In one cataclysmic moment, millions around the globe disappear during "the rapture". Those left behind are destined to face war, famine, plagues, and natural disasters so devastating that only one in four people will survive. Odds are even worse for enemies of the Antichrist and his new world order. Rayford Steele, Buck Williams, Bruce Barnes, and Chloe Steele band together to form the Tribulation Force. Their task is clear, and their goal is nothing less than to stand and fight the enemies of God during the seven most chaotic years the planet will ever see.

"Great book bad narrator"
I would only recommend the one read by Richard Ferrone. NOT JACK SONDERRICKER.
The story, It is straight from Revalations.
Anybody. Some of the Jewish accents he does you cant even understand what he is saying.
The one read by Richard Ferrone yes.
If you search the name of the book there are 3 that come up. A dramatized one, Sonderricker and then Ferrone. Purchase Ferrone.
Love this series. However the Sound quality and Narrator are terrible. The guy reading ruins the story.
No, terrible narrator
"Book 2 in the series"
What an amazing and inspiring story. I'm looking very forward to listening to the 3rd book in this series. I truly hope many others will listen to and enjoy this 2nd book as I have
"I Hope Rabbi Ben Judah is not in subsequent books."
The jewish accents are very bad. Hard to understand. But in general the reading of the story is not good. Particularly hate the way Chloe is narrated. Buck doesn't sound like a world class journalist, more like a rube. Nicolae sounds light in the loafers. It takes away from the book for sure.
"jack sondericker as reader"
Great story overall but the narrator is horrible too much background noise i.e. turning pages ,writing and/or scribbling and just all around general background noise........ It's driving me crazy
"Good story, terrible audio"
This review covers "Left Behind" and "Tribulation Force" as narrated by Jack Sondericker.
I am so disappointed with the audio quality of this recording. It sounds like it was recorded straight off of a cassette which had been wound tightly for a long time. The audio is full of echoes and pre-echoes from where the cassette tape had experienced bleed-through. If you listen through earphones as I do, it's extremely distracting.
Additionally, there is a ton of background noise. Furious pencil-scratching sounds, bangs and clanks...and I'm almost certain I heard a toilet flush at one point.
All of that I could have tolerated, and in fact DID tolerate through Left Behind and much of Tribulation Force.
But then Rabbi Ben-Zion became a major figure, and his badly-done "Hebrew accent" is more than I can stand. If I were Jewish, I'd be insulted. It's one thing to be unable to master an accent, but it's another to make it sound as if the person is channeling a mixture of Donald Duck and Ludwig Von Drake.
I will be returning this series for a refund, but since I love the story itself, I will try again with a different narrator.
Enjoyed immensley, a must for any Non Christian to listen to, so they will understand and realize they need to be prepared for the Rapture and Eternity!
"Great story, horrible narrator. Gave 2 stars because of narration."
Would have given 5 star if it were not for the narrator, Narrator is awful, gives 30 yr old people old man voices. Gives women in their 29's old lady voices. Absolutely horrible narration. Is often shrill.
Too bad, the book would have been good as the series is great. I recommend that it be re-recorded with the Left Behind narrator.
Love the story! Narrator is ok, the over-the-top Jewish accent is a bit much when reading a couple of the character voices. But, overall a great "read"!!
"Great Book Poor Narrator"
I enjoyed the book, but I did not like the way many of the characters were read.
Couldn't understand some of the characters and didn't like the wimpy, gushing way that Chloe was performed. She is a strong character, but sounded like a simpering idiot.
