Narrator ruins the rest

The history is very well written and very interesting. The quotes selected are great—-except for the horrible fakey “accents” the narrator used to read them. The narration made me grit my teeth through the entire book. Just finished it, and heaved a great sigh of relief. I hope to goodness that a different narrator is used for the next volume.

Narrator ruined it for me.

I generally love to read church history, and the stories were good, but the narrator over-acted so badly that I could not finish the book. I never understood the basis of his accents or inflections for the various figures in the book and it just became too distracting

Beautiful

The narrator did a beautiful job with this work. The history is candid and warmly written. It shows an imperfect people with a nearly perfect faith during trials and tribulations.

Fascinating and sad

The themes are missionary work and polygamy. The missionary success seems remarkable considering all the problems faced by members. Polygamy would have served a purpose and certainly has biblical precedent but became a huge problem as the US government heaped increasing sanctions against its participants. Ironically, a man can now marry another man. The book well portrays the array of personal pains resulting from the abrupt end to polygamy.

Narration was pretty bad.

Stories were great, book was informative, narration was bad. Really bad. The voices and accents were irritating, especially those of the women, and every quote was spoken as if it were the most profound thing the person had ever said. Very heavy handed. My husband refused to be in the room when I was listening. I hope the church will choose a different reader for upcoming volumes.

Not a fan of the reader's voice

This is just me but - it got got to where I would cringe when the reader would use an accent when he would quote someone.
