Finding Silence in Audio!

Where does Holy Silence rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Wonderful. Powerful message and wonderful narration (although it is strange to listen to a book about silence... think about it!).

What did you like best about this story?

The Quietude Queries at the end.

Have you listened to any of Trevor Thompson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No. My first one. He does a great job. Such a wonderful bass voice with rich timbre.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I listened over a series of days while driving.

Any additional comments?

Great audiobook!

Wow! So Inspiring! Thank you!!!

If you could sum up Holy Silence in three words, what would they be?

I need this!!!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Holy Silence?

I enjoyed learning about the Friends, commonly known as Quakers, but above all, this book has inspired me to be still in holy silence before the Lord, learn to listen to His still, small voice, and to be more aware of His presence in my life throughout the day. It’s definitely a book that I will listen over and over! Thank you J. Brent Bill for writing this book!

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

Trevor Thompson has an amazingly beautiful, deep, masculine voice, wow! However, he needs to sound with more conviction and feeling of what he is saying. There’s also a need for longer pauses here and there. He has lots of potential to become a great narrator. I can’t wait to listen to more books narrated by him and see his improvement! Keep at it, you’re on the right track!

As far as the production is concerned, it needs more consistency of sound.

Any additional comments?

I received this audio-book free for an honest review by the author, narrator, or publisher. Thank you!!!
