The story is so incredibly brutal yet so very personal that it really got to me. Once I started listenin I really could not stop. Even after I stopped listening to the book I kept thinking about it for hours, well then you got one great book! It is well paced and the plot is great.

I had a hard time getting into the book in the beginning because of the narration. It felt a bit robotic and because of that I had a hard time feeling the emotions the book contains at times. But I got more used to the narrator at some point.

But wow. What a book. I will recommend this book to my friends and collegues.

A long well read dark story!

The 12 hours long story is dark, very dark. 12 hours is a bit too long for the story in my opinion, I would have prefered 8 hours for this story-arc, but hey, I enjoyed it. I appreciate the writing style of the writer. The text seems to be written by someone clever, social, humorous and imagenative. By reading this book I really got to like to writer!

It was nice to have a couple of narrator´s. They did a good job, though I am not a big fan of Butch (Brad). One narrator did a great job: Kristin James. Somehow I wish she narrated the book all by herself. There are some minor shortcomings in the story, but not at all bothersome.

A good book overall! Intriguing writer! I am looking forward to her other books!

I do have to add: I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Just wow! Severely moving and true to other books about the life of St. Francis.

Amazing narration, amazing story!

The story of dracula is well-known by this point in time. But the execution of the audiobook is exceptional! I do love this production where there are multiple narrators involved, it does give this book a more intense feeling. I got hooked.

I would highly recommend this book for anybody enjoying dracula and I would recommend this book for everybody who likes an exceptionally well narrated book. I don´t regret buying this book for even a single second.

Devoted narrator!

Absolutely amazing performance by the narrator. It adds so much more to the experience! This is a great follow up to the author´s previous audio book. I would not recommend this if you do not have a faint clue of the bible (stories). If you are new to the Bible, and want to have a laugh, get the first book. Want to have a bit more info on some books and go deep in missing Bible books, then get this!

Absolutely recommended!

Narration is quite ok, but not great. Imagine yourself as a student in a classroom. That is probably literally where the microphone was situated for a year. Which is alright, but can be annoying at times as an jet fighter keeps flying over time and time again... The jokes are really nice though!

Dr. Bill Greasy is great. His way of speaking and tutoring is absolutely wonderful. Hard core Bible fanatics probably should skip this.. If you are genuinly interested in the Bible and want to know a light-hearted in-depth ´study´ of what it is all about, then this is all for you!

One huge downside though, as with all audiobooks, there are no chapter names..

It sure is my most well spent credit ever! Everybody only slightly interested in anything related to the Bible should have this audiobook in their collection.

Amazing performance!

This is one hell of an audio book! Because the narration and the writing was so good the book really caught me. So much that, in the more graphic scenes, I needed some time to proces everything I just listened to. I physically felt the paint of the victims at many points in the book..... Wow..!

One unmissible experience!

I learned while laughing (a lot)

This unique way of explaining the bible using examples and situations every millenial can relate with. It is absolutely fantastic. In F35 speeds the writer took me trough every book of the bible. I only wished it was not shot short.. But they do say that time flies when one is having fun.. At college and in public transport people got scared from my sudden bursts of laughter..

Absolutely recommended for everybody!

Im dipping in for the second right now!
