All I can say is that is that it is to short, not enough details of the battle and the people involved.
"Music too loud"
It was difficult to hear, the background music was so loud I had a difficult time hearing the reader
Yes, if it were reread without the loud music
The narrator was fine
I can't say, because I really was so disappointed and distracted.
I listened to it several times to try to hear it. Very poor presentation!
"Very short version of the story..."
It was entertaining, but there is so much more AWESOME parts of the story of the Maccabees! I didn't care for the echo effect that they used everytime Judah spoke either. It was very good for $1.35 though, and gives the listener enough information to appreciate the acts of the brave people that took a stand for God, led by the Maccabees.
