Outstanding book.

I very much enjoyed this book.
There are a number of reviews that complain about the narration and quality/speed.
I personally 100% disagree.
I listen to things at higher speeds than standard. This book sounds great at 2 to 3 x speed. Normally a book gets jumbled and glitchy if the narrator is not crystal clear. This one stays clean and understandable. If the audio sounds boring speed it up. :) Great content too. Well worth the $.

There is a reason these were rejected

I am intrigued by the rejected texts. I was expecting controversial ideas, interesting stories, or even insights into ancient culture. What I found was dry stories, fanciful tales, and eye rolling detail.

In fairness to the ancient authors and Mr. Lumpkin, the content might be better than can be ascertained from this audiobook. The book has been rendered torturous by the absolute dead performance of Dennis Logan. He reads the text as though we were in a library trying not to be noticed or perhaps while seated at a funeral waiting for the service to begin. I have never heard a more boring read.

I am very patient with most audiobooks I don't enjoy, struggling to make it through looking for that nugget of what attracted me to it in the first place. However, Logan's read made this impossible.

My biggest regret is that I waited months to listen and doubt I can get my credit back.

Save yourself a coma and a credit, keep looking, there's nothing to hear here.

Lost Books

Narraration dragged me through these books. Going through the books might give you more prospective to the core Bible books.

very hard to listen to

Disappointed in the dull, narration. Found it hard to listen to. Had to overcome the flat monologue to make any senseof the book. Too much wasted time.
