Publisher's Summary

"An epic tale with considerable writer’s freedom that makes the book wholly entertaining." (San Francisco Review of Books)

"With one poor poet's scroll, he shook the world!" 

Such is the power of this author's voice as a brotherhood of angels prepares for battle, tears are shed in heaven, and fire leaps from the holy altar.  

Thus the stage is set, a showdown looming that will decide the course of a man's soul and with it, all of humanity.  

This visionary epic poem leaps through time and space and otherworldly encounter, even to the throne of God. Now, be swept up in its enchantments!

Obama's Troubling Dream

Although not exactly my cup of tea, this book was very well-written, and the narrator delivers a highly engaging and entertaining performance of his work (the author and narrator are one in the same). This is a work of tremendous imagination and creativity, in which the author uses a poem to tell a story in which, in a dream, Satan accuses President Obama of using his position as President to act with harm and in contradiction to the U.S. Constitution. Examples include keeping Guantanamo Bay open after promising to close it, the use of drones to kill U.S. adversaries, jailing Edward Snowden for being a whistleblower, etc. In the end, God and Satan exchange words, Obama is spared, and, in the end, Satan appeals to God to postpone Satan's terrible fate "until the appointed time". Obama wakes from his dream feeling remorseful and with a change of heart. I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.

Another grand Epic Poem Narration

Another grand Epic Poem Narration First, I read the print copy of this book. Many of my sentiments are the same, but there are some dramatic differences when listening to the prolific voice of author Leroy, as he narrated his story. LeRoy has a great talent for writing an epic poem, and his hypnotic voice lends grandly to the narration of the story. The way the words are penned together to come up with a completely grand poem is just pure talent. LeRoy has a unique way of looking at the world, and as I have read his other epic poems, this is not different and definitely not disappointing. He has a remarkable writing style and add to it his reading, no, narrative style, and it brings the reader in, as he paints with words, his voice flowing over gently with the narrative song of his words. "Close by Obama’s ear, there sits the fiend, Whispering foul thoughts of evil influence. 3 To overhear and learn what might be gleaned Of wicked schemes one angel’s preference." I look forward to reading (and listening) more by this poetic author.

History and teachings of the first Christians

Interesting material. This book describes what is considered old doctrine but really it's what was meant to be that has been lost through time. Some of the wording - the thees and thous - could be updated to modern language which would make it easier to take in what it is trying to convey. I am a christian who has somewhat lost my way but if what this book teaches could help many to understand what is meant to be and would encourage those like me that are turned off by the current church hypocrisy. I would recommend this book to those who want to understand the first teachings and learn. I was given this free review copy at my request in exchange for an unbiased review.

Entertaining

I got this book via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. The author told a tale through a poem. The narration was very well done. The story filled with a mix of truth and fantasy. The concept highly imaginative. Overall a good listen as long as you listen with an open mind especially in the climate that we are in right now.

Good Poetry

I don't really feel qualified to comment on poetry but this is clearly well done and the narration is really strong. It's an interesting imaginary intervention by angels in recent history. I'd definitely be interested in hearing more from the author (and self-narrator). Note: I received a review copy of this but that did not influence my opinion on the work. It is my own.
