Fascinating story, terrible narration

The stories presented are fascinating. A lot of it seems familiar - if you are familiar with the bible - but they have extras, and unfamiliar twists and turns that can come as a real surprise. However, I can only listen to it in little bits, because the narration is absolutely terrible. The reader seems to think he needs to be reverential and speaks in a very unnatural, forced near-whisper which makes my skin crawl. I have never heard anything like it! So 5 stars for the content and 1 for the narrator.

Outstanding book.

I very much enjoyed this book.
There are a number of reviews that complain about the narration and quality/speed.
I personally 100% disagree.
I listen to things at higher speeds than standard. This book sounds great at 2 to 3 x speed. Normally a book gets jumbled and glitchy if the narrator is not crystal clear. This one stays clean and understandable. If the audio sounds boring speed it up. :) Great content too. Well worth the $.

Lots of aha moments!

To be read with the Holy Spirit to guide you to know which parts are true.
A lot of research went into this book.

Dennis Logan did a good job narrating.

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

There is a reason these were rejected

I am intrigued by the rejected texts. I was expecting controversial ideas, interesting stories, or even insights into ancient culture. What I found was dry stories, fanciful tales, and eye rolling detail.

In fairness to the ancient authors and Mr. Lumpkin, the content might be better than can be ascertained from this audiobook. The book has been rendered torturous by the absolute dead performance of Dennis Logan. He reads the text as though we were in a library trying not to be noticed or perhaps while seated at a funeral waiting for the service to begin. I have never heard a more boring read.

I am very patient with most audiobooks I don't enjoy, struggling to make it through looking for that nugget of what attracted me to it in the first place. However, Logan's read made this impossible.

My biggest regret is that I waited months to listen and doubt I can get my credit back.

Save yourself a coma and a credit, keep looking, there's nothing to hear here.

May God Bless You And Yours

I found the material interesting and thought provoking, however I had trouble with reader. His voice and cadence made it difficult to listen to

very hard to listen to

Disappointed in the dull, narration. Found it hard to listen to. Had to overcome the flat monologue to make any senseof the book. Too much wasted time.
