Great story lines

The narrator was one of the best I've heard in a audio book and was able to characterize multiple characters using different accents. This helped me visualize the subplots of which their were a few which kept the book entertaining like a movie. The author was able to illistrate one theory of end times quite well - pretrib rapture. Not being a pretrib theorist I liked this book nonetheless .

Great story as always. Didn't like the narrator

I enjoyed the closure on the whole story. But.. This was probably one of the worst narrator performances I've heard. Not that he stuttered or slurred; this guy should have been a sports commentator. He talked super fast and didn't change voices for different characters, which sometimes made it hard to follow a conversation of two people. To me it sounded like he didn't care for what he was reading and just wanted to get through it as fast as he could..

Amazing Narrator, not so well written

Would you consider the audio edition of The Rapture to be better than the print version?

I would, I haven't read it, it seems more adventures than the book, the narator is good

Would you recommend The Rapture to your friends? Why or why not?

no

Which character – as performed by Jack Sondericker – was your favorite?

Irene, I really loved how he did her voice

If you could take any character from The Rapture out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Irene, I would like to talk to her about her faith.
