Summary

Will Self reads from his introduction to Revelation, the final book of the Bible, which prophesises the ultimate judgement of mankind in a series of allegorical visions, grisly images, and numerological predictions. According to these, empires will fall, the 'Beast' will be destroyed, and Christ will rule a new Jerusalem. The introduction is preceded by a reading from the book by Richard Holloway, former Bishop of Edinburgh.

Well worth it, short as it is.

The apocalyptic voice in my head urged me to buy. I bought.
And I was indeed satisfied.
So I say unto you to do the same. You will not be found wanting.

Will Self Writes and Narrates this Intro.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Great to hear what my favorite author sounds like reading his work. The other reviews on here are F*n hilarious. Love the fact that they were expecting some pious dribble and instead they got some Will Self -the best English language writer working today. Wish it was longer essay/intro on "Revelation"

Any additional comments?

Audible needs to add more Will Self books.

DO NOT BUY

I could not understand a word of what he was trying to say on the 2 minutes of audio. Only 2 minutes for a Dollar!! That's $0.50 cents per minute. Don't waste you hard earn Money. DO NOT BUY

paid way too much for this

This was the biggest waste of money I ever spent at Audible. This guy is a worthless whiner. No preaching, no faith building. Its like going to a rotten church. I am studying Revelation right now so that is why I tried it. This is a total waste of money!!! Don't buy it!
