours into it, when I quit)
I thought for a long time that the content must be for another book and there was a mistake in my download. I never could figure out of this was true or not?
What was most disappointing about Gilbert Morris’s story?
I was looking for the content of the book to match the title. That's why I bought it.
Would you be willing to try another one of Paul Hecht’s performances?
Paul's reading was great!
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Beginning of Sorrows?
In my four hours of listening, in disbelief, I would have cut it all.
Any additional comments?
I don't know if the content ever matched the title. I couldn't stand listening for another 10 hours to see.
I hope someone else can listen to this book and write a better review. I would rather think that it was me than the author.
