Publisher's Summary

The story of Moses, who grew from orphan to adopted prince to leader of the oppressed people, is worthy of many retellings. In Moses, Fast breathes new life into the legendary story of the infant found among the reeds of the Nile. From Moses’s adoption into the home of Pharaoh Ramses II, to his upbringing in Egypt's royal court, to his controversial support of monotheism and eventual leadership of a nation, Moses is a stunning look at the life of one of world history's most celebrated men.

Beautiful.

Absolutely beautiful. The narrator was fantastic 👏🏽 and the story, rich and memorable. I will be looking for part two, if there is one.

Wonderful book!

The author’s use of English is lovely, and the narrator seemed to appreciate it as he voiced the lines. Moses’ early story is credibly created in a way that fits into what I know about the time period, and questions about the nature of God and man are turned over and over.

I would have given the book a -1 star if I could

What would have made Moses better?

A new author, and not wasting a credit on it. Simply awful from start to finish.If I buy it, download it, I will listen to the entire book, no matter how much mind and ears want to close up. I found this to be the absolute worse book I've ever read. Please don't waste your credit or money on this one.

Would you ever listen to anything by Howard Fast again?

No way.

Would you be willing to try another one of Christopher Kipiniak’s performances?

Not searching him out, that's for sure. So NO.

What character would you cut from Moses?

Let's see,, all of them in this case.

Any additional comments?

If you enjoyed this book I am happy for you. Maybe I missed something during those monotone never ending characters. Sorry for such a negative review, but seriously, I could in no way get into this book.

Good with performance and dialogue flaws

Voice changes help the flow of a story. But why Israelite women have Irish brogues eludes me.

Moses dialogue, though an adult, 6 feet tall, is like a sniveling 8 year old eludes me.

The story itself is inventive and enjoyable. I am glad I read it.

Fascinating tale

I really enjoyed this story, which tells up to the time that the young Moses flees from Egypt after killing a man. In other words, it covers the early part of Moses' life of which the Bible says little.
interesting look into other cultures - ancient Egypt, slave people, Cushites.
The narrator tells it well, though the American (?) pronunciation can get a little grating eg. plate insteadof plait.

Fascinating concept

Not a religious book, but a psychological novel about the biblical figure with modern understanding of personality formation
