Publisher's Summary

Those who were left behind after the Rapture must now make a crucial decision. Each person must choose whether to receive the mark of the beast, or die. Never has faith in God been more important for the group of believers called the Tribulation Force, who now face danger on all sides. Valiantly, they continue to urge new followers to accept Christ's love. Noted scriptural authority Tim LaHaye provides outlines for the vivid biblical prophecies in The Mark and the other books in the series. Best-selling author Jerry B. Jenkins creates the dramatic stories for each fast-paced apocalyptic thriller. With Audie Award-winning narrator Frank Muller's powerful performance, The Mark takes on additional dramatic force.

The Left Behind series has topped best seller lists across the country, been the subject of special features in national media, and captured the attention of Hollywood producers. With sales in the tens of millions, the Left Behind books are the biggest selling inspirational series of all time.

Narrator Ruins It

The story is decent, but the narrator detracts so much from it, it is hard to focus. His Carpathia voice sounds like Count Chocula and it is annoying to constantly hear his mispronunciation of Zion. I think I'll read The Desecration because it looks like it's the same narrator!

Awesome story, TERRIBLE NARRATION

I LOVE the Left Behind Series. I read each of the books and am now listening to each on my ipod. It is such a blessing. However, the new narrator is TERRIBLE! He is difficult to understand and reads the story too fast! Unfortunatly, I see he narrates the next book too. I guess the authors realized because on Book 10, Richard Farrone is back!! Yeah! Rating on story: 5 stars / Rating on narrator: 0

Jaded

I have to admit that I will complete the series, but look forward to making sure I don't get involved in such a pitfall again. The narrator, Frank Whatever, is aweful! What happened to Richard Ferrone? This new guy ends every sentence in a whispery lengthening draw that is just so distracting. The difference between the last book and this book is like getting slapped in the face and getting moved from the orchestra seats to the smelly part of a theatre. Zion is now pronounced something like Tseeon and characters are now infused with bad accents...like Fortunado. Was he always from Brooklyn? I guess the marketing rush of this series got the best of its audio half too. Bad enough 1/4 of the content in the beginning of the series was a repeat of the former books. This is how NOT to do a series. The intended content takes an effort to find. Wonder what's else is in store for us.

Not a fan of the new narrator

I have loved all of the books in this series so far. I still like the story, but am not a fan of the new narrator. His accents are horrible and pace too quick. (Half the charactes sound like Dracula and the other half Gomer Pyle.)

However, the series is great and if you made it this far, you really can't stop listening. I have blown through my Listener allotment, increased my subscription to premium and am three weeks away until the next month...

Why the narrator switch

Book is great like the previous 7 but the narrator switch is awful. If it wasnt for that I would give the book 5 stars. I abosolute can't stand Frank the new narrator. He seems to speed talk his way through the book and place extreme emphasis on the last word of every sentence. The speed at which this guys speaks is probably the worst aspect of the book, it can get very confusing on who's talking and whats going on if you miss one word. On top of all that the narrator went ahead and pronounces half the names of characters differntly too.

Sure Miss Ferrone as Narrator

While this 8th book in the series is as good as the 7 prior, I sure miss Mr. Ferrone as narrator of the unabridged versions. Mr. Muller's character accents took some getting used to.

Why the change in reader?

The reader on this book is terrible, I wish I knew why they deviated from using Richard Ferrrone. This reader is ruining the book for me and I can't wait for it to be over. This reader can't even pronounce the names of the characters correctly. The book itself is great as are all of this series, but I can't wait til I get to the next book and back to Richard Ferrone.

Disappointed

I have read this book twice. In listening to it I was quite disappointed. This narrator takes a lot away from the story. He CONSTANTLY mispronounces Tsion, saying it as "tsee-on" instead of Zion.
He also mispronounces the name of others and his character accents are so distracting it is rediculous. He is such a stark contrast from the narrator of the first seven books it was hard to keep up with the story. I definately agree with one of the previous reivews that his Carpathia voice sounds like a cheap Dracula movie.

Frank Muller's Turn

It's always jarring when a new reader takes over a series. But Frank Muller was undoubtedly one of the best narrators of all time. And switching readers in the middle of a series happens all the time, and anytime one gets to listen to Muller it's a delight. The series is still great, thus deserving of 5 stars, but it does start to drag after The Indwelling. Little to no time passes in each book. But this is the mid point, a little past the mid point in the Tribulation. Now it's take the mark or be a martyr. And this resonates so much in 2020, even though this material is dated. If only LaHaye and Jenkins could have known what 2020, and the lead up to it, had in store. Great series, and another great entry.

What happened?

I’ve listened to the whole series and I’ve been totally hooked. Now I get to “The Mark” and I can’t stand to listen to it. Seriously the narration is horrible. I want my credit back.

Escaping The Mark!

This book is narrated by a different man to the rest of the series so far. In some ways this is better - he's very expressive, and can do all the various accents very convincingly. He has a different voice for each character, unlike Richard Ferrone who gave everyine the same American accent. He even pronounces Zion Ben Judah's name differently, ("Zeeon" instead of "Zyon") with the assurance that he is the one who is correct. The only reservation I had about him is that he sees fit to end almost every sentence in the same lingering, husky, cowboy-like tone, as if he's trying to sound "dramatic" and "mysterious". This is absolutely unecessary, as there are lots of different moods in the story, although a lot of it is nail biting drama and lots of dangerous adventure as the Christian characters escape the Carpathian Satan worshippers by the skin of their teeth. Exciting stuff!

Amazing books.

I’ve read this full series a few times over the years. Physical book, kindle and now audible. I enjoyed this book so much more being read to me as your mind can take so much more in. The story and plot are aiming as usual. I have to say this and the later books are my favourites. I am nearing the end of this now and feel quite sad. Have the next to start after I’ve finished so looking forward to that. Narrator at first took a while to get used to but loving his Nicolae carpathia impersonation.

great story.

Great story. Not so keen on the reader. Reading too "breathy" and the kiwi accent is a joke.
This guy reads too fast, too . He does do the voices well, though
