Summary

The battle between good and evil, God and Satan.A fight older than time.

But is everything we know about this struggle just a matter of propaganda? Satan, Lucifer, the Devil, Shaytan sure thinks so. In this letter he tries to convince the human race, you, of his intentions.

They are pure.

Everything that was blamed on him was done as a smokescreen to cover more sinister motives.

The Fall? Not merely a matter of wanting to rule in Hell over serving in Heaven.

The Garden of Eden? He was trying to help us.

Jesus? Don't even ask.

With this letter Lucifer tells us his version of all the stories to settle his mind and settle the injustices of this world once and for all. Be careful...you might find yourself on the wrong side.

An entertaining short listen

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

The Book

I'm not sure if it was deliberate or not but the bit before the story about characters being fictitious made me laugh. I'm in no way religious and found the slightly humorous tone of the story to be good, Satan wasn't speaking in preachy or old fashioned language and it was interesting and entertaining. The story did get quite dark at times but never got bogged down by it.

The Production

The narrator was good and suited the character well, quality was good and it was very enjoyable to listen to.

AMAZING.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

It's good to look at things from a different perspective and this showcases that fact.

Sympathy For The Devil

This book is definitely new perspective on the creation story. I thoroughly enjoyed how the emotion and sympathy you felt for Lucifer. The Devil doesn't view it as a battle of good vs evil, rather of right vs wrong. And from his view he is right and just. It is the Creator whom is unfair. The narrator is spot on and carries the tone quite well. Definitely recommend.

Fantastic!

This is something of the best narration I've heard. Very interesting take on some scripture. This definitely is something that can be expounded upon to include more Biblical stories. It was a great listen! I highly recommend it!

In Praise of Folly meets Screwtape Letters

As short as this was, I really enjoyed it. I thought the narrator was a perfect choice to voice Lucifer. I enjoy books that give you the other side of the picture, and I thought this author had some interesting things to say about the history of Lucifer. After all, history is written by the victors.

A different point of view

Satan's Plea is a short story from Lucifer's point of view about his fall from heaven. The story gives us an interesting alternative take on things.The book helps us to understand that not everything is as it seems in the world. There are always two sides to a story and now you get to hear Lucifer's side of the story.

Mark Lindgren does a good job on narrating this book and every character has a unique voice.

Great and interesting, worth the listen!

To start this is a work of fiction, and a very good one. It broaches a figure in religion most would shy away from and casts an interesting monologue like letter about a different perspective of the story we all know so well! I understand that it is controversial but its a story, it doesn't attack religion it merely tells a compelling tale of a tired man, nothing weird or satanic. A story you'd sit and listen to an elder tell would be a good description of it.

Additionally the preformance added levels to the story. The narrator felt like a perfect fit for the overall tone of the story. Overall it was a good piece, it's a shorter book so a relatively easy listen you can get alot from. My suggestion, pick it up and go into it with an open mind, you just might find you really thoroughly enjoy it.

A short story from another perspective

This is a short story from the perspective of Satan and how he fell from Heaven. The bible only tells it from one side, but there are always more than one side to every story.

I discovered this book when someone on a message board recommended it. I clicked through several of the recommendations to find a new story and, funny enough, I bought it by accident! I decided to give it a try. It turned out to be a very happy accident. I highly enjoyed the new perspective of Heaven, Hell, God, and Satan.

Mark Lindgren was a great narrator. Any narrator who can change their voices well enough to make every character that speaks unique, is a good one by me. There are not many unique speakers in this tale, since it is a one-sided remembrance of the fall, but the characters that do have a talking role have very unique tone to each of them.

Overall, this accidental buy has become one of my favorite short stories I have read.
