Publisher's Summary

The battle between good and evil, God and Satan.A fight older than time.

But is everything we know about this struggle just a matter of propaganda? Satan, Lucifer, the Devil, Shaytan sure thinks so. In this letter he tries to convince the human race, you, of his intentions.

They are pure.

Everything that was blamed on him was done as a smokescreen to cover more sinister motives.

The Fall? Not merely a matter of wanting to rule in Hell over serving in Heaven.

The Garden of Eden? He was trying to help us.

Jesus? Don't even ask.

With this letter Lucifer tells us his version of all the stories to settle his mind and settle the injustices of this world once and for all. Be careful...you might find yourself on the wrong side.

WOW!

What did you love best about Satan's Plea?

This is an interesting perspective from the "other side." I was intrigued and it didn't fail to deliver. Very cool little story.

What did you like best about this story?

The perspective.

What about Mark Lindgren’s performance did you like?

AMAZING.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

It's good to look at things from a different perspective and this showcases that fact.

Great and interesting, worth the listen!

To start this is a work of fiction, and a very good one. It broaches a figure in religion most would shy away from and casts an interesting monologue like letter about a different perspective of the story we all know so well! I understand that it is controversial but its a story, it doesn't attack religion it merely tells a compelling tale of a tired man, nothing weird or satanic. A story you'd sit and listen to an elder tell would be a good description of it.

Additionally the preformance added levels to the story. The narrator felt like a perfect fit for the overall tone of the story. Overall it was a good piece, it's a shorter book so a relatively easy listen you can get alot from. My suggestion, pick it up and go into it with an open mind, you just might find you really thoroughly enjoy it.

A short story from another perspective

This is a short story from the perspective of Satan and how he fell from Heaven. The bible only tells it from one side, but there are always more than one side to every story.

I discovered this book when someone on a message board recommended it. I clicked through several of the recommendations to find a new story and, funny enough, I bought it by accident! I decided to give it a try. It turned out to be a very happy accident. I highly enjoyed the new perspective of Heaven, Hell, God, and Satan.

Mark Lindgren was a great narrator. Any narrator who can change their voices well enough to make every character that speaks unique, is a good one by me. There are not many unique speakers in this tale, since it is a one-sided remembrance of the fall, but the characters that do have a talking role have very unique tone to each of them.

Overall, this accidental buy has become one of my favorite short stories I have read.

intriguing Take on a Classic Tale!

This short story was a great spin on the god/Satan dynamic, with an engaging narrator.

A surprisingly great and well-narrated short

I found Satan's Plea hard to engage with, at first, but about a quarter of the way in, it turned a corner and found its groove. The narration had a lot to do with this, as it was excellent.

This short seems like a set-up for a full-scale novel, one I'd absolutely love to read, where Lucifer and God go to war. I'd love to see how that battle ends, and truth be told, from where this left off, I'd like to see the perceptive and sympathetic Lucifer win that one over the egocentric and selfish God who had only his best interests at heart, not those of his creations. The possibilities of that story are endless and could make for one intriguing piece of fiction.

Never read/heard a book quite like it.

It's really quite a novel experience to hear a story from Satan's perspective. I give this book 10/10, would recommend to anyone that isn't the stuffy religious type.

Interesting twist with some satirical undertones

Something I found very interesting was the pure creativity of the story. There is a fun and unique story told by Lucy himself to essentially explain how he isn't a bad guy and that we've got him all wrong.

The only reason I didn't rate the story as a 5 is because it seemed to tail off at the end or rather run out of "real estate" in the framing of the book to drive home the overall storyline.

This was absolutely an enjoyable listen. I was able to listen to this gratis'.

An entertaining short listen

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

The Book

I'm not sure if it was deliberate or not but the bit before the story about characters being fictitious made me laugh. I'm in no way religious and found the slightly humorous tone of the story to be good, Satan wasn't speaking in preachy or old fashioned language and it was interesting and entertaining. The story did get quite dark at times but never got bogged down by it.

The Production

The narrator was good and suited the character well, quality was good and it was very enjoyable to listen to.
